Online Chess Lessons

If you are interested in learning more about chess, I have twenty-seven years experience giving chess lessons to students from all parts of the world. I am an International Master, with two grandmaster norms, and I play professional chess. I give over the board lessons as well as lessons on the internet. I also teach by audio. My best references are my students. Please read what they have to say about me. My rates are very reasonable and I give discounts for purchases of more than ten lessons.

You may contact me by sending an email. By taking my chess lessons, you will not only learn how to play chess, you will also have fun while you learn. - Goran Vojinovic, IM

Recommendation from Jason Wang, USA 2nd Grade Level Champion

It has been half year since my son, Jason, first time took lesson with Goran. It is not an easy task to teach a 1st grader by Internet on chess theory, and we did have concern at the beginning. However, his progress in the past half year proofs effectiveness of Goran's teaching. 

Goran consistently introduces and explains the chess principles to Jason instead of fixed openings or patterns. He always illustrates Jason's games using those principles. This definitely helps Jason have deeper understanding of chess as a 6-7-years old boy. 

My family really appreciate Goran's help. Without that, Jason could not be on the national stage so quickly.

Dear Goran,
You are awesome! You are a great teacher! You help me because you are patient to let me think. I like you because you are fun. I like you because you are strict. You send me openings that I don't know. I think you are such a great teacher.
I think you are the best !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! -- Jason, USA Champion 2nd Grade

Former World Champion, GM Gary Kasparov, Presents Bronze Medal to Christopher Shen, USA, at the World Youth Championship U-8 Years in Maribor, Slovenia

(Below is what Chris' father had to say about IM Goran Vojinovic.)

bronze medal

"Goran has been teaching my son, Christopher Shen for more than 1 year. We all love him. Goran reminds me of my high school soccer coach who was always having energy to teach us good stuff. He is tough but very kind coach to kids. He lets you know exactly about your strengths and weaknesses and tells you how to fix problems. He shows chess kids a key characteristic of a qualified chess player; passion that he is always looking for the best move on the board.

In this past World Youth Chess Championship held in Maribor, Slovenia, Goran helped my son prepare for games on a daily basis and he is much responsive to answer our questions promptly. It would be much harder for Christopher to win a World Youth Medal without his coaching. The combination of his chess knowledge and teaching experience to young talent makes Goran one of the best chess coaches in the world."
