Lessons with the Master
Yeah, you've heard about Ilye's
chess rating and accomplishments. But it takes more than that to
be a good chess teacher and coach. Ilye has over

to above 2000. He has helped me with my tactics, openings,
middle game,endgame, and most importantly, my strategy. He
is very thorough in his lessons and his constant enforcement

are fun and enjoyable and never seem to be boring. He interacts
very well with the student and makes the lessons more of a
participation exercise rather than a dictation. I can say
that because of his help and teachings, I have been able to
be the New Jersey State Representative for the Denker Tournament
of High School Champions, a national competition between the
winners from each state, two consecutive years. In addition
I have been able to win the under 2000 section in the US Open
as well as tie for the secondprize in a later year. Recently
I won the under 2000 section at the NJ Open. Mr. Figler is
an amazing teacher and I highly recommend that you consider
investing in lessons withhim because if you have such a strong
passion for the game like I do, he can help you become a better
