Coach Aleks started playing chess at age of 6 and became team champion of Macedonia at age of 8. He has been teaching chess since 2009 in Phoenix, AZ, and in 2011, he started teaching chess online. He had taught the game of chess in over 20 schools, as an after school activity, to over 1000 students which have successfully learned this magnificent game.
His students have won the Best of Phoenix, the Governors Cup of Arizona, as well as many other tournaments. Having a BA degree in Teaching Philosophy, he has the patience and love for teaching, as well as the knowledge of the game, which makes him the perfect Coach for K-12 students.
He lives in Phoenix with his wife Aleksandra and their son Ivan and they are all enthusiastic Sun’s fans, as well as regulars at all local chess events. He holds a Chess Coach Certificate from the United States Chess Federation (USCF).
Sunny Chess was founded in 2012, by coach Aleks. It is a school specialized in teaching children chess, online, as an after school program. Our idea is to insure as many schools as possible to get access to quality chess coaches, certified by the USCF. All of our coaches are professional chess trainers and enthusiasts when it comes to working with children.
The teaching curriculum that we use has been created, developed and improved continuously since 1925.
