I have been taking lessons with Vita since I was 9. Since then, my rating has gone up by almost 400 points and I won my first US National Scholastic Championship. I really enjoy my lessons with Vita. She gives me puzzles that prepare me to properly evaluate positions I face in real games. She also analyzes my tournament games, showing me subtleties in position and timing that I might have missed across the board. Vita is an excellent coach – she starts the lesson on time, is very reliable, and has a very approachable personality. I highly recommend her!
