    And reversly, if you are a top GM but cannot teach properly, you are worth less (as a teacher) as some random club player that can explain things.


    you may be a great teacher but no chess teacher

    You don't have to be a GM to teach every aspect of chess.

    but you need at least be strong titled player, do you remember how heisman evaded the chess question about a position in his show??

    and he already has a title, untitled players should have even more problems.

    It depends what you're teaching.

    A 1500 player probably can't teach advanced strategical concepts very well or analyse games in great depth, but they can teach simple tactics and checkmates.

    You could charge 2 million an hour if your student was blinded by the light.

    I want to teach chess later on in a few years once I have gained more knowledge and experience in chess myself. While I know skill doesn't directly translate into being a better teacher I suspect that people will give you more respect and credibility if you have a proven track record of some baseline success in chess and also have a larger pool of potential students besides beginners and new players. Maybe when I reach class A in USCF for example. Definitely want to teach someday!

    I believe you should charge what area of the world you are in. I charge $10 when I was in Poughkeepsie NY and people thought I was crazy. I'm in Columbus OH and I still charge that. I only charge that much because I think it's reasonable. Now if you give online lessons it's more difficult so then you have to charge more
