Chess in English or French from a Beginner level to Advanced.

Adapted chess lessons based on the student. These lessons start by a game with me to evaluate knowledge of the game and what would be best to start with to develop strengths and fix mistakes. Je peux aussi faire les lessons en français.
Basic chess knowledge/rules (Value of each piece+development, best moves to start, mistakes in openings, common tactics) will be taught for starting chess players/beginners.
More advanced/strong players will be taught more middle game and endgame theories/practices and focus and fixing their current playing.

I give chess lessons to students wishing to improve their level of chess. I can teach beginner and intermediate students. For beginners, I can teach them basic chess such as how to set up the board, how pieces move and are captured, castling, check and checkmate..... For intermediate students, I can teach them tactics, openings, traps, tricks and mistakes in opening........ What sets me apart from other teachers is that I will teach you a way to learn on your own. A way that you can improve while you are at home from the comfort of your couch.

Chess class for beginners: Learn how to move the pieces and understand basic principles.
Chess is a fun game that starts with the basic rules and moves through the 3 parts of the game: the opening, the middlegame, and the endgame. The focus at first is to teach you how the pieces move, what the goal of the opening is, and how the pieces interact. You will also learn the vocabulary related to chess and chess notation. Tactics are then explored to take advantage of hanging pieces, lack of king safety, space, and tempo. I can also give group classes, contact me if you are a group. The price would be different.
