Friday's classes will be taught by Mr. Dean Ippolito - an International Master who has been regarded as one of the top coaches in the US for nearly two decades. By age 25, he had already coached three of the five youngest national champions in US history. Overall, Dean has trained more national and international champions in a shorter time frame than anyone in US history.
Saturday's classes will be taught by Mr. Mackenzie Molner - a top US Grand Master with many national titles to his name, including being the 2013 US Open Co-Champion. He has coached many state and national championship teams and players, even coaching the United States World Youth Team and a student to a World Championship.
Dean of Chess Academy was formed in 2002 by International Master of Chess Dean Ippolito and has since grown exponentially. The academy's core staff includes notable instructors who hold many international and national titles. In addition to their playing ability, their instructors have many years of teaching experience. These accomplishments and talents combined make the staff at Dean of Chess unsurpassed and one of the finest in the country. The academy currently coaches dozens of nationally ranked scholastic players! So whether you are a beginner interested in learning the basics of chess or if you have aspirations of a national championship, the staff at Dean of Chess Academy can help you learn the lessons on what to do and what to avoid from these former child prodigies who have experienced it all.
