Online chess lessons for all levels
What you'll learn
Hello! My name is Mihailo Djokic from Serbia. I am 19 years old and have been playing chess since I was four years old, with serious training starting at the age of twelve. I use these many years of experience as my main tool for helping my students improve. Feel free to message me any time if you are interested. I have much experience playing against Grandmasters of the highest level, and have had a peak FIDE rating of 2319. A passion for helping people improve is what drives my teaching. I will work with students of any level, whether you want to beat your neighbour or become a master I will do my best to make you a better player and reach your goals! I have a strong knowledge in all phases of the game, especially the opening, but I prefer focusing more on the middlegame and strategy! Most players have a big gap in their knowledge when it comes to strategy, and everyone's play could be improved by improving this area of their play. Mix in the final essential element of tactics, and success is guaranteed! -What I can surely guarantee to my students is that I will work with them to find what's holding them back and target those skills to help them make quick progress! -What I offer students: ✔️Opening theory: (Reti, Sicilian Deffence, French Deffence, Kings Indian, Different gambits, depending on your style of playing) ✔️Middlegame strategy and tactic: (Process of thinking, tricks and tips, basic understanding) ✔️Principles in endgames: (King activity, why is it important?
