Personal Description:

My name is Geoff, I am a qualified teacher and offer friendly and knowledgeable chess coaching. I offer online coaching using Zoom. I am an IM and have been ranked in the top-20 UK players.

Teaching Experience:

I have a PGCE, and have taught at primary, junior and secondary level. I've coached chess for 30 years, including 10 years with the Checkmate Junior Club in Birmingham.

Teaching Approach:

I have a friendly approach, and aim to give the student a firm foundation in chess skill. I try to achieve this by explaining the basics well - ie patterns in tactics and in long term strategy. I also believe that endgame knowledge is key to being a strong player, in my opinion this is what separates players more than anything else. These patterns are best learnt by looking at the
students' games, so we will spend time doing that…
