I have not raised my lesson fees in 9 years, so I am going to raise my base rate from $85/hr to $95 on Jan 1, 2020. The other discount rates will be adjusted accordingly. Any lessons pre-paid before the announcement will be honored at the previous rate. Please see my fee page for all the details. Thanks!
Thanks to your support, I know have more than 100 subscribers. So my channel, which has 10 videos and growing, is now available through www.youtube.com/c/danheismanchess .
I have a new YouTube Channel which has 3 videos and I am planning on adding more each week. I am still trying to learn how to operate a YouTube channel but I think my channel's URL is https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCswhXU9OJwOB85Z8RgGEKOA … If anyone knows how I can attach my name to that, let me know, thanks.
The 16th annual Holly Heisman Memorial Fundraiser chess tournament will again be on the Sunday before Labor Day (Sep 2), but this time it will be at a new location: Esperanza Academy Charter School, 301 W. Hunting Park Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19140. For more information or entry, see https://www.mindseyepress.com/. If you can't attend but would like to make a donation to the Holly Heisman Memorial Fund to help women in need, please visit https://www.danheisman.com/donations.html ("Fund 2" at the bottom of the page). This event has raised about $20,000 for women in need since its inception.
So far I have left my "off" day as Tuesday.
As for questions, I am always glad to answer questions from anyone. If you have a question that can be answered in a very short email, you can email me the question. Otherwise, I much prefer a conversation than writing a long email, so you can either phone me or call me on skype. This contact information is always at the top of my web pages!
I think I will be changing my off day from Tuesday to Thursday. Let me know if you have any pros or cons about that...Thanks!
Hi! I got a web message via this site from Tom, who listed his email address as firstname.lastname@example.org. But when I tried to reply, it twice said that was an illegal email address. So Tom, if you see this, please email me directly at email@example.com so I can reply. Thanks!
Starting this previous week, my ICC videos have changed in format from game-based to puzzle-based. All my puzzle videos can be found at Puzzle Videos.
