Nitin Khandelwal (Divyanshi Khandelwal’s Father)

“Best chess academy in India. My daughter is taking online classes from this academy under the guidance of Manish sir. He is really a cool person and a hardworker. The best thing I observed in him that he take interest equally in all his students not limited to one or two students who are doing good. One more thing I observed in sir is that his positive approach. I am from Nagpur, Maharashtra. I approached many coaches but did not find any suitable one. Fortunately, I came in contact with sir and he approached positively and showed his belief in my daughter. In result, her game improved a lot. She recently selected from Nagpur district Under 10 category. Now she will represent Nagpur in upcoming state tournament. Thank you so much sir”

Lot of his students do very well in advanced tournaments. I now feel, I have finally found the right coach for my kid.”
