Dear Jason,
I am writing to thank you for your work with my daughter with regard to her Chess.  Since beginning with you I have noticed two key changes. Firstly, she is way more interested in practicing and playing, both on her own and in tournaments.  She seems very driven.  Secondly, her performance in the tournaments she competes in has improved.  She is beating higher ranked players more and more. Thank you for sharing your knowledge of the game with her, and for helping stoke her passion for Chess.

I always knew how to play chess but was often frustrated since I couldn’t compete against ranked amateurs. Now, thanks to Coach Ciano, Chess is fun and I’m consistenly winning matches online, against colleagues, and in NYC tournaments.

Jason instructs with a very compelling balance of good humor and matter-of-fact rigor that has instilled in our five-year-old son both a genuine love of the game and a generally greater ability to focus.
