About the lesson
I tailor terminology according to each of my students, that way it’s best absorbed by them (my younger students call the king “grandpa,” haha) I also hold high-prize on getting a feel for what kind of individual I am coaching, and what playing style their personality might lean towards. Some are more attack oriented — flashy sacrifices and aggressive play. Others are more reserved — cautious and like more structured, positional play. I take that all into account while playing and talking with my students. From there I decide which “openings” would be best to teach them that can lead to such positions that favor them.
Class A player (one step before mastery) I’ve been coaching for 3 years and have experience teaching children just beginning their chess adventure, all the way up to grown adults who have gained a recent interest or have played for years and just want to sharpen their skills!
Perfect! James is very perceptive and intelligent. He knew right away how to engage and teach my 5 year old and 7 year old boys in the game of chess. I don’t think I could have hoped for a better chess coach. He is flexible and understanding of our time and punctual. I definitely highly recommend him.
