Aurelio - Geneva, Switzerland$42
Trusted teacher: FIDE Master of Chess (part of the Swiss National) gives chess courses at all levels and all ages. My goal is to teach you how to play better and improve your concentration with this old game. The course is divided into three parts: A theoretical part where I show you typical tactical topics, then the student solves exercises and finally we play games.
Trusted teacher: 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.

In addition to the games, competitions on the internet are a great source of information for me!

Everything we study together, I can put it online or send it to you by email according to your convenience.

I always approach every student indivudually. With new students we usually start by playing a few games and talking. We get to know each other, I can see your chess level and identify your weak areas etc... Later we usually set a goal --> It can be reaching 1800 elo online / achiving some fide rating / improving positional play / or any other goal. During the sessions we can analyze your games / we can learn a new opening / improve the middlegame or endgame... again it's individual and depends on your goal and your weak areas. I have very clear style of teaching chess. I'm fluent in English. Additionaly I have a large database of educational chess materials (created by myself) that I will share for free with my students.
Trusted teacher: Hi, my name is Gabriel. I'm the head coach of the chess team of the National University of Mexico (UNAM) since 2010. I speak fluent English as I lived six years in Oxford, England, when I was a child and I practice it since then. With the UNAM's team I have obtained the following titles: National Women's Championship: 2014, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019 National Men's Championship: 2018, 2019 Absolute National Championship: 2018, 2019 Panamerican 2013 in Durango: silver medal I also have extensive experience with players of all ages and levels. Here is a list of the places where I have worked: - UNAM's Children's Chess Program since 2012. - Private schools. - CEDAT School for gifted children. - Private sports and social clubs. - Homeschoolers - Personal chess coach since 2005. My peak rating is 2165 FIDE ELO, which would be equivalent to the USCF National Master level, although really my chess dedication has been focused on teaching.

Hi! I am Flavia and I come from Cuba, but I am living in Spain now. Chess has been part of my life since I was 8 years old. I graduated from the University of Havana as a translator and interpreter in English and Italian languages. I love playing sports and traveling. I have been coaching chess for years. My hours are flexible, and I adapt to my students' needs. I am charismatic and cheerful. My passion for chess started when I was 8 years old, and it was my dad who taught me to play. I am a competitive athlete, I started out wanting to beat a friend, then a match, a championship and that's how my love for this sport grew. I was a provincial and national youth champion for several years in a row. I got second place in the 2012 Pan American U-20 Championship. Also, I got 10th place in the 2011 World Youth Chess Championship in Brazil. I became a FIDE Master at 15 and I have an International Master standard. My highest FIDE rating was 2190. Currently, I only teach, and I love sharing my passion for chess with the students. My teaching methodology is inspired and based on concepts developed by GM Igor Smirnov. I work on expanding Smirnov’s approach to chess by focusing on strengthening and empowering the student’s logical thought process which will allow the student to analyze any position and execute the best possible plans and moves. I like to guide the student in their learning process/path. I believe it is better to study a book thoroughly and assimilate it well than to study 100 poorly. I teach openings in a dynamic and practical way. I am more interested in guiding the student in understanding the logic, plan and idea behind each move rather than drowning them in sole theory. I help the student assimilate basic endgames and the typical plans used in these. My current teaching platforms are lichess and Skype.
Trusted teacher: Testimonies --------- In just 5 and 1/2 days in February, 2022, I was beginning to transform almost roughly half a secondary school's children !

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 !

Trusted teacher: I propose to give lessons from beginner level up to 1800 level, for all ages (from 6 or 7 years old) and whatever your goal (beat a friend, his dad or become a competitor) . I have particularly a very good contact with children and teenagers. The idea is to learn without worrying, in complete relaxation. Course schedule: The lessons take place by Skype, via the sharing of my screen (and the diagrams that I select). Sometimes we will have to do some exercises on Liches to make sure that the concepts have been understood. The Internet has the advantage of efficiency, the diagrams being already ready, it even goes faster than live and I could see that this support does not prevent the creation of human links. However, for the students of the Orleans conurbation, I can with great pleasure welcome you to my home. All my lessons are prepared with great care and are truly individualized. On each theme, the lessons are therefore adapted to the level and objectives of the student. Depending on the wishes of the students as well as their strengths and weaknesses, I propose to address the following aspects: - The openings : I make sure that my students have acquired the essential principles of openness (rapid development, takeover of the center, securing the king). Then, after studying the student's play style (rather positional or more attacking), we build, adapt or deepen his repertoire of openings. The idea is as much to understand the spirit of an opening as to know long variants by heart. After learning the theoretical basics, we will see the games played by the best players practicing your favorite openings of my student. - Party backgrounds: It is mainly about building plans. A chess player should think of himself as the general of an army. And no general shows up on the battlefield without a well-established plan, under penalty of stinging defeat! For this, we can also look at the different schemas and attacks of the opponent's weaknesses (weaknesses of the king or weakness of the pawn structure). Beyond the tactical sacrifices immediately winning the game, we may also be led to see when to sacrifice equipment to develop a sustainable initiative. We will also sometimes have to study some recurring pawn structures in the openings made by my students and how to maneuver based on that. - The finals It is sometimes a bit tedious but it is an essential factor of progression. The Russians, who dominated chess for decades, used to start by studying the finals. It is rather what I recommend. This is all the more essential since very often at the end of the game, time is short and fatigue begins to be felt. Knowledge of the most classic final patterns therefore allows you to earn many half points. - Analysis of your games Learning from mistakes is a great way to progress. We will therefore engage in this exercise whenever necessary. - Training plan Often when you want to progress you don't know where to start. I therefore propose an hour or two of lessons devoted to how to maximize the time spent studying chess. - Psychological aspects of the game How to rebound after a defeat? How not to ignite too much after a series of victories? How to manage the pressure of competition? How to manage your time in the different cadences? How to prepare against an adversary that we know and that scares us? Here are some of the questions that this module will answer (non-exhaustive list). Do not hesitate to contact me, I am at your disposal for more information!
Nathan - Paris, France$31
Trusted teacher: Online chess course - all levels (Zoom/Skype) This course is intended for all players from beginner to competitive club player. Here is my approach, but you can also focus on a very specific subject. I adapt to your request, while proposing methods tailored to you. Thus, I will be able to accompany you to reach your goals. My approach: My approach is oriented towards a deep understanding of the game: - practice (playing games but also playing specific positions) - post-mortem analysis (of games played) - the great classic games (but also current ones) - targeting the gaps (this is where the progress is most felt) The best way to progress in chess is to accumulate experience by playing regularly, and by analyzing your games. Also, you know the Confucian proverb: "You must learn from the mistakes of others. You will never live long enough to make them all yourself." We will study all phases of the game (openings, strategy and endgames), focusing on your main areas of improvement. See you on the chessboard!
