Hi! Are you looking to improve your game? I would be happy to help out! I offer a course for starters and custom lessons for players up to 2000 elo. 

I'm a 23-year-old chess player from the Netherlands. Apart from playing, I love to teach chess and have been giving lessons to both children and adults for the past ten years.

Would you like to learn the main chess principles by following in the footsteps of the legendary Paul Morphy (1837-1884)? Then you might be interested in my starters course. More information can be found below. Are you interested in custom lessons? Then you are welcome to contact me on We can communicate in English or Dutch. 

Starters course Morphy
Throughout this course we let ourselves be guided by a single game of Morphy. This beautiful game will introduce you to seven of the most important principles in chess strategy. Every principle will be explained interactively in one-hour online lessons. After every lesson, you are provided with self-study exercises. We will close off with a final session to recap all principles and answer any remaining questions.
