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.
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.)
"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."
