Hello, my name is George Li. I have experience coaching chess for the past three years in both small group and individual settings. I gave hourly lessons twice a week to my high school chess team and they have placed 3rd two years in a row and captured the state championship in 2017’s iteration. Additionally, I have two years of experience with private lessons in both online and live settings.

I am an FIDE Master and I also have 2 International Master Norms. I am a 3 time Illinois Denker champion as well as a 3 time World Youth representative.

I serve primarily Glenview and Wilmette as well as the surrounding areas.
