I have been a Chess Coach since 2016 when I graduated from the University. Currently, the head coach of the Ateneo de Manila University.

Teaching methodology

First, I analyze the games of my students in order to identify the strengths and weaknesses in their game. Based on this, I provide personalized lessons to my students depending on where I believe it is needed most.

To name a few teaching methodologies I use:

- Analysis of the student's games to identify mistakes
- Studying of opening theory
- Doing calculation exercises
- Sparring games with analysis

I keep track of the online rating of my students to see if there is improvement in their games.
