Change for 2015: Due to difficulties in collecting several unpaid lessons for 2015 (or at least getting students to show they made payment), I will have to follow the lead of most other instructors and require same-day payment. I apologize for any inconvenience.
Full-Time Instructor: Adults & Juniors of all levels, live or internet - I almost always have room for new students
To support our chess charity, we have a store to sell merchandise via our Chess.com Dan Heisman Learning Center. The store, with logo'd merchandise, is at http://www.cafepress.com/dhlc. All net proceeds go to the Dan Heisman Chess Support Fund charity to support local youth chess via The Philadelphia Foundation.
Several have written to ask about the availability of my weekly videos on ICC: My videos are still scheduled to be published every Saturday on ICC: http://danheisman.home.comcast.net/~danheisman/Main_Chess/dan_videos.htm. Exception: if ICC is doing a "Game of the Day" video for a big event, then the "regular" video that day does not get published and is put off til next week. Since many tournaments start and/or end on weekends, videos due to come out on weekends, like my "Improve Your Chess" series, are more affected.
All my articles (Chess Cafe, Chess.com & others, except for articles on my Chess.com show) are arranged by subject on a single web page. Enjoy!
Charitable Donations Page - If you find my site helpful, please consider making a tax-deductible donation to one of my charities, Thanks!!
Have a question? You don't have to be a student; I will answer for free if you call (please try to keep call relatively short). Please call 610-649-0750 (preferred) or email your phone number and I will call you. It is much easier to have a phone conversation, but I also answer all legitimate email questions.

Sample of my art (including chess stuff) - Except for the Black king, most of my best stuff had already been wall-mounted and is not shown. I will draw a custom-ordered, signed, 8.5x11 grey-scale for $39, money-back guarantee. So far less than 10 sold: Collector's item?!
Playing lately: Castle-Clash - don't laugh, chess players; it's a tough strategic game.
I was live on the Howard Stern show with Scott Andreacci of Integcorp Monday May 18, 2009 roughly 9:40-11 AM.
Shelly and I attended the 2005 Heisman Trophy Dinner in NY. I said Hi to John Capelletti (Penn State) and Shelly to Tony Dorsett (Pitt). We got our picture taken with the Heisman Trophy. Football coach John Heisman was my great-grandfather's first cousin.
