Personal Description:

I tutor Chess from Complete Beginner Level upwards. I started playing Chess in 1989!

I tutor in or near the North West London, Central London, Saint Albans, Watford and Hertfordshire areas and occasionally in South and East London too. I also tutor online with a 50% discount only during the lockdown for newcomers only.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring for over 17 years and get excellent results.

Here are some of my verifiable testimonials:


"Matthew is a good Chess tutor and great with kids. My daughter won the school Chess tournament too. He is flexible in arranging lessons which is a bonus given the heavy term time school curriculum."


"Matthew gave my son just 3 one to one Chess coaching sessions in the run up to the National Primary School Chess Championships. He even set homework and looked at my son's games online between sessions. Matthew picked up on how to strengthen the game very quickly and taught some very effective moves. My son went on to do extremely well and moved up a board and beat Haberdashers school for the first time, his nemesis. He said that Matthew had given him confidence and had understood how to improve his game. Matthew's Chess coaching is second to none."


"Just want to thank you for the help and support you provided to our 8 year old in her study of chess. We found you to have a very good understanding of the subject matter. The techniques you taught her such as writing down her moves and being focused have been extremely helpful and we have seen a vast improvement in her understanding of the game.
Thank you so much"

Teaching Approach:

Starting with the basics, including how to move the pieces, special moves and what Checkmate is, as well as all of the tactics. The importance of certain squares will definitely be covered.
