You may be a great teacher but no have a title.
Crucial point, which some people apparently do not understand.
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.
Yes ofc that is true. but i personally would feel weird if teached that and they had a another question about chess i might not be able answer.
Yeah I agree with that.
You could charge 2 million an hour if your student was blinded by the light.
Parents will pay more for (in decreasing order)
2. Tutoring any subject that improves their grades.
3. Music Lessons
4. Golf Lessons
5. Chess Lessons
6. Art Lessons
The whole art is making them believe that 5) is included in 2).
good one :D
(for those who don't know - it isn't)
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!
dude do 15- 20 dollers a hour.
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
