". . . little shall I grace my cause

In speaking for myself. Yet, by your gracious patience,

I will a round unvarnish'd tale deliver . . ."

(William Shakespeare's Othello, I.iii.88-90)

This is my son's chess teacher, the reigning U. S. Champion, featured on the cover of the August issue of Chess Life magazine. He's every bit as charming in person as the photos make him appear. And he's a dream of a teacher: demanding but kind, empathetic, enthusiastic about his craft and about sharing it with others, constantly supportive, and willing to go beyond mere teaching to being a friend and mentor. And as you can see, he knows his stuff!
