Greetings Chess Players. My name is Chris Torres and this is my daily chess musing for Sunday May 2, 2021.
The most satisfying aspect of being a chess teacher is watching students grow their understanding of the game of chess by absorbing the ideas that you have taught them. Recently, I received a very nice progress update from a hardworking young member of the Daily Chess Musings community whom I have the pleasure of mentoring.

Hi Coach Chris,
Thank you so much for all of your teachings and chess camps!
They have helped me improve drastically. I also enjoyed your gifts very much and feel that they are cool.
You and your teachings have helped me achieve:
-1800 on lichess.org
-1st place in a tournament in a chess and math rated tournament
-a better understanding of chess
I owe all of this to you!
Your teachings and camps were what got me first interested in chess and helped me get to a good level of play in a few months.
Thank you for you time and effort,
Thanks for the update Ethan but those achievements are all yours. I am just happy to have been able to help you along your path to chess mastery.
