    Chess Classes (Learn the secret techniques)

    Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
    The lessons are for people who want to improve their chess while developing a pleasure to play.

    I'll teach you everything about chess, starting with the basic rules to little-known techniques and secret tools used by the best players in the world.

    During the lessons, we will start with the correction of the small homework that I give to each course. Next, I'll teach you important ideas that you can use IMMEDIATELY. We finish the course with some chess games where I will give you feedback on how to improve.

    You will develop your critical thinking, patience, problem solving and memory skills.

    I am currently in Montreal. So if you're not around, you'll have to take online classes.

I teach chess to several students and I play chess as a hobby.

    Madara
    Doctor of Psychology based in London, UK, offering Psychology, Statistics, SPSS and Chess lessons online
    I am a Doctor of Psychology and researcher. Since October 2016 I have been successfully tutoring many B.A. and M.A. and Ph.D. level students and professionals who required help with Psychology (AS, A-level, and Degree level), Data analysis, SPSS, jamovi, JASP, R, Statistics, Research Methods, or were looking for assistance with their research projects/ theses/ dissertations. I am specialised in Clinical Psychology (reading disability/ dyslexia), although I have good knowledge in other fields of psychology, as well as research methodology and data analysis (expert in SPSS). I would love to help students with the knowledge I have in individual live one-to-one sessions online via Skype/Zoom. I can also recommend literature on a particular subject and send something I already have in my database. Additionally to psychology, I am teaching chess. I have 28 years of experience playing chess, I am a candidate master of Latvia, having an international (FIDE) rating of 2063, and an English Chess Federation rating of 2125, which is quite a good level. I am especially good at blitz and rapid. My greatest achievement is 1st place in English Open Women & Girls Rapid Championship in 2019. I have around 8 years of experience teaching chess to juniors and adults. I have been tutoring many students across the UK and have helped them to progress in chess and some of them gained great achievements in the tournaments and were qualified for the next competitions. I can teach basic concepts, moves, strategies, and tactics for beginners and help to improve the game technique of intermediate or advanced players, suggesting theory, ideas, and winning game plans.

    Boost your chess skills! A seasoned player with 12+ years of competitive chess experience teaches chess online.
    Do you want to improve your chess skills with tailor-made chess lessons from an avid chess lover and tournamet player? Do you want to increase your understanding of the game, become sharp or simply boost that online rating to dazzle friends? Or maybe you want to prepare for tournaments and enter the professional chess field? If you answer yes to any of the question, you're in the right place! Hi, my name is Michał and I am a medicine student and an active chess player. I've played the game since I was 8 years old and I won my first tournament at the age of 10. Since then, I have won dozens of tournaments and progressed my FIDE rating up to 1970. Now, at the age of 21, I am approaching my first (national) title of candidate master, which I hope to achieve soon. My approach to the teaching is very much based on the individual student and his goals. I am of the belief that whatever you want to achieve in chess, you should study all aspects of the game and during our classes we cover many different topics, such as tactical patterns, endgame techniques, positional play, openings, and more. We solve thematic puzzles, analyse the games of chess masters, games of the student, and obviously... play! The lessons take place on lichess.org with video-call and I'm using the account 'TheCoachChampion'. You can check some of my games if you want, just go to the site. A lesson lasts at least one hour but can be longer. Who are my lessons for? Pretty much anybody who shares with me the passion for chess.

    CHESS - Even CHINESE CHESS Too ! - MASTERMIND The CLEVER WAY ! ------ BEGINNERS & CHAMPIONSHIP TRAINING !
    Testimonies --------- In just 5 and 1/2 days in February, 2022, I was beginning to transform almost roughly half a secondary school's children ! A Laboratory Technician & Former Senior Mathematics Teacher liked what I was doing - and noted I was the only teacher at the school she saw using my method ! The Head of Science wanted its success for her own children ! The Head of Physics wanted its success for his own children ! The school cleaners liked and agreed strongly with what I was doing ! Children kept clapping hands for me in different classes ! The most dangerous [ latent murderer ] boy, Will, was transformed by my 6th day ! His rebellious classmate, Jackson, was transformed by the 5th day ! From my 1st day to my 6th last day teaching at the school as a Supply Teacher, children kept calling out in the Playgrounds, " Hello, Mr Lee ! " That week I was helped by 72 million pastors & members of Christ Embassy praying from 6am for the children of the world and the Lord Jesus Christ answered miraculously our prayers. 92% Mathematics - By A Girl NOT In Top Sets - ca 7 Lessons ONLY ! In just 6 months of Home Tuition, 7 A, A, A, A, A, A & A* - BY A LOWEST SET Cardiff High School GCSE BOY ! 100% SUCCESS - with zero rejection of learning - BY DYSLEXIC CHILDREN - Since 2016 ! ALL BECAUSE THE LORD JESUS CHRIST HAS BLESSED MY PEDAGOGICAL METHODS - Since 1985 ! Thanks to Him, He used me to bless many families - since I entered school teaching in 1992 ! ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ EXPERIENCED TEACHER - I BEGAN TEACHING - OVER 35 YEARS AGO ! HOME - SCHOOL - UNIVERSITY - BUSINESS ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- BIOLOGY - EASIER , MORE ACCURATE WAYS TO LEARN CERTAIN TOPICS In ! ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- * 100 % SUCCESS - Teaching Dyslexic Children - In RECENT YEARS ! * 100 % SUCCESS - UNIVERSITY Personal Statements - OVER ALL MY YEARS So Far ! 7 A, A, A, A, A, A & A* - By Bottom Set GCSE Boy - In JUST 6 Months' Tuition - Cardiff Hign School ! How ? * Since 1992, I have given my school and home classes ACTIVE LEARNING rather than the popular PASSIVE LEARNING. This lets students enjoy lessons and learn FASTER. * I use special layouts of 2s, 3s and 4s to aid the brain assimilate faster and easier. * I use special serene colours and avoid negative colours that slow the brain's cognitive processes. * I teach students which daily activities to avoid so that their brains go back to normal in 7 to 31 days - for many if they follow my advice fully. * I show school & university students a FAR EASIER & MORE EFFICIENT JAMES WAY TO DO HOMEWORK ! …. so be more than ready and well prepared BEFORE THE EXAMS if you follow my simple, easy methodology fully properly ! All because in 1987, I decided to read the Holy Bible more - and my wife prays for my students ! The Lord Jesus Christ is the One Who has taught me to teach in EXCELLENT WAYS ! MANY Subjects ! It was not by my 3 universities. The best Teachers' Training College at the time , Sir Robert Black College Of Education, where I obtained a Certificate of Special Education trained in some ways like what God Almighty gave me through The Holy Bible. If it had not been for the Lord Jesus, I would have been like all the other teachers - and would not have achieved dynamic top results for pupils who followed my methods fully properly.
