Daniel Levkov

National Master - National Champion 🏆

Hi, I am 18 years old and graduated from Columbia Grammar and Preparatory school, and am attending Kelley Business School in the fall. I reached the impressive title of National Master at the age of 13, which puts me in the .001% of competitive chess players around the world. I am a two time National Champion, US Junior Champion, and have attended World Youth Championships in South Africa and Slovenia. I led my school team to State Champions and runner-up for National Champions. I have taught chess for a few years and am excited to start teaching as a member of Instacoach. If you want lessons from an experienced, tactical, and aggressive player, you know who to book lessons with!

    As an exercise in curiosity and to test the plasticity of my brain, I signed up for a class with Daniel, the "whiz kid" "National Master" "he's so great -tryit", and my expectations were blown away. Daniel is instantly engaging and he led me through a game of Chess 101 with the low key confidence of a Master while making sure he gave me a way to think about each move and its implications. Even the lowly pawns came alive. Excellent time and money spent --- more than "A Fair Trade" (that's a chess term Daniel taught me and you'll be glad you understand that principal to guide your moves

    My son had a great lesson with Daniel. Daniel was professional and on time and you can tell he has coached many youths before from his mannerism and patience with an 8-year old. We look forward to more sessions with Daniel.
