« Davayne is an amazing instructor and is willing to teach as well as learn from those around him. This is how I met Davayne in grade 7, he used to help his peers and friends with mathematics. I think Davayne is a trustworthy teacher because he a very motivated, determine and enthusiastic individual. He has an encouraging personality that easily persuades others to achieve greatness despite any obstacle that lingers. I would recommend Davayne to the other Superprof members because he is of sound character and motivates as well as elevates his peers.

Chess Teacher with 11 months of Masterclass Experience gives online group lessons

Methodology

My teaching method is using several chess textbooks from Michael Stean and Svetozar Gligoric. My technique is to dive into the history of these players so you can understand more about them as a player, and develop your very own tactic in the game.
