My name is Tejas Kondedeshmukh and am based in Pune, India. I have an international FIDE chess rating of 2060 and been playing chess since the last 21 years now; my experience of tournament play is around 70 to 80 chess tournaments from State to National level.
I conduct chess classes from beginner to professional level students using chess software along with practical examples to enhance learning. I try to focus on interactions with students during the classes to gauge their understanding and clear their concepts.
One of our best! High-quality profile, qualifications verified and responds during the day. Tejas will plan your first class with care.
I have been conducting chess classes since the last 9 years now and have taught approximately 120-130 students.
Apart from achievements in the field of chess, the teachings have helped many of my students improve their concentration and patience level. Based on the student needs, we customize the teaching style, be it to improve concentration or to become a professional chess player.
Brief summary of my teaching career :
1)Current Student Strength – 52, Online Students -27
2)7 students have active FIDE rating since 2017
3)Teaching students primarily in the UK, US, UAE,Italy,Singapore, New Zealand, Australia and India.
4)I am also working as an Instructor with Classvio online classes ( based out of Singapore) since June 2018 .
I prefer webcam lessons using either Skype/Zoom. It makes the teaching more focused and easier to understand. I also teach groups/international students/corporates but the rate specifications are different for that. For international students, the cost is 20 USD/18 GBP/20 EUR per hour, can be negotiated to a certain extent.
In case there are 2 students, the fee for the 2nd student becomes 50%. For example, in case of students from the US, the fee for 1 student is 25 USD; the fee for 2 students is 25 USD + 12.5 USD = 38 USD.
The fees can be negotiated in case students will be enrolling for more than 1 class per week.

Perfect! Tejas is a wonderful teacher and my son has enjoyed his lessons and improved wonderfully under Tejas' guidance. Excellent structure to lessons, easy to communicate with, flexible and a patient teacher, Tejas is excellent! Thanks Tejas, he looks forward to his next lesson! I highly recommend him!
Henry's enthusiasm for chess is really infectious! I think we had a good connect right from day 1 and it has been an absolute pleasure taking his lessons. Rebecca has also been very supportive and this motivates me to improve my teaching further.
Excellent! I purchased chess lessons for my husband as a gift. Here is my husband's review:
"It has been a pleasure working with Tejas these past few weeks. From our first introductory session, Tejas demonstrated his skills as a teacher to get to know my abilities and needs as a student, which has then informed the structure and flow of the rest of our lessons. From week to week, Tejas challenges me as a student and pushes to break out of my comfort soon and grow as a chess player. I continue to appreciate the homework that I receive from Tejas in between lessons and the fact that he always quickly replies to my messages. I would highly recommend Tejas as a Chess Teacher. "
Perfect! Tejas is a great teacher. His class is well-organized with learning points and chess scenarios. He's well prepared and the class has a good structure, moving from one topic to the next. He's also responsive with my questions and is just a friendly and extremely competent professional to work with. I highly recommend his lessons!
Perfect! Tejas started teaching me chess in April 2018. I was a total newcomer to the game & started off with the basics.
Over these 6 months my game has improved quite a lot. Tejas has been a good teacher showing patience during class & ensuring all concepts are understood well.
The homework & occasional tests also help to review the game & concepts taught.
I wish him the best to achieve future success in chess.
Elisha has been an extremely enthusiastic learner of the game. She always makes it a point to get her doubts cleared and concepts well understood. It has been a nice and enjoyable experience teaching her and I believe she will master the nuances of the game soon.
Perfect! Tejas is an extremely professional and hard working tutor. He is very friendly and takes his tutoring very seriously. Under his guidance my chess has already improved immensely after just a few lessons. I look forward to do many more lessons with him! I would extremely recommend him.
Thank you so much for your feedback. It has motivated me further to strive for excellence. I will see to it that I finetune my teaching further so I can add more value.
Excellent! Tejas has been coaching my son Krishna since Feb 2018. We have had a good experience till date and the classes are conducted punctually and professionally. The feedback system developed by him of sending the parents a monthly report of what progress has been made has been helpful. We are happy with the classes and hope Tejas maintains the same level of excellence going forwards.
Thanks a lot for the feedback!
Perfect! My son has had a few classes with Tejas until now. We have found Tejas to be very good in promptness of reply, teaching structure and punctuality. A key factor is the fact that he gives regular homework which ensures that there is some chess study throughout the week. I hope he continues in the same way for his future classes and wish him well for his endeavors.
I got the opportunity to teach Elitza’s son Jonathan through the SuperProf website. Right from the first class, both of them have been extremely courteous in their behaviour and very co-operative also.
As regards to the classes, Jonathan has been sharp, quickly grasped what has been taught and as of yet never missed completing the self study assignments. I feel the classes are going on well and his game will definitely improve further.
