    Chess: professional training, all levels, any age. Reach your goals!

    Hi, my name is Gabriel. I'm the head coach of the chess team of the National University of Mexico (UNAM) since 2010. I speak fluent English as I lived six years in Oxford, England, when I was a child and I practice it since then.

    With the UNAM's team I have obtained the following titles:
    National Women's Championship: 2014, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019
    National Men's Championship: 2018, 2019
    Absolute National Championship: 2018, 2019
    Panamerican 2013 in Durango: silver medal

    I also have extensive experience with players of all ages and levels. Here is a list of the places where I have worked:
    - UNAM's Children's Chess Program since 2012.
    - Private schools.
    - CEDAT School for gifted children.
    - Private sports and social clubs.
    - Homeschoolers
    - Personal chess coach since 2005.

    My peak rating is 2165 FIDE ELO, which would be equivalent to the USCF National Master level, although really my chess dedication has been focused on teaching.
    I would love to help you learn chess or improve your game to reach competitive levels. It does not matter your degree of experience, your level of play, or your age.

    I am attentive to any questions you may have.
    Greeting and I wish you success!

The lessons are mostly targeted at begginers and intermidiate level players. Kids and adult imrpovers are welcome alike!

    Camilo
    Chess classes that are fun and insightful. (1on 1 course)
    My name Is Camilo and I am an Experienced international chess player that speaks English, French, and Spanish. I am a 1700+ rated chess player that has participated in clubs and tournaments throughout my career with 5 years of tutoring experience. Being trilingual has allowed me to teach people from all over the world. I first began by helping children with their French and Spanish as well as their organizational skills. However, I ended up gravitating toward my passion which is chess. I have various courses and modules prepared for each session. I also adapt very well to the level of experience of each student and what their goals are. Over three years I have developed a syllabus for my students, which includes: lesson 1 Chess Board and Pawn movement, Lesson 2 Review of Pawns, Lesson 3 The Bishops, Lesson 4 the Rooks, lesson 5 the Knights and the Queen, Lesson 6 the King and Checkmate, Lesson 7 Pawn Promotion and Stalemate, lesson 8 Castling, Lesson 9 Drawn games, lesson 10 Checkmate, Lesson 11 opening principles, and the Lesson 12 forking. This method has shown to help all of my students but as I said before I am happy and very capable of adapting to each student. This, of course, means that for my more advanced students I have a different syllabus for them more advanced lessons like for example “Pinning”. I also always prepare a puzzle for each session to challenge my students in various ways. I love tutoring because I am still young and therefore tend to develop great relationships with my students. Chess is of course my passion so joining both is a dream of mine. I tend to teach younger students from ages 6-18 but don't mind other age groups. I worked with children that went to my old school which is the Lycee Francais de New York. Feel free to contact me at any time, I will really try my best to work with your schedule. I hope you will give me an opportunity to help you because this is truly an amazing game!
