Senior Coach Simon Tsinis

Simon is a childhood friend of Ms. Tulman, and was a major influence in her entrance into the chess world. As a child, Ms. Tulman suffered a stunning defeat at the hands of her childhood acquaintance at a local park, and was driven to ensure that it would never happen again. The two have been friends ever since, and Simon has been a staunch supporter of the ICA program.

Simon possesses great skill in the ability to evaluate a student’s strengths and weaknesses so as to match them with the instructor who would be most able to guide that student to rapid improvement. He interacts well with students of all ages, and is skilled at aiding the most frustrated students to a clearer understanding of chess theory.
