Chess Lessons (All levels and Ages). FIDE Trainer
What you'll learn
From the very basics to professional tournament training, I invite you to learn chess together! Whether it's because you want to learn chess as a hobby to have fun and relax; or use it as a tool to stimulate memory, reasoning, concentration and the decision-making process; or because you aspire to increase your chess level and understand the technical, psychological and artistic aspects in greater depth; or because you would like to enter the competitive arena as a high-performance player, the lessons will always be adapted to your specific objectives. On the first lesson, through a series of puzzles I will pinpoint your skills, strengths and weakness to then build a training plan. TAP: Train, Analyze and Play. That is the estructure we will follow. We will work over a wide range of subjects that will increase your strength: Calculation, Tactics, Theoretical endgames, Positional play, Dynamics, Openings, Pawns structures, Planning, Blindfold training, Swindles, Pattern recognition. Besides we will work over more concrete topics, to name a few: intuition versus calculation, time administration, building an opening repertoire, practic utility of artistic problems, making a good use of chess engines and databases, psychological aspects of the decision making process. After every lesson I send homework about the content we are studying (Puzzles, Games, Videos, Books, Databases, among others) and even some chess humor! The lessons are delivered both in English and Spanish according to the student preference. Additionally, being one of my students you will have free access to the Online Blitz Tournament of my chess academy (its held the last saturday of each month on Lichess).
