Fide Master (FM) with international experience and official Chess instructor gives classes from kids to adults!

Methodology

Thankfully Covid-19 has not been a problem for learning and improving chess. I can give classes online to an alumnus or a group. From the first class, I assess and develop an individual program to work on the weaknesses and help you reach your goal. I have chess material ready and you will be able to access it anytime! I tend to focus on strengthening the opening middle-game and endgame. Depending on the current level it could be more beneficial to work more on strategy or tactics.

You can find my details and contact me directly (if you don't want to arrange the classes via Superprof).

Background

Classes do not need to be arranged on Superprof, please contact me through Facebook, email or Whatsapp otherwise!

First of all, chess is really fun, and thanks to Beth Harmon is as popular as it has ever been! It improves many of your aptitudes including concentration, critical thinking, and problem-solving among others. As a Ph.D. student, I can really tell you how much good playing chess has done for me.

I have played chess since I was 5 years old and compete in big tournaments all over the world. I have a diploma from the Chess Federation in Madrid that makes me an Official Chess Instructor. I have experience teaching from 5-year-old students to more mature players who want to improve their rating. I am a Fide Master (FM) with a 2340 Fide rating and two International Master norms. I am studying and trying to work my way to Grandmaster (GM) in the next years. So no matter what level you are in, I can help you!

Apart from that, I am finishing my Ph.D. at the University of Edinburgh. I have 4 years of experience in demonstrating and giving particular classes at several university levels and subjects from biology to physics.

Perfect! Really nice guy, good social skills, and has gone over time on tutorials every time I think without trying to end it suddenly which makes me feel like he’s passionate about chess and is having a good time also so I feel valued and that we are both enjoying the process. Very enjoyable. Thanks

Perfect! Sergio is a very good tutor. I am in the middle of a course with Sergio and he explains the fundamental concepts extremely well. I feel as though my level has already increased.

Sergio has been an absolutely fantastic chess tutor for my sister over the last few months. Every lesson he is sure to check what systems/ openings she wants to cover, and gives in-depth, clear explanations and analysis of her technique and application of the method learnt. The games that he played with her were also highly beneficial to her development and understanding. I cannot recommend Sergio enough for his talent and dedication to chess tuition.
