Hi! I'm James Coleman from England, now 43 years old - and I started to play chess at age 7.


I've competed in many international tournaments around the world and experienced all the highs and lows that go with competitive chess.


Peak Ratings: FIDE 2262, ECF 223

I'm retired from playing - no longer active in tournaments or studying chess for personal benefit, now focussed solely on coaching.

As a coach I believe the key to improvement is enjoying the game and setting realistic goals. I'm mostly self-taught in chess so I know what sort of study methods don't work well, and can help you avoid these pitfalls. So, whether you're simply in a bit of a rut or you want to make serious progress I'm available to help you reach your goals. 


For coaching enquiries it helps to have some info about yourself, such as how long you've been playing, OTB experience, rating, and especially your time-zone, so that we can plan what's best for you! I read it all carefully! 

I try to respond to messages very quickly, and will usually get back to you within a couple of hours. 

Online lessons with Skype are $40 per hour

If the lesson or training session goes over the allotted time, as it often does, there will never be any request for additional payment, or anything of that sort, so you don't have to worry on that side of things.

Face to face coaching in London or Surrey is £50 per session, for elsewhere in UK, send me a message with some details. 

Finally, if you're under 18, I'd ask that you don't message me regarding coaching, instead, please have your parents send me a message/email to make the first contact. 

In the meantime, good luck with your chess :-)
