Information About Paul - Salford teacher
This is how 2 referees rated Paul:
I am an experienced chess player with a wide knowledge of the game. My work has often involved teaching and training of one form or another and my qualifications include degrees in psychology and cognitive science, as well as a PGCE. Since 2012, I have been teaching chess in schools for CSC, the UK's leading educational chess charity.
I agree with Botvinnik’s judgement that chess is the art of logic and that, as such, it can play a valuable role in developing children’s thinking skills, as well as being an interest that will enrich their lives well into the future. For adults, chess is a fascinating and rewarding hobby.
Currently I also teach functional English and mathematics to adults. Outside of chess and teaching, I have a wide interest in the arts, with a particular, long-standing one being Oulipian literature.
I have over twenty years' teaching experience. As well as chess, I also teach English, mathematics and ICT to adults.
My approach is tailored to the individual. I aim to make it enjoyable and entertaining as well as methodical and effective. On a practical note, I can either travel to the learner or teach in a central Manchester location.
