Grand-Maître, Top 20 French and Coach of the French teams, gives chess lessons from a distance

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
♛ All skill levels are welcome, from the beginner eager to expand their knowledge, to more seasoned players looking to secure coveted chess titles.

● Progress in chess can be long and winding. And without a coach's guidance, bad decisions and the habit of "bad reflexes" become a drag that so many players have known.
That's why when you want to ensure long-term progress, taking the advice of an experienced player will cut you short from others, and encourage you to keep going.

● The goal of the first session together will be to determine with you what is best suited to work. An assessment of your strengths and weaknesses will therefore be made to allow yourself to plan a work program in the short and medium term. Having a clear idea of what we will be working together, and knowing what you can do on your own is essential.

● I can also prepare the study of any area that interests you. The goal being above all that your motivation and your pleasure remain intact.

➜ For the technical aspect, I use Skype to communicate, as well as the Lichess or chesscom interface (two completely free interfaces mainly intended for playing chess online) to share an analysis chessboard. It's very easy to use, and super practical!

So don't hesitate to contact me, and we can directly discuss your situation and your goals :)

MY JOURNEY

Now 29 years old, I had a fairly classic chess apprenticeship with my father at the age of 7. Showing more skill and interest there than judo and tailoring, I pushed open a club door, and it never closed.

I progressed throughout my youth, helped by successive coaches, International Masters or Grand Masters, until I became so in turn

Chess coach for over 10 years. I decided to professionalize myself at the age of 24, once my studies were finished and my title of Grand Master reached.
I am also coach of the young French teams, and preparer of the adult French team for several years.

Also a writer, I have published two opening books (The Modernized Reti, and The Modernized Dutch, at Thinker's Publishing).

I regularly do video series for Chess24, of which I leave you an extract!

Despite my player soul which means that I will never stop, teaching has taken precedence over my practice of chess, and it is a choice that I do not really regret, as the progress of my students can be a source of pleasure and satisfaction.

Have more fun playing chess - Internet courses with a French coach (Français, English, Deutsch)
I strongly believe in learning by understanding, not by pure memorization. We will study all phases of the game (openings, middlegames and endgames), focusing on your main areas of improvement. I will adapt to your request, while offering you tailor-made methods. Thus, I will be able to support you to reach your objectives. I can give lessons via Internet (Skype, Teamviewer, Discord...). See you soon on the chessboard!

Online chess lessons for beginner and intermediate level. Learn the basics and improve quickly!
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 25. 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. Webcam classes are totally feasible for chess both for adults and kids! Thankfully Covid isn't a problem for learning chess. In fact, one of my young students reached the 2020 Under 8 Terefinal of the UK Chess Challenge after only a year of classes!

"Mens Sana in Corpore Sano" - a healthy lifestyle!
My three main areas of expertise (not necessarily in this order): - Languages: I specialize in tutoring Italian and Spanish; my style is to keep students challenged and motivated through simple classes and practical exercises (pronunciation, grammar, vocabulary).. I'm a demanding teacher but will guide you in a fun and interactive way. - Fitness / Triathlon: I coach athletes who want to get fitter and generally incorporate running/cycling into a more healthy lifestyle. I myself am a serious triathlete who has competed in several running and triathlon races (also qualifying for the Ironman World Championship in Hawaii). I focus on technique elements, drills and nutritional aspects too. - Chess: I teach chess to beginners and amateurs up to ELO 1700-1800, working on the tactical and strategic aspects of openings, middle games and endgames.. "chess is life in miniature"! Please contact me if you have any interest in spending more time and energy in any of these 3 areas, and don't forget that "Mens Sana in Corpore Sano" is a good approach to look after yourself :)

Learn to play chess well, all levels, all ages
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.

Léa
Semi-private chess lessons, learning and fun guaranteed!
Passionate about the game of chess since my childhood, I ranked in the top 3 of Quebec and Canada (top 1 the last two years that I played) in the categories of my age for several years in a row, until in the under 16 section, where I stopped competing. I now want to pass on my knowledge in this wonderful game. We will start the lessons with the correction of the homework that I gave in the previous lesson, then we will move forward in the subject. The course is given in a dynamic and fun way! Learning and fun guaranteed!

Olivier
An International Master comes to your home to teach you how to play chess!
Do you often wonder why you can't progress? Because you are looking right to left for information, advice and books to read but you get scattered ... Taking private lessons will save you a lot of time because I went through all these steps, I know what works and what which does not work. So I can explain and quickly teach you the essential concepts and which books to study in order to be effective. Whether you want to compete, beat your grandfather, your little sister or if you want to beat the pretentious boys in your class: this announcement is for you! I started teaching chess professionally in 2003. I have had over 200 students of all ages (5 to 87) and all levels (from beginner to master candidate). I mainly give private lessons but I also give lessons in clubs. I coached several regions for the French youth championships for 4 years. I gave several simultaneous (about 25 players), I even had a chess stand in a shopping center for a whole weekend where I played free games against the public. Recent examples: in November 2019 I had 2 new students (29 and 30 years old) who were beginners. They were both 1150 and 1200 on Lichess. One decided to take 3 hours of lessons per week and the other 4 hours. 1 year later, they arrived at 2000 on the same site! Course of the course: If you compete or if you only play on the internet: We will analyze your games in order to assess your strengths, your weaknesses and see how you perceive the game in order to jointly define a progression plan according to your profile and your availability. I prepare my lessons with care: - A complete and efficient opening repertoire, adapted to your style, with whites as with blacks - Plan construction in the game environment with the study of classic games: dynamic game, positional game, prophylaxis, decision making, calculation of variants and how to win a winning game. - Many tactical exercises - And of course the study of the essential finals in order to master the endgames. When I teach children, my approach is above all fun. I advance at the pace of the student so that he learns the different rules and techniques while having fun! My lessons boil down to this: good humor and efficiency! Presentation : Hello everyone ! My name is Olivier, I learned chess at the age of 8 and I joined a club at 12. At 24 I became a Master of the International Chess Federation (Master FIDE) and at 25 (in 2006) I became an International Master (2400 elo). In France, I am around 200th French player out of 55,000 licensees. Competition level, I played in interclub in all existing divisions (from National 5 to top 12). I have also participated in more than 600 tournaments including many international tournaments. I have won over 40 tournaments whether they are blitz tournaments, rapids or classic paced tournaments. For the rest, I have a license in Psychology which allows me to give practical advice to my students to approach the parts and help them best to fight their problems. I also do tutoring so I am used to working with children with whom I have very good contact. So I understand very well their ways of reasoning. See you soon !

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.
