As a Coach:

I don't follow conventional methods that revolve around me asking you to memorize a lot of stuff and ask you to read different books to get better. My approach is much more conversation driven and dynamic to the situation. I'm a great listener, and a very effective communicator. I can definitely help you get better in a short period of time if your rating is below 2000. I work well with both, kids & adults and enjoy the time and process spent in identifying what works best for you.

I do set rating targets as well as specific goals & milestones for each student and track their progress throughout their learning cycle. I can also assign Gold Memberships.

Coaching Method:

Using either Skype or Zoom and the analysis board, we will study positions that are tailored towards your study requirement, analyze your played games periodically, and begin our curriculum after your learning level is determined in our first session.

This will also allow me to plan the rest of our session better and create an appropriate study plan for you. There on, we will play regular training games from time to time after every 3-4 sessions to reinforce the concepts being taught in your study routine.
