    John goes beyond expectations with the effort and thoughtfulness he puts into the work he does.

    His rates are great compared to many others with similar credentials.

    John has a very approachable attitude, and you should seriously consider letting him improve your game. 

    Since he's an adult, you can be assured he won't miss appointments, forget about you, lack interest in his commitments, etc. Being a mature adult really helps.

    Thanks!

    Coaching anywhere in the world-Check out your WORLD TIME CLOCK to see the time difference for your session-I am in SYDNEY AUSTRALIA TIME

    http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/

    As a coach I have a unique style and primarily seek to understand the psychological makeup of a student to help them unleash their potential and fun along the learning curve!

    To do this, I primarily analyse their games, ask them 'what if?' and 'why?' questions and encourage them to also analyze with their opponents.

    I also believe it is important to enjoy your chess and like to assist players to reach a level that they, the students are personally comfortable with.

    Im probably a good coach for the student beginner or the mid range player who wants a companion/coach to lift his/her game or someone that may desire to play with an experienced player with chat for longer private chess sessions.

    I often end up good friends with my students as a result.

    For players that dont know, you can Chat to me FREE and enhance your chess experience from anywhere in the world by signing up to 'SKYPE'.

    My Friend, experienced Full Time Coach Brendon Norman has 'excellent credentials' and I recommend you look at his coaching profile as well.

    I admire and reccomend Trainer Georgie Xie for the very serious players over 2000 rating who want to shoot for 'The Stars'

    As a player fairly new to chess, I found John Curtis to be an excelent coach.

    After the first lesson I become more comptitive in games and started to beat players I otherwise could not have.

    He has an excellent caoching style, not overloading the student with information, but rather giving advice where needed and asking questions to help the student find the best stragtegies on their own.

    I would highly recommend John as a coach.
