Diamond Member Coach

Hello, dear chess friends!

I’m Illia Golichenko, Chess coach and International Chess Master from Kyiv, Ukraine.
I have over 20 years of chess experience.

During my coaching career, I have worked with over 180 students from more than 40 countries, aged from 6 to 70, with different chess levels: from beginners to advanced players with a rating of over 2300.

Having a background in psychology (I have a degree in psychology) and applying my knowledge in chess lessons, I show the connection of chess with life and how chess can help in real life, and how students can use it in their lives. So during the lessons, I can work with different psychological aspects of preparation and difficulties in the student's way

I use an individual approach to each student, show my students the beauty of chess and try to find their interest and work with inspiration, so I create my lessons with humor and make them useful and interesting for my students.
