All Skill Levels
I'm back! After a couple months of a break, I'm going back into chess full force. That being said I'm looking for 3-5 more students. I'm offering a free trial hour to anyone that might be interested.
About me: I am a qualified coach, with over 200 hours of individual coaching/tutoring experience. I'm currently very competitive and am improving at a high rate. However, what really makes me different is my level of involvement. On my own time, I will look through every game of yours that I can get my hands on, from 1 minute bullet to 6 hour tournament games to maximize the value of the actual lessons.
My Ideal Student: It really comes down to motivation. I want someone who will spend a good deal of time playing/practicing beyond just our lessons. Someone that really enjoys playing, and wants to improve. Competing in tournaments is a plus, but not required.
My Teaching Philosophy: I like to spend the first lesson really getting a sense of your strengths/weaknesses. From there I come up with a personalized lesson plan for both things you can do on your own, and things we work on together. I really care about maximizing your improvement when you're practicing on your own, and reserve our lessons for more detailed instruction and checking in on how you're improving. However if there's something you want to do/practice, that always takes priority.
