Our Instructor - Rashad Babaev
Mr. Babaev has won many international tournaments and have obtained the title of International Grandmaster (the highest title bestowed to a chess player) from the World Chess Federation (FIDE) in 2007. Mr. Babaeve is uniquely qualified to teach chess because of his deep appreciation for chess as a sport that combines both science and art. He has devoted his life to the sport.
Below is what Mr. Babaev writes about himself: " I have studied and played the sport since I was four and have been taught by some of the best chess
teachers in the world including Isaak Prevorotsky, the teacher of Gary Kasparov (one of the most celebrated world chess champions). I have been teaching chess to kids (privately and in classes) and have mentored chess teams for 13 years. Some of the teams that I have trained took first and second places at National Championships. Many of my students became International Grandmaster. Helped many Grandmasters such as Vugar Gashimov (2756) Nidjat Mamedov ( 2605) in opening preparations. Rashad is one of the well-known opening expert. ( can see videos on chess.com)."
