Fabio Botarelli is a wonderful chess instructor and coach. Thanks to his chess teaching methods my son who has dyslexia got 3rd place out of the 320 participants in his section at the 2014 Elementary Chess Nationals in Dallas, Texas.

Fabio was clearly passionate about his work. He was thorough and responsive to feedback, and worked to find formats and materials that helped engage students. Fabio was always on time and never missed a session. He made a point of communicating any adjustments or issues to appropriate staff
