How to mate with two knights against king and a pawn?

What is the most difficult endgame?I haven't faced this question many times in my class where i teach players upto 1800 rating.However,some have asked me this and I have decided to go with the 2 knights checkmate where your opponent has a pawn.This is also called the "Haley's Comet"endgame because of its rare occurence.By the way,this mating pattern only occurs if your opponent has a pawn in the center.Otherwise,it is a dead draw because 2  knights cannot mate a LONE king.

THAT's THE DIFFERENCE.If you are interested in learning the technique do make sure to watch this tutorial video.
