About Me

I am originally from England, but after living there for 11 years I moved to Amsterdam. I love musical instruments, and I have played many ranging from the piano to drums, to trumpet to recorder. I am a huge fan of traveling, my family takes me to all corners of the globe. I am such a foodie, the more exotic the food is, the better. Overall I love spending time with family and friends when I am not studying to become a veterinarian.

Education

International School of Amsterdam, Netherlands, Amstelveen
As an expat, I have experienced very different educational systems, but neither one better or worse. Attending an International school allows one to get a sense of real cultures beyond the walls of your country or continent. From the involvement to reality, which I have been connected to for many years, I have learned a certain maturity which allows me to adapt in different situations.

Eagle House Boarding School - England, Crowthourne
Boarding school taught me to be independent, and organised.

Experience / Qualifications

I volunteer at a cat rescue shelter in Amsterdam. I have gone there for nearly 3 years and it has been an amazing journey,
Hi, I am 16 years old and I am a personal trainer. I have been working out for a lot of my teenage life, I know many workout routines which can best fit many different types of students. I have learnt to personalise class to make sessions both efficient, but also fun for the student. I like to have a laugh, but am also a professional meaning I work hard, and am organised. I hope to see you soon!
Hi, I am a 16 year old boy who can help people interested in excelling at Fortnite. I can teach building, shooting, overall game tactics, and any other aspect of interest. I have been playing for a long time, I have won Arena championships, which are no walk in the park. I love to have fun, which means I can interact in a great way with young children, but I am also social and professional meaning I can work with older students too. I am flexible with my way of teaching so I can easily personalize the session to suite any type of student.

Passionate about the game of chess since my childhood, I ranked in the top 3 of Quebec and Canada (top 1 the last two years that I played) in the categories of my age for several years in a row, until in the under 16 section, where I stopped competing. I now want to pass on my knowledge in this wonderful game. We will start the lessons with the correction of the homework that I gave in the previous lesson, then we will move forward in the subject. The course is given in a dynamic and fun way! Learning and fun guaranteed!

Abdimalik
My student Sharipov became the champion of Uzbekistan!
I'm going to implement an individual approach. Identifying and improving weak areas is important and should take place. However, I believe that creating a personal style is far more essential and requires reinforcing skills that stand out at the very beginning. Playing chess the way you like leads to more enjoyment as well as better results. In the era when most of the players try to do the same, people with a unique style have an advantage.

Pradip
attacking- secret of attack (double attack, pin, deflection, discovered)
Attack is the most important technique in chess. If player fail to do proper attack in game, he/she may lose a winning match also. Every strong attack requires very basic fundamental knowledge of chess tactics, tactics helps to create a plan and calculated attack on opponent which proves decisive in game. I have planned this course to understand attack concept theoretically and as well practically to use during the game in any situation. You will learn how to calculate and when and where to attack which will become a strong weapon for you during the game.

Olivier
An International Master comes to your home to teach you how to play chess!
Do you often wonder why you can't progress? Because you are looking right to left for information, advice and books to read but you get scattered ... Taking private lessons will save you a lot of time because I went through all these steps, I know what works and what which does not work. So I can explain and quickly teach you the essential concepts and which books to study in order to be effective. Whether you want to compete, beat your grandfather, your little sister or if you want to beat the pretentious boys in your class: this announcement is for you! I started teaching chess professionally in 2003. I have had over 200 students of all ages (5 to 87) and all levels (from beginner to master candidate). I mainly give private lessons but I also give lessons in clubs. I coached several regions for the French youth championships for 4 years. I gave several simultaneous (about 25 players), I even had a chess stand in a shopping center for a whole weekend where I played free games against the public. Recent examples: in November 2019 I had 2 new students (29 and 30 years old) who were beginners. They were both 1150 and 1200 on Lichess. One decided to take 3 hours of lessons per week and the other 4 hours. 1 year later, they arrived at 2000 on the same site! Course of the course: If you compete or if you only play on the internet: We will analyze your games in order to assess your strengths, your weaknesses and see how you perceive the game in order to jointly define a progression plan according to your profile and your availability. I prepare my lessons with care: - A complete and efficient opening repertoire, adapted to your style, with whites as with blacks - Plan construction in the game environment with the study of classic games: dynamic game, positional game, prophylaxis, decision making, calculation of variants and how to win a winning game. - Many tactical exercises - And of course the study of the essential finals in order to master the endgames. When I teach children, my approach is above all fun. I advance at the pace of the student so that he learns the different rules and techniques while having fun! My lessons boil down to this: good humor and efficiency! Presentation : Hello everyone ! My name is Olivier, I learned chess at the age of 8 and I joined a club at 12. At 24 I became a Master of the International Chess Federation (Master FIDE) and at 25 (in 2006) I became an International Master (2400 elo). In France, I am around 200th French player out of 55,000 licensees. Competition level, I played in interclub in all existing divisions (from National 5 to top 12). I have also participated in more than 600 tournaments including many international tournaments. I have won over 40 tournaments whether they are blitz tournaments, rapids or classic paced tournaments. For the rest, I have a license in Psychology which allows me to give practical advice to my students to approach the parts and help them best to fight their problems. I also do tutoring so I am used to working with children with whom I have very good contact. So I understand very well their ways of reasoning. See you soon !

Alexandre
Professional coach gives chess course online
I work as follows: We discuss your expectations, your characteristics, what you think are your weaknesses, your strengths etc. If it is possible, you pass me what you think are your most interesting games, victories or defeats, so that I can better understand your "chess personality", but also come back with you on the critical moments of the parties. In addition to the games, competitions on the internet are a great source of information for me! The objective is that after the first session, I will be able to send you a work plan, a road map that we will follow during our collaboration. Everything we study together, I can put it online or send it to you by email according to your convenience.
