New to Chess ( <1000), Beginner (1000-1400), Tournament Level (1400-1800)
I have experience coaching players who are beginners, and players with up to a 1800 FIDE rating. I offer lessons to any one with in the range of my
expertise for a reasonable price.
There are a couple of reasons a beginner and a tournament level player(1400-1800) should choose a experienced player as there coach over a top titled player.
GM's, I remember well the difficulty I experienced two years ago braking the 1500 barrier. Therefor, I can relate to your chess understanding level, and what is blocking you right now from taking your chess game to the next level. I have learned in the past two years that if I decide to do some thing the sky is the limit I want you to feel the same! My work in the previous two years has caused a positive steady growth to my rating. Remember I talked about the 1500 barrier? well right now two years later my new barrier is 2100 FIDE, where was I a year ago? Exactly where you are standing now, I am committed to you as your coach to help you brake that barrier and take your game to the next level!
2)Most chess coaches are teaching their students as a side job, and therefor are tied down to there daily commitments.I am a well established chess coach, and therefor almost always available for giving advise and analysing your games.
I n addition chess, and chess coaching both being Serious passions of mine, results in cheaper prices for you.
3)I charge only what is legitimate for the work I do and offer a wide range of options for you to choose from.

VIP services are offered exclusively to "Long Term" students, whith whom a honest partnership has bean created.
VIP Tactics Trainer Course: The course includes a 2 hour lesson once a week for a period of a month. The goal of the course is simple- to help you improve your tactical understanding and game play as much as possible. Every one has there own ceiling, I want to get you to your max! Max of tactical understanding, max of pattern recognition, and max use of logic, wile facing a seemingly impossible problem. The first 2 hour lesson's goal is to identify what types of tactical patterns are harder for you to see.The next two 2 hour lessons include solving series of problems. With a step by step guidance, you can be sure to walk through the problems with ease.The problems are not organised in a thematic order, therefore solving them requires pattern recognition.
The method of going through the problems one by one, and solving them together with me, wile using a logical thought process to fined and evaluate candidate moves, is, you might say, the reason the course has bean so effective. Afterwards, the student can simply apply the same methods and do the same thing, on his own. The last 2 hour lesson concluding the course includes super 2000-2300 TT rating problems. Approaching the tactical problems in a specific logical and organised manner is the key. That is exactly what you will be doing, once the course is over.
VIP Customed Studying plan: I send the student, a custome made, 3 month length studying routine and training plan, by email. The training plan, is based on the students specific long term goals, and targets his weaker points. Before the training plan is built, I review the students recent games stored on chess.com in order to identify his weaker points and mistake patterns.In addition a 90 min, free conversation is scheduled on skype , in which a list of short term and long term goals is conducted. Once done, I build a step by step, clear cut training plan. The students receives:
1)A 3 month length studying& training plan, organised in a chart.
2)A list of recommended books, based on the students goals, and weaker areas.
3)Full Q&A support by email.
