Private chess lessons for beginner and intermediate level
Chess is something amazing!! Or, as an Indian proverb says, it's a lake where a mosquito can drink and an elephant can swim. It doesn't matter if you don't know anything about this subject and you want to get into it or if you already know how to play and you want to master your skills, I can help you with that. It's scientifically proven that chess helps you to develop and strengthen many aptitudes such as: efficient planning, creativity, self-criticism, discipline, logical reasoning, problem solving and concentration. That's why playing chess is so good for mental health or children and adults. But also, and even more important, it's fun!! I've been playing chess since I was 5 years old, competing at an international level and being awarded many times. I've also given chess lessons since I was 15 until now, when I'm 24. With my classes, you'll learn all the strategies and tactics while focusing in the three parts of a chess game: the opening, the middle game and the endgame.

Antoine
chess bear from 3 years old with an experienced teacher former young champion
|| Career || I was passionate about chess from the age of 5. I took classes all my youth and I was vice-champion of Paris under 12 years. I evolved for many years in the most prestigious French club: Lutèce Chess. I took classes with the International Grand Masters Alberto David, Marie Sebag and Jean-Luc Chabanon. I stopped the competition at the age of 14 with an elo of 1800 before returning to it a few years ago. I am 23 years old and am studying business and strategy at the Sorbonne. My teaching is built on years of experience in terms of practice and courses given to students with varied profiles. Methodology || || I quickly identify the student's level and strengths and weaknesses. A chess game takes place in 3 phases that I propose to study differently: _ Opening: I help my student at first to integrate the concepts of the opening. In a second time we can build a theoretical repertoire on the first 5-10 moves of a chess game. I have a wide knowledge of openings and I can prepare courses on specific points according to requests. _ The game environment: This will involve working from tactical exercises to develop intuition, computing power and creativity. We can also study the strategy, how to find a plan. _ The final: A multitude of final diagrams are possible. It is essential to study them. All my classes are prepared and personalized. The goal of each course will be to focus on 3-4 key concepts that will be reviewed at the next court to verify that they are acquired. I also analyze the games played by my student to develop his game. I adapt my pedagogy, I do it very differently with my 3 year old students and my adult students. Finally, I speak English fluently and can teach in this language. || Course by webcam || I also give several courses by Skype, at lower rates. I have a headset with excellent sound quality (Sennheiser PXC 550) and a good mac webcam. Thanks to Lichess, Chessbase or another software it is easy to share or play positions with my student. The tools are very powerful and the quality of a distance chess course is the same as for a physical class.

Learn chess games, Learn Chess!
The game of chess pits two players on either side of a board or apron called chessboard composed of sixty-four light and dark squares named the white squares and the black squares. The players take turns moving one of their sixteen pieces (or two pieces in case of castling), clear for the camp of the whites, dark for the camp of the blacks. Each player has at the start a king, a lady, two towers, two madmen, two riders and eight pawns. The goal of the game is to inflict a dull check on the opponent, a situation in which the king of a player is engaged without being able to remedy it.

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.
