    First of all, I would like to thank Mr. Norbert for taking out his precious time to discuss lot of things on chess. He is a brilliant teacher and a coach. I like the way he explains things in depth on every position and openings/end games. He has a great knowledge and provides wonderful insights. I miss having such coaches around me to tutor me on board. However, I recommend Norbert for players of all experience levels. I will look forward getting coached from him. Thank you.

    Mit Herrn Barth trainiere ich seit 8 Jahren. Wir arbeiten sowohl mit Taktikaufgaben als auch mit Partien, die wir im Nachhinein auf Fehler und Verbesserungen durcharbeiten. Ich bin sehr glücklich mit so einem Schachlehrer, weil ich mit ihm über verschiedene Themen reden kann. In den ersten Jahren belegte ich bei den Kreismeisterschaften den 3. Platz und bei den Unterfränkischen Schulschachmeisterschaften den 2. Platz. Ich wünsche Herrn Barth, dass er auch andere Schüler inspiriert und auf ihrem schachlichen Weg begleitet.
