How does a coach do things for you?
Not sure if you meant what instead of how ... but in both cases ... they do a lot of things, though the really essential ones are:
- Offer an expert (relative to your present skill level) opinion on what are the big mistakes you are still making with your chess (usually going over all of your recent losses + wins) and what you can do to correct them.
- Help you prioritize what to study/work on and encourage + monitor your progress.
- Helps do more to explain (so that can clearly understand) the nuances behind actual positions than the +0.56 score that your fancy engine + software coughs up :)
