“Attila is a very good coach I highly recommend him for anyone looking to improve in chess seriously, he has helped me a great deal in getting my chess back to state, I work with him once a week and it realy improves my chess understanding every time. We work on an new opening repertoir with him and I was at first quiet worried with the amount of time it would take and the amount of time i have in a week but after a few lessons with him it realy feels like there is nothing to learning new openings he realy takes time with what he teaches, doesnt just hastely go through lines if i have any questions about anything we would immediatly stop and analyze what ever idea i saw and he would explain it great. I will defenitly continue studying with him as long as I can”

“Looking for a chess coach?  Want proven results?  Look no further!  Under IM Turzo’s patient tutelage, in less than six months, my rating has gone up from 1514 to 1742 USCF, I have won the 2011 US Class C Championship, and I am already beating 2000+ rated players.

In situations where I already know what openings my opponent is likely to play, Attila has given me a specific opening repetoire to study and prepare in response, and I have won or drawn every match as a result.

I highly recommend IM Attila Turzo.  He’s supportive and friendly, is able to quickly highlight strengths and weaknesses in any position, and list other master games for me to study.  He also documents homework and keeps a log of all games we have analyzed together.  In short, Attila’s coaching has been critical to my success.”

Brian - bshicoff - Austin, Texas, United States 

“I’ve been studying with Attila for a month now, and I am very satisfied with the quality of the lessons.  His chess coaching experience is obvious.  He has helped me to develop an opening repertoire suited for my style, and I am already a more confident player as I am now playing the right openings.  Attila is passionate about chess, and this is something that’s very important for any chess teacher.  I am looking forward to many more lessons with him.”

“Attila is an excellent coach.  I have been studying with him for several months and I can feel and see the difference. I can only echo the comments of the others.  He is clearly a good communicator and has really helped my self-confidence and attitude towards the game.  Money well spent!”

David - Interalia2127 - Budapest, Hungary 

“Attila has coached me for 8 months. He is an excellent coach and has helped focus my chess analysis and study time. Through his help, I believe that my playing ability has stablized and my confidence is greater for my chess games for both OTB and online chess. He has pointed out various “bad habits” I’ve developed.

In our sessions, we’ve covered building opening repertoires, position analysis, end game play and middle game planning. The sessions are very focused and, as a follow up,  he sends the games that we’ve analyzed (along with the study lines) and a record of what was covered. In addition, he assigned homework to help keep me working toward my objectives.

I consider these sessions very valuable and feel that my playing strength is much stronger. I highly recommend him as a chess coach.”

“I was searching around for a good teacher when I first met Attila. I met him by joining one of his simuls and talking after the game with him. In the game we played I was blown away by his superior endgame technique and after taking lessons with him I still see him as an excellent endgame player. He was very friendly when we first met and I know that he takes good care of his students.

Ever since I started getting lessons from him I have seen a nice improvement in my play and rating. I give credit to him for my goals that I have reached. I was able to score my first over-the-board win against a FIDE master that was previously beating me constantly before Attila taught me. I am extreamly fortunate to have met him during my time of searching around for chess coaches.”

Matt - WonderWats4DinR - United States 

“A few years ago, I took classes with Attila.  He really helped improve my gameplay.  Even though I no longer play chess, I treasure the classes that I had with him.”
