I've been in love with the game of chess since I was introduced to the game by my grandfather at the age of 6. After decades of taking lessons and learning from strategy books, I have put together a comprehensive course that covers all the fundamentals of chess that every chess player must know. I also teamed up with two different International Masters who looked over the course and gave me feedback on how to make it even better and more comprehensive, just to make sure there aren't any fundamentals missing from the course.
Michael: "The instructor is very helpful by his explanation of do’s and don’t’s when moving your minor pieces. I’m very satisfied with this course."
This course is for beginner chess players. This includes those who have never played chess before in their lives, as well as those who have some experience playing the game, but are looking to take their game to the next level. For example, if you are a 1200-1300 rated player or lower, or if you don't have a chess rating at all, then this course is perfect for you.
By the end of this course, you will know all the fundamentals of chess in all 3 stages of the opening, the middle-game and the endgame. The aim of this course is to teach you how to play chess properly in order to boost your ability, as well as your ratings from a beginner to.a great player; we basically take you by the hand and walk you through all of these fundamentals step by step.

Hi there! My name is Shervin, and I am a Best-Selling Instructor and YouTuber.
I have been an instructor all my life. When I was in middle school I tutored my classmates, in high school I organized and lead my school's strings band, and in college I started teaching music part-time at may local music institution.
I have always found it effortless and incredibly rewarding to walk people through how to do something, and help them break down how to learn and improve in whatever it is that they are trying to accomplish.
Since I started teaching on Udemy, I have been amazed at how easy it is to reach thousands of students all over the globe and to share my expertise with them. My aim with each course is to provide them an experience as similar as possible to the experience that people who take private lessons with me get. What I love the most about the video format is that I can explain each of the topics using visual guides and demonstrations that may be harder to do in person compared to on video, therefore making it easier for the student to follow along.
