There are certain types of mates, particularly with a queen.Support mates uses a queen and defender.(a king,bishop,knight,and pawn)It`s easy but don`t let the opponent get your queen in the endgame.The 2 rooks mate cover the last 2 files or ranks while the king and rook mate takes some time.The 2 bishops mate and king+ both minor pieces(bishop and knight) are hard. The smothered mate and 2 knights+ king(i`ve seen that) are a bit harder. Those are some basic mates except the last few mates.
