About Me:

My USCF is 2381. I am a rated player with Fide Rating 2211. I have lots of professional coaching experience. I can teach all the categories of players and can have group discussions for for a group of students together.






I actually love teaching beginners because I believe you learn a lot by teaching the basics. 






Details of the coaching packages : 






1. Chess coaching (1000-1400) : This would cover opening basics + Middlegame tactics + Endgames....






For serious candidates who wish to continue after the first session, fee can be reduced in extreme cases.






2. Advanced level Game analysis : This session would be online including full game analysis. It would cover opening mistakes, middlegame planning and endgame discussion. Tips will also be given on how to improve the opening, middlegame and endgame overall.






3. Chess coaching (1500-1800) : A more detailed focused approach on opening, middlegame and endgame. This would also include two 5 min. game with one colour each time. The discussion and analysis of the three aspects would be followed on the games in general and overall in particular.






4. Game Analysis : This would include a 1 hour thorough discussion of a including opening, middlegame and endgame analysis. An annotated form of the game would be sent to the candidates via email.






5. Opening package : This would include a detailed and through opening package which would cover openings from a white side, black side. Two openings from each side would be discussed with all possible variations and side lines. This would also include some suprise lines which can be effectively used to dodge the opponents in the early phase phase of the game. After this session, the student will not require to study openings ever after. The student's only responsibility would be to check for any novelties or new in thoery of the games in future. The opening preparation would include openings according to the candidates style including positional, attacking, tactical and others.






6. Game Analysis: Please send me your games in PGN format and I will analse them and send back the results.



7. Group coaching: Students who are interested in group coaching can apply here. This package is for two students. If there are more than two, you must contact me personally. 



Lastly, I coach because I love the game and want others to learn from me and contribute for the game. Prices if found too high can be negotiated.






Striving for chessellence.






Thank you.

    Pratts is such a good guy , very humble, nice, caring, I can go on.  He values chess and really wants you to get bettere.  If you are his student you will be very happy.  Pratts is honest about how he feels about what openings you should play, and how you should go forward with chess.  I agree with Tucker, he is not a clock watcher, and is really nice.  He answers all of your questions, and he answers it really well.  Can't wait for next class man!

    Hi guys,

    I just worked with Prats for my first time and I want to let everyone know that he is an excellent coach. Because it was our first session, he thought it would be best to diagnose my problems first so we agreed that playing a game would be the best way to handle it. After our game, Prats took a significant amount of excess time to go through my game with me and analyze extensive variations- not only showing his knowledge, but also his dedication to his students. He obviously does not watch the clock and wanted to make sure that I understood what he was talking about. This is a trait that every person should look for in a coach and Prats definitely has it! I look forward to my next session with Prats and look forward to my continued improvement with him!

    Just had my first session with Pratts, I have to admit I am a novice with little chess experience. All I can say is "wow" Pratts a very patient Tutor, who ensured that I understood what was been taught.

    Pratts is not a "clock watcher, and it is clear he loves to teach and our 1 hour session quickly became a 2 hour session. Looking forward to my next lession.
