Why Train With Me?

coachChoosing a chess trainer should be done with a bit of care. During my long and many facetted chess career I have come across many chess players, trainers and teaching materials. One obvious conclusion I drew is that playing strength, expressed in the (in)famous ELO-rating, does not equal teaching strength. When considering taking up chess training in whatever way, shape or form, you are not necessarily looking for a strong player, but for a good teacher. The two demand very different skill sets. When training with me you get a trainer who:

  • is a chess expert himself and has a wealth of experience playing and teaching chess
  • has proven teaching and coaching skills
  • can relate to your challenges and will give you guidance
  • listens and will do his utmost to understand your needs
  • pin-points your strengths and weaknesses and will come up with suggestions on how to deal with both(!)
  • will hand you some basic tools to organize your chess thinking
  • can help you to create an opening repertoire
  • will share with you one single comprehensive classical vision on playing chess
  • focuses on the differences between the amateur and master player, always trying to discover the secrets of better chess
  • can teach you in english , german , french or dutch .
