He moved to Glendale in 1998 and spent a decade with the AAA chess Academy, founded by another Armenian immigrant. But he left this past year to start the American chess Academy.
With Andranik Matikozian, a three-time California state champion, Ambartsoumian now coaches more than 100 students. He teaches nearly every day of the week either in class or private sessions, and sometimes even online with students on the East Coast.
