My name is Damiano Locci, I'm 31 years old, I'm from Cagliari, Sardinia, but I live in Rome. I play chess since I was a child and I enjoy so much giving chess lessons and doing training games with my students, for this reason I work as chess instructor with very affordable prices! In my life I studied International Relationships and now I'm studying for joining the diplomatic career in Italy.

background and experience

My background & experience

My FIDE rating is 2216, I've played chess tournaments since I was 7 years old and I played in my career a lot of strong international opens, like Reykjavik, Open de Sants in Barcellona, Cannes and many others. I've been an Italian youth chess champion under 16 in 2006 and I played the World Youth Chess Championship in Batumi, Georgia that year. In 2018 I got the National Master title, and I participated in the World Amateur Chess Championship, where I shared 3rd place arriving first among the European players. During my chess career as a player, I gained a lot of experience as chess instructor, an activity I practiced for more than 13 years. I prepared many young players for national and international youth competitions with good results, and I held a lot of courses in schools and chess clubs, with students of every age. I have been the trainer of the Italian blind players who took part in the World Chess Championship for blind players in 2019 and I held a chess course in a mental hygiene clinic also.

My classes and teaching style

I'm proposing a course about basic tactics, aimed for beginner and intermediate players: during the course you will be called to solve many different exercises and then I will give you all the explanations you need to improve!
