I was going to teach them in 10 lessons.
About 1 hour lessons.
I would teach them more then how the pieces move and the rules.
I would also teach them castling, pins, absolute pin, deflection,en passant,smothered mate,discovered attack,discovered check,sacrifice,pawn storm,Interfernce,exchange,double check,undermining,overloads and windmills.
Types of forks
knight forks (includes royal fork), bishop forks,pawn forks,queen forks, rook forks, king forks.
Types of skewers
skewer, absolute skewer
I meant teach someone HOW TO PLAY CORRECTLY, not how the pieces move and only some of the most important rules.
You don't have a clue as to what near and distant oppositon, the square of the pawn, the Lucena Position, basic checkmates, etc are do you?
BUT since "any chess play" (sic) is qualified to teach chess (according to you) just go ahead and charge whatever the market will bear. Here's something else for you to ignore: http://www.businessethics.net/M/market_will_bear.htm
I said to teach someone how to play chess. That means teach someone that does not know how to play. Any chess play is qualified to do so.
Nothing, because you aren't that qualified (a wild guess on my part by looking at your ratings here). If you know off the top of your head what (and who) all of the following are then I apologize: near and distant oppositon, the square of the pawn, the Lucena Position, how triple repetition draws work, what all the "basic checkmates" are, the 50 move rule, Fred Reinfeld, Emanuel Lasker, and Jeremy Silman.
BTW H G Wells came up with a way to teach chess that is infinitely superior to the terrible way 99% of us learned how (inc me) ie, by being taught the names of the pieces, how they move, some of the most important rules of play and nothing whatsoever about anything mentioned in my 1st paragraph. AND, he didn't even care for chess!
