1. Q: What software do you use to conduct your lessons and what I need to have to start having lessons with you?
A: I use Skype and different platforms such as chess.com, ICC (chessclub.com), and ChessBase. You just need to have Skype account and add me to your list of contacts. My Skype username is muscleman-bukh.
2. Q: What is your approach to coaching and what we will be studying?
A: After a quick test of your level, which includes two short blitz games, I will tell you what major weaknesses you have. Then, we will cover briefly all topics you struggle with during our first lesson. After the first lesson, we will go into greater details and will improve your openings, tactics, and endgame skills.
3. Q: What is the method of payment and do you have any discounts?
A: I accept payments through PayPal. My PayPal account is firstname.lastname@example.org. Payments should be made using this email address prior to the beginning of the lesson. You may notice that I charge $75/1 hour, and I make a discount in case of prepayment for 5 lessons or 10 lessons at once. In both cases, you save $40 and $105, respectively.
4. Q: I would like to add 200-300 points to my rating within a year. Is that possible after having one hour of coaching with you every week?
A: If you are below 1700, then the answer is yes. Also, you have to be dedicated and spend at least several hours on chess weekly on your own. If you are above 1700, a realistic goal will be 100 or 150 points within a year, taking into consideration regular weekly trainings with me and on your own.
5. Q: Can I call you and inquire more about the details of your lessons?
A: Yes, absolutely! You might call me at
