A BIT MORE ABOUT OUR INDIVIDUAL LESSONS 

It may be you are an absolute beginner who has finally found the time to take up the great game but is not sure where to start. Even if you are only looking forward to playing chess for fun with family, friends or online, I will be happy to build you a bespoke training program to get your chess adventures underway. Perhaps you are a keen player and student of the game whose results have begun to plateau. The law of diminishing returns kicks in at various points in every chess player’s career as you attempt to reach the next rung of the chess ladder. Sometimes, all you need is an injection of ideas and a little guidance to raise your game to the next level. At different stages in my chess development, I benefited immensely from training sessions with GM Mihai Suba, GM Alexander Baburin and analysing and playing endless hours of blitz and rapid matches with Italian IMs Federico Manca and Carlo Rossi.

It goes without saying that very few chess players make the most of their talent without guiding influences at critical stages in their chess development. Whether you have just achieved your first rating or are an experienced player hoping to break the magical 2000+ level or an expert with his or her sights set on achieving the FM, IM or GM title, I will be happy to build a bespoke training program for you. Some of my students are complete beginners, others are striving to become national champions or attain the International Master or Grandmaster Title. I keep working with students until such a time as they achieve their specific goals, or decide to break from coaching or to move on to train with other coaches, at which point I am open to taking on a new student.  Many of my individual students have attended my beginners, intermediate and advanced courses before signing up for one-on-one lessons with a view to achieving specific goals. I also regularly ‘second’ students, i.e. provide advice and help prepare students for international and domestic competitions including round-by-round preparation for specific opponents.
