- Michael MOur son enjoys Coach Joseph’s class and his skill at the game has improved immensely. Coach is friendly but firm, expecting his students maintain focus. This is one reason why his students have done so well in national and international tournaments. I have recommended these classes to other parents and we expect to be with Virginia Commonwealth Chess Kids for years to come. Regardless of the level of your child this is a safe, effective and worthwhile place to let them explore their passion for the game.

He is there at every major chess event to encourage his students, analyzes every game in depth and provides personalized training plans as student skill level. Most of the chess trainers are money minded these days, but Joseph is a purely genuine chess coach and his main focus is to help out the student achieve their goals and win more trophies. He provided so much chess training materia...
LloydMy son first started chess with Joseph at a summer camp at school. He learned and grew so much during that week, that we continued taking lessons from him. Coach Joseph has a lot of passion when teaching the children. He brings a lot of knowledge and experience and translates that into a way my son can really grow in the game of chess. Thank you Coach Joseph.........
