Josiah Stearman


I am a 15 years old FIDE Master from California, USA. I am currently ranked #4 in the US and #45 in the World for my age. Outside of chess, I play a variety of sports and my favorite subject in school is math. I have been working with Nikola for 3 years now and he has helped me improve greatly. I have been selected to the All American Team twice in that span and will be selected again this year. I have achieved one IM norm with more soon to come! Nikola has been an inspiring coach who puts a lot

of passion for chess. He has helped in every area of my game and has quite the opening repertoire with files on nearly everything you can think of. I am looking forward to what is to come with him in the near future!
