intermittent thoughts on my life and work as the chess coach at IS 318, a public middle school in Brooklyn
EV: Are you a chess professional then, or do you also teach or work?ES: You know, sometimes I’m a chess professional, sometimes not. I have a few students, but I’m very picky when it comes to this because I find teaching hurts my play. So the students I have are mostly quite good.Lizzy,What are your fellings regarding the above answer
I thought it was hilarious, "sometimes...sometimes not..." I agree that teaching a lot can make you oversimplify or over-verbalize chess. It can also help, for example, I certainly have learned a lot from teaching, but I am lucky to have some stronger students.
I've met Elizabeth, so I can insult her all I want.
