Individual Coaching

Private Coaching

I have coached individuals for over 2 decades. Individualised coaching involves one to one personalised coaching sessions, reviewing and analysing a students games – focusing on the specific areas of their play which need work. I work with some students on calculation, others on strategy, with some on openings and others on endgames. I also work with students who play in tournaments on preparation for their upcoming games.

All chess players have different strengths and weaknesses, and I provide a personalised program for each student depending on their particular needs. An additional service I provide to private students involves email feedback on games they have played and sent to me, as well as quick phone conversations and “pep talks” between rounds of tournaments and before important games.
