Teaching Methodology

I am interested for serious students who want really want to improve their chess. 
My plan for coaching is simple- 
If you already have a topic to work on, it will be easier for me else I will ask you to send me the games before we start. (Last 3 months tournament games)Then I will build a plan of our work, including improving openings, studying classical games, endgames and more.

1. Work upon those topics in class
2. Give homework to practice/solve - which will be discussed in the next class
3. Will send some material regarding that to study and gain knowledge.

Session Timings

Either it can be 1 or 1and half sessions or else 20 hrs course.In a 20 hrs private lessons,We will cover 3hrs on opening,3hrs on endgame,7hrs on positional & 7hrs on calculations or it can be done upon the requirement of the student..

I live in India(+5:30 UTC), and prefer classes either in noon or late evening(my time). 

I am available to play long training games with analysis.Also possible to request to play in specific opening/typical positions or structures.

1. I can help you to chose wisely which tournaments to play, guide you during the tournament with suggestions.
2. If you are not very acquainted with Chessbase, I can help you to understand how to use the tool in the right way.
