GM Mac is the best at coaching and ensuring that kids enjoy learning and playing the game of Chess. He tries to keep things simple for kids to understand. He provides right level of focus on every student and challenge his students to go an extra mile. I do recommend him based on his coaching in last six months of so to my loved one.

I have had Mac for 5 years, and in that time, I have seen great growth in my chess. I started around 1600 with him, and I managed to get up to 2000. My openings have diversified and solidified while being open to play some fun sidelines. But I think the most important part was he was a positive and fun coach and always found a way to make chess great. I love to go to chess lessons to learn more chess and solve puzzles. Overall, I would recommend my coach and my friend, Mac.
Andrea Damon
My son has been taking chess lessons from Mac for 1.5 years as either private lessons or part of his group virtual summer camp program. Lessons with Mac are something my son looks forward to all day! He often starts the lesson with a new tactic or skill he wants my son to work on, then they often review one of my sons recent games and discuss different moves and ways he could have played, and then ends the lesson by playing a game. The group lessons were a fun experience where in addition to the new tactics that were taught, my son also had the opportunity to play against other kids roughly his age/ability in quick games in a tournament style. He was always so excited for every win and seeing where he ranked at the end of the class. I am very glad to have found Mac as a coach, he is patient, has taught my son a lot about chess, and most importantly helped my sons love for chess grow!
