Information About Madara - Canonbury teacher - (4 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Madara:
I am a Doctor of Psychology and I have been conducting studies about cognitive abilities of young chess players. I have 24 years experience of playing chess myself. I am candidate master of Latvia, having international (FIDE) rating of 2062 and ECF rating of 194, which is a good level. I have graduated from Riga Chess School (which I attended from 1993 to 2009) and am holding a professional education degree in Chess. I have participated in one European Youth Chess Championship and four World Youth Chess Championships representing my country as a teenager. Later, I kept participating in team tournaments of A league of Latvia. I had a few years break from chess when I was writing my Doctoral thesis. Now I am living in London and back to chess, I play in Crystal Palace & Croydon Chess Club, see: **Web Address Removed**'s%20new.htm
I am also organising chess tournaments for my young chess students.
I have around 6 years experience teaching chess to primary school children and tutoring adults back in Latvia, and I enjoyed it very much. Some of my students participated in chess tournaments and improved their chess level. Some just played for fun and chess brought them much of joy and positive emotions. Since October 2016 I have started private 1-1 chess tutoring of children and adults in London.
I am friendly, supportive and encouraging. I try to understand individual characteristics, needs and interests of a student and be flexible while teaching. I make sure that student feels comfortable and enjoys the lessons. I can teach moves, tactics and strategy for beginners and help to improve chess technique of more advanced players, suggesting theory and ideas.
