Streamer/Youtuber Offers Chess Lessons

ForceIsOnMySide

Hello Friends! You might know me from my youtube channel https://www.youtube.com/kestony ,

First of all, I would like my students to write reviews here about their experience with me as their coach.

Second of all, I am informing you about the possibility of hiring me as your personal coach. Firstly, I implement chess topics that are absolute necessity to know for each player: how to create a plan, pawn breaks, piece improvement, exchanges to name a few. I will explain you the topic, we will look at some examples, and then I will give you 10 (can be less if you don't have time) positions (positional exercises) from that topic that you will have to solve till next lesson. Then I will also review your games and see how you implement the knowledge into practice, I will explain your mistakes and give you a general path, how to avoid making same mistakes next time. After you will get the required knowledge of the main topics you will already be a very strong player, bashing local club players blindfolded and of course we will constantly work on your weaknesses as well - openings/endgames.

Very good coach at extremely affordable rates. He has got immense experience and knowledge to put into practice. He teaches the basic and advanced concepts in middlegame in a very efficient manner, which is very enjoyable and encouraging. He trains and analyses games very well which is very easy to grasp and understand. I feel much more confident with my tactics and positional understanding since taking lessons from him. He is very flexible with his timing and speaks english very fluently. He is not just a good coach but also a very strong motivator who will encourage you to become better chess player when you lose games or you lose interests.

Excellent coach!! Unlike most coaches, Kestony is very flexible in scheduling lessons and always well prepared for the lessons. He never worries about session duration and our lessons stretched well over the paid time. Also, while choosing a coach I am a bit concerned about language barriers but Kestony is pretty fluent in English. 

I particularly liked our session on rook and queen improvement and I can definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a good coach.

Wow! I've just had the first lesson with Kestony and I am overwhelmed by his motivation, his big effort (for a very small tuition fee), and the many things that he showed me in my games. He really opened my eyes! I'm looking forward to have many, many more lessons with Kestony and hopefully to become a better chess player with his help. Thank you so much, Kestony! thumbup.png

I had my first lesson with Kestony. He put a lot of humor in my errors which I appreciate; helps me remember the lesson. Went through a few lessons on pinning and forking followed by reviewing a few of my games. Great to go through with him so he can pick apart the flaws and improve your game. I am really looking forward to our next lesson.

Amazing coach!! At first I had second thoughts about online classes because it was my first time, but after the class I was very happy that I contacted Mr. Kestony for online classes

I have found Obie one. That is right. May the force be with you. After listening, yes listening. I was graced by a master. I am only sorry to say that I retained a fraction of the jewels poured over me. Next time I will have to bring a basket. So later I can fondle through them. Pick up the jems.

I completely agree with the statements below: Kestony is a great coach. I can recommend 100%. You will get a coach who really cares about his students. He perfectly adjusted the lessons to my current level: Not too slow, not too fast, not too easy, not too difficult. All you need is Skype and you are good to go. Thanks!

This guy is amazing, we only had our first lesson together, but I've learned a ton of information from him. He's the real deal with very afforable rates. And he's an amazing person overall.

Time to celebrate for me... :-)

150 rating points improvement on chess.com in just six weeks! I consider myself to be an above average hobby player and Kestony helped me with the first steps to sustainably improve my chess: Overcome an amateur's style of thinking and start to evaluate the board from a positional point of view.

Thanks! :-)

Kestony is responsible for lifting my rating in daily chess above the 1700 level (currently 1734). He not only taught me new things about pawn breaks and piece improvement, but most of all he carefully analyzed my games and quickly found out my two main weaknesses. Then we worked on that and ... the weaknesses began to disappear.
