How to become a chess coach?

safeassign
Hello, firstly, I am not the best in chess I know. I started playing in October 2018. I am 20. My highest rating so far is 1500 and by the end of 2019 I hope to be a 1800 player. I want to start teaching chess for kids in my country for free. How do I become a chess coach for kids? Do I need to be a tilted player because I am a long way from that. I love chess and there is very little chess culture in my country. Which venue would one do it at? a school? university? church? Have you done coaching before for beginners? I have a passion but don't know where to start

Hi! My suggestion is for you to first focus on improving your theoretical and practical knowledge of the game. Just keep on learning and playing chess,...just remember to take one step at a time. Becoming a chess coach is a long journey, good luck!

Just do it.

If you really want to do something, you'll find a way, a place, and a time.

Is it a passion or an obession?

It started as a passion now it's flirting with becoming an obsession, what's next chess addiction?😅

Just do it, and make it fun for kids.
