Personal Description:

I am a qualified teacher (PGCE) and involved in the world of chess since my early teens. At the age of 19 I founded a chess club and been its chairman for 27 months. Besides having taught chess (see next section) I have been a chess arbiter, events organiser, clubs' captain and member of the board of trustees of the Lombard Region Committee. I have a great passion for chess and I have written for all three major Italian chess magazines (paper format) as well as collaborating with a famous chess blog. I have been three times Welsh champion of my category and once vice-Italian champion and I have won tournaments in Italy, England, Wales, Spain, Poland and played in other European countries too such as France and Germany.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught chess, since the very early nineties, in primaries and secondaries schools, besides in several chess clubs. I am still teaching chess in primaries and secondaries schools and teaching chess campuses over summer or weekends. Overall I have taught chess in Italy, England, Wales and Spain. I am also a qualified teacher (PGCE) and, moreover, I have successfully passed a theoretical and practical course for chess tutors run by the Basque Chess Federation and, more recently, a similar one for the Italian Federation.

Teaching Approach:

In a one to one chess lesson, I target my teaching style to what is required and wanted by the client. In general I try to make the learning quite interactive and engaging for the student. Many of the resources I use are own devised, targeted for that particular student but I also borrow from a variety of chess books.
I offer tuition in strategy, tactics, middle-game, end-game and, I also offer help in creating an opining repertoire that would fit with the individual style of the pupil.
