Welcome to Malibu Chess! I am Bill, the owner of In addition to being a productive business owner, I am also chess master who has been playing tournament chess for decades. Chess is my passion and I study and play chess as often as possible.
I offer chess lessons to children and adults in the Malibu and surrounding areas. I have helped many of my students overcome all obstacles in order to improve their chess abilities. Some of the chess skills my students learn are applied to every day life, such as lessons about thinking ahead, about consequences, about building self-esteem.
