One user asked: What can i expect to learn from you?
You will learn to think, plan, anticipate opponent's moves, form alternate plans, and find ways to seize advantages or recover from mistakes.
What I do not teach: I do not teach anyone to become a "clone" of my style of play, nor would that be good, as most of my students have the potential to add what they get from me, to their own individual genius to become a much better player than I'll ever be. That is fine with me, and I will not load anyone's wallet for long-term lessons commitment. You study at your own speed, and learn things as your time allows, not dependent on my time or availability to answer your questions, you will be expected to seek answers you can play and work with, at your level.
Proven techniques: initial training consists of 3 basic lessons in one package - you learn the fundamental chess concept; applications to ensure you understand how to win, using that concept; and some game planning concepts. Typically, my students don't need a lot more one-to-one tutoring, to continue their growth, as I provide them with suggested materials to study - all at their own speed.
Lessons package - (only one $25 charge) will cover as much as a student can absorb, plus materials via email - to study further and enhance the lessons. total lesson time, generally 1 1/2 to 3 hours times for the one payment, plus at least 30 hours self-study materials to work with at your own absorption speed.
Additional lessons available if interested and after demonstrated ability to apply the techniques in the first lesson.
message me directly for payment instructions. Thanks.
