My name is Keaton Kiewra and I am a professional Chess Instructor.  I am an International Master with two Grandmaster norms. I grew up in Lincoln Nebraska where I was the Nebraska State Chess Champion for nine consecutive years.  I also won six National Scholastic Titles during that time.  I moved to Dallas in 2005 to attend UTD on a Chess Scholarship.  Since graduating in 2009 I have made my living as a full time Chess Instructor.  I moved to San Diego in 2013 and am the founder and manager of the San Diego Surfers team for the PRO Chess League.  I am very proud to have some extremely successful students who have won National Scholastic Titles, represented the U.S. at World Youth Championship events, and been consistently ranked toward the top of their age group nationally.
