Chess lessons for all level players. English and Spanish. Chess Tutor

Are you trying to level up quickly to beat your peers in chess? You just found recently the game exciting and wanna learn more about it? Or are you preparing for a company or informal/formal chess tournament?

I've got your back. With my personalized training, you will be able to improve your game in a few weeks. I will provide you with the tactics, strategies, openings, material, and a training plan so you can study on your own and become a better player in no time.

What is in the training lessons:
- Measure of your current level
- Finding your playing style
- Personalized training plan (openings, middle game, end game, tactics, strategy, time management)
- Level up your skill and depth of thought (being able to think many moves beyond your opponent)
- If you want to improve your blitz/bullet level I can also help you with that!

About me:
As a seasoned chess player with over 15 years of experience, I have honed my skills and competed in various international tournaments, showcasing my love for the game. However, my passion for chess has transcended competition, and in 2018, I made the decision to transition into a career as a professional chess tutor. Now, I find great joy in sharing the intricacies and beauty of chess with my students, and helping them to develop their own strategies and techniques. It's incredibly fulfilling to see my students grow in their understanding of the game and to watch their progress over time.

We can even try an online lesson if you don't want to spend time commuting. I know how difficult is to find the right mentor and therefore I offer you this option to help you.

Looking forward to meeting you and helping you improve your chess skills soon.
Talk to you soon,
Leo

Maurice
IB Diploma - IGCSE and MYP Mathematics, Mathematics-Economics teacher: professional support
Are you looking for support for your child? Does your child have difficulties following the subject matter of the IB Diploma or Abitur and feels overwhelmed? Your reason for reading: Ever since I was born, my curiosity has never been contained - I was always looking for new challenges and as soon as something interested me, I wanted to know everything about it, no matter how long it took. Among my friends and colleagues, I am known for familiarizing myself with new topics in a very short time and developing a profound understanding The key to success: Education. In my opinion, free education is the highest and most valuable asset we have and we should do everything we can to continuously educate ourselves. At this point, it would be wrong to say that "unfortunately" everyone is knitted differently. Thank God this is exactly the case and this is where the biggest problem in our society begins. Even in the early years we are not optimally encouraged. Parents try their best to give their children the best education, but they and the teachers are often overwhelmed by the situation at school. Of course, this is not entirely the fault of the teachers. Imagine supporting 30 children individually in 90 minutes. Effectively this means 3 minutes for each child and now they see your own daughter or son trying to explain a complex task in that time - let's be honest! Here it quickly becomes clear that this is not only too little time for your child, we would also fail because of it. Always looking for self-optimization: Self-optimization has rarely been worth as much as it is today. I teach students from all walks of life and this is what I love about my job and why I ended up becoming a personal coach. Inflation does not only exist in the economy, knowledge is also inflationary in education. Once we stop and continue to educate, over time our level of knowledge becomes less valuable. So we have to do something to educate ourselves. Achieve goals: My goal is to give your daughter or son the best possible education in exactly the subject where most people fail - mathematics. It doesn't matter whether it's in the German Abitur or in the International Baccalaureate (IB Diploma), mathematics is a big hurdle for most people. My goal is to make this hurdle easier for your child. This includes not only dryly explaining tasks - no, but restoring fun and motivation. Nobody wants to study for something where they have the feeling of standing in front of a wall and only understand the train station. In the end, I want your child to be prepared with a deeper understanding and to lose the fear of difficult tasks. For this, I optimize learning techniques, fill in gaps, and see where your child's individual goal is. In the end, your child should go to my lessons in a tailor-made way and optimally supported. Of course, I'm not a silver bullet and development varies from student to student, but my personal aim is to offer you premium service clothing that is otherwise rarely found on the market. Thank you for your interest Did you know? On average, a reader decides within the first few seconds whether to read a text to the end. Best regards, Yves Maurice

Steve
Tutoring in Physics and Mathematics for Secondary School Students grades 7-12 and University Prep
My tutoring sessions are for those students who either feel they are struggling in physics or maths, or feel they could benefit from some extra one-on-one practice. Specifically I have experience tutoring and teaching students in secondary education grades 7-12 in the IB Diploma Program, German Gymnasium curriculum, and American curricula, as well as helping students prepare for university or those students struggling with their first year at university. I have training in differentiating between students based on their age and ability so we can customize our lessons based on your wants and needs. I may approach a problem and solution in one way, but can easily transition between approaches to understand what works best for the learner. Assigning homework is up to the discretion of the student who may already feel overwhelmed from the homework they get at school.

Santiago
Conversational virtual classes in English for young people and adults
Hi, My name is Santiago and I am offering individual and personalized virtual English classes to improve both your oral and written communication. The main focus of my classes is on developing English language communication in a fluid and structured way, whether to prepare for international exams, including the TOEFL and the FCE, or to be able to communicate adequately in the professional field, or to reinforce and maintain prior knowledge of this language. I have a degree, graduated from Florida Gulf Coast University in the USA. Having learned English since I was a child at the Ivy Thomas Memorial School and lived for a year and a half in Thailand, followed by 4 years in the USA, I acquired great knowledge and fluency in the English language. In Thailand I spent a year and a half studying communication arts and this helped me prepare for my studies in the US I had several communication classes, learning techniques on how to speak better using not only our words, but also our body to help us speak in a way more natural, calm and without getting nervous if we get stuck or forget what we wanted to say. During my career in the US I was constantly writing essays for my classes, in addition to having to present projects in front of my teachers and classmates. At the same time, I was working at university and after graduating I worked for a year, mainly having long conversations on the phone with people from all over the country. Nowadays the ability to communicate in English is essential and I will prepare you so that you can meet your objectives. It could be studying abroad, going to live in an English-speaking country, improving communication in the professional field or practicing so as not to lose the level previously acquired. If what you are looking for is to improve your knowledge of the English language, I am going to help you. My methodology is simple. Each person is different and I adapt the content of my classes to the needs and interests of my students. We all learn in different ways and at different times, that is why I design my classes individually.
