Titled Player
Diamond Member Coach

I am Life Master Theo Slade and I offer chess lessons online and in person. I am English, but I moved to Orlando, Florida in 2015 and have been living here ever since.

I was England's top scorer at the World U16 Olympiad in China as an U12 and I have been writing a monthly column for the British Chess Magazine since I was 12; I am the youngest ever writer for the world's oldest chess journal!

I have been coaching since 2015, but since I graduated high school in May 2019, I've been doing it full time.

My rates are:

Introductory 1-hour lesson: $50

1 hour: $70

3 hours: $195

6 hours: $350

When I get a new student, I always ask for their latest games so I can analyze them to find their strengths and weaknesses and so we can discuss them together. I always answer any questions my students may have because I feel that is the main benefit of having a live lesson; you cannot ask questions of a book, article, or prerecorded video.

After the lesson, I always send the materials through to my students so they can review them in the future.
