About Me



My name is Demetrius Goins to my chess students I'm known as Coach Demetrius. I first learned the game of chess from my mother and in my teenage years I learned basic chess strategy from my uncle. With my passions for chess I have achieved a peak chess rating of 2166 USCF and 2140 FIDE.  I'm currently active in playing tournaments to reach my goal of 2200 USCF.

I love to teach the game of chess. I strongly believe chess is a tool that can be used to cultivate human abilities through analytical skills and confidence. 

I have been teaching chess to children and adults for quite some years. I'm a full time instructor for Weibel Chess Team and Shoreview Chess
