Daniela MovileanuRome, Italy
I’m Daniela Movileanu, a Woman Fide Master (WFM) from Italy.
I won the Italian Women Chess Championship twice, in 2015 and 2016, and I played with the Italian national team at the European Team Championship of 2015 and at the Olympiads of 2016. Currently I have two WIM norms.
Besides being a chess player and a university student, I’ve also been teaching chess to children from age 6 to 14 in the last two years. I really enjoy my time with children at the chessboard, and I am willing to help motivated people of all ages to get a good understanding of the basics of chess, if beginners, and improve their skills, if more experienced players.
I am happy with my coaching results so far. My students show a good understanding of the basics principles of chess, and they have grown more and more passionate over time. I always try to make my teaching as unbiased as possible, which means that I make the effort of teaching my students what best fits them and not necessarily what I personally play.
Finally, what I find more important in teaching is building a friendly relationship with my students and being always available outside of just the lessons.
I am available for lessons in Italian, English, and Romanian.
As an alternative, you can challenge me to long games on chess.com and play something (e.g. a specific opening) you would like to practice. After the game, I will send to you a detailed analysis with suggestions and comments. We can agree on the fee before the games depending on your needs.
