Many club players study openings, buy books and videos, and play in tournaments. These efforts are commendable. But they don't usually lead to permanent improvement.
Quite likely, the most improved players in your location are taking chess lessons from a FIDE-titled player. Having a qualified personal chess coach boosts a player's expertise the fastest.
While some 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.
It also requires more than solving a few puzzles. Tactical exercises are just a fraction of the study required to achieve chess mastery. What else should you study? I'll teach you how to study chess. Show you the secrets as only a grandmaster can.
I teach the how, what, and why of chess. Motivated students then study and practice on their own. I monitor their individual progress and indicate the areas that need work.
My primary service is personal chess mentoring. Active chess tutoring 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. My FIDE standard rating is 2520, rapid 2509, and blitz 2552.
Follow my instructions. Watch as your game improves and your rating soars. If you don't see a path to improvement, don't worry. Simply leave the worrying to me.
