Why Train With Me?
Choosing 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 .
