    Chess lessons - Learn how to play and improve your chess!

    Why you should study chess
    Chess training and practice support the development of higher-order thinking skills—like problem-solving, decision making, critical thinking, planning, and even creative thinking. Chess training and practice also help improve general cognitive ability and scholastic achievement—especially in mathematics.

    In addition, it reinforces effective attributes such as patience, prudence, and perseverance. Two prominent virtues of chess are fairness and honesty. The international chess community promotes civil behavior and respect for the opponent but punishes players found to have cheated. Chess is a civil game with an ethical code that predisposes players to play respectfully with other individuals.

    Many students, including those with disabilities, can benefit educationally and psychologically from chess training.
    Online chess training and online chess play have the potential for the betterment of students during and after the present coronavirus pandemic.


    About me:
    My name is Martín, I’m 39 years old and I´ve been teaching chess for the last 20 years. I’m a FIDE ranked player.
    I’ve played chess for 30 years now. Currently, I’m a chess instructor and trainer, with 15 regular students in Argentina and the rest of the world. The lessons are via Zoom and every so often we have both spontaneous and scheduled online tournaments among my students with great rewards.
    In 1998 I won the sub-20 Buenos Aires Chess Championship (I was 15 years old by then). I’ve also compete in several tournaments, like FIDE World Amateur Championship in 2017, Italy.
    I’ve played several tournaments along with my career (even draw a game with Judith Polgar back in Argentina)

    About the lessons:
    In every class, you’ll be sharing a Zoom meeting with me and my partner, who´s also a teacher and English speaker. He’ll be translating the entire lesson.
    If by any chance you can´t make it to the lesson, we can re-schedule it, no problem at all whatsoever. Every lesson you take will be recorded, and after we finished it, I’ll send it to you by e-mail so you can revisit it whenever you want.

    Maths Complete Supervision: Courses and Exercises Evaluations, all levels
    Mathematics, a discipline that requires a lot of skill and rigor from an early age, is our focal point par excellence for forging scientists. Likewise the physical sciences which are the applications of the first gray of the sciences. I am an experienced Mathematics teacher in middle and secondary education with more than 10 years of experience. I have taken up several challenges with students losing their bearings or lacking self-confidence with distance school supervision. Teaching science is a profession of passion, a burden that is very unpassionate to us. I am very available and very attached to the smiles of a student and his parents filled with joy by satisfaction. At your disposal to take up major challenges. Thank you

    Cryptocurrency investing for beginners (from level 0)
    Investing in cryptocurrencies (Bitcoin, Ethereum etc) is an activity that can allow you to have extra income every month with very little time invested in it (you can easily do it just a few days a month, and after working hours) However, the amount of information online on how to start this activity can be overwhelming and confusing. Since I have been investing in crypto for 5 years, and achieved financial freedom through it, I can show you the basics and also the systems I constantly use to create a long-term profitable portfolio, while getting weekly, compounded, passive income in the meanwhile. Just some of the topics we'll cover, that we'll give you confidence on your long-term investments: - What is Bitcoin? - What is the blockchain? - What is Ethereum? - Other key cryptocurrencies - Some examples - Where can i learn more on my own (top non-biased media resources i used for the last 5 years)? - Where can i buy and sell cryptocurrencies? - Why does Bitcoin go up massively every 4 years? - How does the market REALLY work? - - How can I create a long-term portfolio with just a little bit of time invested every week? (explained step-by-step) - When should i buy and sell my cryptocurrencies? (personal opinion) Also, if you have ANY doubts in between classes, i will give you my contact details and reply to you within 24h Give it a try and I promise you will love it :) *The Services Offered are NOT Financial Advice*

    Maths and Computer science Tutoring/ Test preparation
    Hello! My name is Christopher and I am currently studying Computer science at TU Delft. I am able to tutor in both Maths and Computer Science at any elementary or High school level and have experience teaching a range of syllabus. Qualifications: - A levels: -A* in Maths - A* in Computer Science - A* in Music - Certified Microsoft Innovative Educator Experience: ZVEZA PRIJATELJEV MLADINE LJUBLJANA (ASSOCIATION FOR FRIENDS OF YOUTH) ZPM is an association in Slovenia that aims to help underprivileged children in many different ways including food packets, after-school clubs, and tutoring. I originally started as a volunteer in 2016 and since then I have helped countless students with their school work; most commonly in Maths but also other subjects like Physics, English, and Chemistry. Later my position developed into employment where I would run after school clubs to help the children build confidence and talk about their emotions, make fun programs for summer camps, and of course, I continued with tutoring many children GIRLS DO CODE Girls Do Code is an organization in Slovenia that aims to get more women into STEM, they believe that this interest has to start in childhood and therefore they offer lessons in Computer Science to over 300 girls. This cause was something that I thought was incredibly important and so I became a volunteer for their organization. This entailed teaching a group of 10 girls the basics of Computer Science in a fun and creative way and was a very rewarding experience. Through my training for Girls Do Code, I was certified by Microsoft as an Innovative Educator. I currently work as a Maths teaching assistant at an international school in the Netherlands where I work with children struggling with maths in small groups. Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions!

    Introduction to Japanese: The Kana booster (hiragana & katakana)
    こ ん に ち は (Hello) That's it you decided to seriously learn Japanese to get closer to your goal? How to learn a new language when you have passed the stage of childhood? Do you fear oblivion or retrogression? When you learn the Japanese alphabet in high school or university, it takes between 3 to 6 months to anchor the learning of hiragana and katakana. I know this frustration of not going fast enough to then be able to read it, write it, understand it and speak it! Forget the romaji which are a real obstacle to learning Japanese even if I understand that it is a comfortable benchmark for learners. I created "the Kana booster" to support you in your first steps towards the Japanese language: - Discovery of Japanese characters - Pronunciation of the alphabet - Introduction to the writing system - Maintenance of the syllabary thanks to memorization - Kana challenge I had to learn hiragana like you in several months. On the other hand for the katakana, I only had 15 days to memorize them before my Japanese school year! This is why I have compiled my knowledge and know-how for you! I have my little tips and my personal methods so that you can acquire the basics to pursue your passion! *Who should attend ?* Pure beginners or those who need to refresh their memories or people who have lost their motivation as well as those who want to start / start again on good foundations! * How does the course actually work? * In 30 minutes we dynamically do the alphabet line by line. A real exchange between the learner and me. I reveal the errors and correct them. I give keys on the traps to avoid. We see the alphabet in all its forms in different approaches. Finally we take stock at the end of the lesson. * And what about my methodology? * With 6 years of language teaching with a different learner profile and around the world, then after working in South Korea and Japan with companies that prioritize education, I developed my vision and the tools necessary for the proper development of the learning of a foreign language for non-Aboriginal people. Being a teacher / student, I test myself what I offer. it allows me to identify the strengths and weaknesses of my media in order to improve the content and aim for excellence. For learning this course is suitable for young and old, I speak French, English and Japanese fluently so I can teach the course in these languages. * What does my rate include? * "Kana's booster" is at its launch price. This is a "boost" course to help you learn faster and save you time! Once mastered, you can easily assimilate other notions of the Japanese language and be one step ahead of others. By choosing me, you can always be in contact with me and ask me questions about your problems (even outside the course) Send a course request and let's practice together! Amandine 愛 満 多 よ り
