Greetings everyone @ chess.com,
I've been meaning to join an online chess training site or enroll in online chess coaching for some time. The problem is that there's quite a few of them and I'm not too sure which I should follow. Chess.com has Chess Mentor. It seems quite good, but it's kinda pricey. Chess magnet school seems a bargain, but I'm wondering whether I would need something a bit more substaintial. (i've used the trial period) I've also noticed that IM Andrew Martin runs his own chess online training school, and google keeps showing another link
which is another training site.
Ahh... there's just so many. =( Anyone has any thoughts on this?
I personally use both the chess magnet school and the chess mentor here.However I have seen over 30 webistes that offer this kind of training.
Chess mentor helps with building intuition in players after awhile of using it and will actually let you glimpse into the masters thinking process in some courses.and at 100 dollers a year its really not that expensive.I have also noticed I tend to use more of the patterns that are taught here and it helps fill in some gaps in my chess knowledge that I didn't know I had compared to some other sites that didn't even teach the baic precursors to this knowledge.
Chess magnet school is for those with a cast iorn will to learn and don't mind spending several hours studying intensely to grasp a point.With the learning process of problem then lesson though I have burned the lessons it teaches into the depths of my mind to the point where I wont forget them easily even under high stress situations.This school teaches under harder strict calculation rather than just good intuition built in.Not to mention its less forgiving.
between the 2 i have enjoyed a through chess expierence and after a year worth of training under both of them loosely due to work scheduling I have seen a rating boost of about 800pts.U.S.C.F.
You can also try my website http://www.rkcschoolchess.com
I am providing online chess coaching at reasonable rates.
yes, the opportunities for online tutoring are quite overwhelming. In best Monty Python "Four Yorkshiremen" style: when I were a lad, we were so poor we were lucky to have a strong chess player at t'local club; you had a club, we had to make do with toilet rolls as pieces on the cobbled stones; cobbled stones...? etc.
It's a question of money and what you want to pay for. chess.com, ICC and playchess.com all have regular shows by titled players and respected coaches. The more personal coaching, though? I like Valeri Lilov, a Bulgarian 2400+ FM, who has a regular show on playchess. He also can give lessons via his website.
We offer online chess coaching for advanced and intermediate level players. Training is given by I.M. Norm holder - Manthan Chokshi - FIDE 2194 with experience of over 25 years in International chess. Also visit our facebook page for interesting chess puzzles and tips.
Fritz program is the best coach.
Fritz? A computer? This shouldn't even be considered. A computer can teach you how to play chess like a robot, but not like a human. They won't offer the interactive student-teacher approach unlike humans.
It has a coach in it. Emotionless yes. Like Carlsen and Anand
