"Kings Indian is a famous style of Chess Opening"
Patience - Analysis - Encourage
Gavin's knowledge of the game, his detailed analysis, his ability to convey both praise and criticism in a helpful, non-threatening, non-judgmental but patient manner, made his style a huge hit with my son. Gavin not only knows the game incredibly well, he knows what he can expect of beginners, he knows what beginners need to hear to remain persistent and encouraged, and he speaks in a language and with a manner that reaches these kids. Thanks Gavin!
It was a pleasure to listen to Mr. Francis treat my son as a worthy, free-thinking young student as he asked challenging questions, gave appropriate critique where needed, and offered welcome congratulations whenever my son answered or performed well. I could see my son's confidence grow during that interaction, and he has carried it through these weeks later. What a great instructor!
Mr. Francis was extremely patient and understanding with my son. He would not have achieved the depth of play, understanding or appreciation of chess without Mr. Francis' encouragement and help. I believe when he gets a little older, he will appreciate the time and effort Mr. Francis put into the course with him.
Kenneth served as a personal chess coach for two of my children, and also taught chess in their after-school program. Kenneth relates well to children and communicates content at a level that they are able to understand and process. I would recommend Kenneth for his teaching and private coaching skills in chess as well as other academic areas.
As I listened in on some of the lessons, I was impressed by Gavin's patience, knowledge and ability to provide useful advice that enabled my son to make significant progress.
