(photo: Anastasia Karlovich) We spend countless hours studying openings, buying books and videos, and playing in tournaments. Despite this, sometimes our game and rating progress stagnate.
If this is a familiar story, the services of a personal coach are often useful. A qualified mentor will ensure your continued development and comprehension. Simply leave the worrying to him. Follow his instructions. Watch as your game improves and your rating soars.
While lessons and lectures are instructive, playing good chess requires effort on your part. Except for rare geniuses, success in sport is 10% skill and 90% sweat. Attending lectures will not make you a strong player, just as attending medical lectures will not make you a doctor. The right mix of instruction and practice is needed.
My method of teaching involves explaining the how, what, and why of chess. Motivated students then study and practice on their own. I monitor your progress and indicate the areas that need work. You'll find my rates competitive with those of other GM's.
Improving your chess requires more than solving a few puzzles. Tactical exercises are just a fraction of the study needed to achieve mastery. What about the other elements of chess? What should you study? I'll teach you how to study chess and show you the secrets as only a grandmaster can.
My primary service is general chess mentoring, active chess tutoring. This is the best and quickest way to become a stronger player. I'll cover many general and important areas as I teach you how and what to study in chess. I'm proficient in English, Russian and Ukrainian.
Each lesson normally lasts one hour, but longer sessions are possible. You'll get chess guidance and study material. I offer game analysis, both offline and online, and training games. I answer some questions by email.
All lessons I offer will be held on ICC with payment in chekels, or on FICS, with payment through 2CheckOut. I can give lessons from other sites if desired. Satisfaction is guaranteed. Cancel any time you like.
Typical students improved their repertoire of chess tactics, honed their chess strategy, encountered new chess tips, and solved many chess puzzles on the road to becoming stronger players. Why not join their ranks and start improving your chess today? There is nothing I enjoy more than helping students increase their mastery of chess.
To improve and enjoy your chess, I am what you are looking for!
