Group chess lessons with Lea, learning and fun guaranteed ! (3 students)
When I was younger, I enrolled in all the chess lessons that my elementary school offered. Quickly, I ranked in the top 3 in Quebec and Canada (top 1 the last two years that I played!), Until the age of 15, when I stopped playing. I now want to pass on my knowledge in this wonderful game! We will correct the assignment given at the end of the previous lesson, then we will see new material in each lesson. I will answer all the student's questions and give them an assignment (optional but recommended) at the end of the course.

Beginner chess lessons at 1800 elo at home or by webcam
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!

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.

Coaching & Strategic Career Planning - A market-oriented approach
It is an interdisciplinary course that teaches students how the strategic management methodologies applied in the processes of determining the visions of businesses, institutions, and even states and reaching that vision can be adapted to career planning and why career planning is systematic research, planning, and continuous development process. The course aims to • contribute to the development of continuous research and development awareness, based on the concepts of knowledge-oriented decision-making in career planning processes, increasing competitiveness, minimizing information asymmetry and missed opportunity cost, • contribute to students' internalization of why a career is a process that should be planned, being aware of basic micro and macroeconomic conditions, • introduce the strategic analysis methods that students can use in transforming their career planning processes into critical thinking, research, and application processes, and making them apply with exemplary studies, • contribute to the development of market-oriented and proactive career planning awareness in students, • ensure that students develop an interdisciplinary (marketing communication, organizational behavior, and strategic management) perspective on career planning, • scientifically explain the importance of strong social capital (all kinds of contributions arising from the effective use of social networks) with social networking methodologies and to explain practically how social capital can be used systematically and effectively in career planning processes.
