Hello everybody :)
My name is Tigran Petrosyan and I'm an International Master of chess from Armenia, currently living in USA. I've been playing chess already 19 years, 9 of them professionally. I had many successes, being from national champion of Armenia to youth Olympic champion and I won many international Open CHESS tournaments.
Now I switched to programming, because it also seems very interesting to me, but my passion will always be chess.
I want to share my chess experience with my students to increase their chess skills I can't wait to see you in my courses.
So I hope the knowledge I give you will be really helpful in your future chess career.
