Group Chess Class for Amateurs
What you'll learn
Firstly, we will warm up by doing basic chess exercises or by learning tactical motifs. To learn chess you can't memorize every possible move. You want to be able to use tactics and pattern recognition to outsmart your opponent. That's why a chess coach is so important. Then we will analyze students' games together. I will explain strategic mistakes that students typically make and we will work on how to avoid them in future games. This is what chess engines can’t help you with. I also teach students how to find candidate moves and properly choose the best of them. If you are a beginner, first we will discuss basic principles of how to play the opening and coordinate your pieces. As you improve in skill we will move on to a more advanced chess class. In the third part of the lesson, we will analyze typical positions that you are usually faced with. Knowing these positions will be the basis of your chess knowledge. We'll also analyze GM’s games to learn plans and typical ideas in such positions. The best way to learn chess is to see how the GMs play. A Grandmaster has perfected his skills enough to beat any challenger. And let me tell you something they don't win that title by accident. Studying their moves and understanding what they chose to do and what they didn't give you a deep understanding of chess. Finally, if there is time left, we will work on your opening repertoire. Some say that this is the most important part of chess. If you play a good opening you could easily win the game. We'll improve on your existing opening or replace the openings you struggle with. Book a class today to improve your chess skills. No more guesswork while playing. No more plateauing and not making any progress.
