Chess.com Coach

I am an ambitious 19 year old chess player/coach from the UK. FIDE 1641, ECF 1735.

In 2018, I played in my first chess tournament: Frodsham weekend congress, in which I came 1st Place on 5/5. Since then, I have played in about a dozen tournaments, with a peak in my performance last summer at Telford 4NCL U2000 (performance: 1819).


I offer chess lessons for beginner/novice players (under 1500 ELO), who want to improve their game.

I have 2-3 years coaching experience, and usually use chessbase and skype.

One of my students who has improved dramatically is: Alexandre de Maupeou d'Ableiges (@destroyer8470) who gained over 700 points in blitz chess in the year I worked with him. He has been in the news and mentions me in this post.


Every Student Gets...

  • 1 hour lesson - Delivered through skype screen share.
  • Email Support - I usually reply within 24 hours and answer any questions students may have.
  • Personalised homework - This will be based on the lesson and content we have discussed.
  • Study Plan - Advice on best practices, book recommendations and study tips.

Lesson fee is £20/hr. Block discounts are possible (arranged on an individual basis).
