Russ Makofsky, Chess Instructor

Russ Makofsky, a life-long chess player, teaches children and adults the basics and finer points of The Royal Game for Chess NYC in the heart of New York’s chess community, Greenwich Village. Although the name Makofsky won’t share the renown of Kasparov, Fischer, or Spassky, Russ says you don’t have to be a Grandmaster to make your mark as a great teacher.
