Wyzant is a tutoring platform with many great educators. Having been a chess instructor for several decades, I recognize the profiles of many other highly qualified chess teachers. The whiteboard on Wyzant is easy to post chess problems on, I simply tilt the camera toward my demo board for demonstrating games and I play chess on a popular chess server while keeping our Wyzant connection open to have real time interaction with students during training games. As a chess coach, I really find that Wyzant offers everything I need to teach meaningful chess lessons on their platform.
I often describe finding the right chess instructor as a similar experience to finding the right pair of shoes. Wyzant offers a low risk way to find and try out a chess coach to see if it’s a good fit. Several of my online students have taken lessons from a couple other chess teachers before choosing my services which means that they are using Wyzant to make informed decisions as to which teacher fits them best. By empowering students in this way, Wyzant is helping to raise the bar for chess educators and I think that’s a wonderful thing.
