GM Valeriy Aveskulov

We spend countless hours studying openings, buying books and videos, and playing in tournaments. Yet, sometimes our game and rating progress stagnate. If this is a familiar story, consider the services of a personal coach.

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. If you don't have a plan of improvement, don't worry. I always do.

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.

It also 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. You'll find my rates are competitive with those of other GM's.

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.

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.

To improve and enjoy your chess, I am what you are looking for!

Best regards,


GM Valeriy Aveskulov
