Booking FAQs:

If you want to book a 90 minute as opposed to a 60 minute lesson, it is possible to do so by choosing  a morning slot on the booking calendar i.e. 9.30-10.30am or 11.30am-12.30pm from Monday to Friday or any time slot on Saturday (9.30am/ 11.30am/ 2.00pm).    I will know that you have booked a 90 minute classes when I see the payment of 90 Euros.    When you have filled out the booking form, choose the Pay Locally option as opposed to Paypal.  You will immediately receive an email confirmation of your pending booking.  This will include the Chess Bud Revolut, EFT or Paypal details.  Once you have paid for the class, Mark will confirm your booking as soon as possible or within 24 hours.

A BIT MORE ABOUT MARK’S INDIVIDUAL LESSONS 

New students are welcome at any time and can book a training session with me without having to ask me to take them on as a student. All you have to do is take a look at my booking calendar and if there is a free slot that suits you, just go ahead and book it!  And let the adventure begin 🙂

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 International Masters 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 coache.  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.
