What guarantee do I have that I will improve?
Your chess skills and rating will improve! Check out the testimonies from my students. But, if after 4 lessons you feel that your chess has not improved I will give you back 100% of what you have invested.
Why an elite chess coach?
Most chess coaches focus on results, like wining or losing. But I focus on the root problems causing you not to improve. This makes my coaching effective and fun. Every chess player wants to stop making the same mistakes. My coaching focuses how to best equip you to become a better chess player. Also, I am an elite player and have 8 years of experience playing and coaching chess at Club level.
How do I ask questions if I don’t understand the chess lessons?
Ask during the lesson, or any time you want. My coaching style is very interactive and I care more about you understanding the lessons than anything else.
Can you help me with chess tournaments?
I can come to the chess tournament to help you to prepare for the games against your opponents. I can also help you online with preparation for the chess tournament; game analysis of opponents and good advice to follow during the tournament.
What hours are you available for coaching, online or in person?
I am available for coaching online, Monday – Friday 8:30am – 6pm. And coaching in person, Monday – Friday 8:30am – 5pm.
How do I know I am safe meeting you for face-to-face coaching?
I have worked for schools, provincial teams and chess clubs. I am professional and take my coaching seriously. If you are under the age of 18 I recommend that a parent or guardian joins you for the first lesson. They are also welcome to contact me any time. You are also welcome to start with an online lesson and then progress to in person lessons at a later point if you wish.
