    Best skills: -Lessons based on individual weaknesses -Analytical skills -Openings -Utilizing modern tools (internet, databases)
    Teaching methodology: Student should send me at least 10 games of his/her game (classic, rapid or blitz) or nickname in some chess website where he/she was playing so I will find games to see mistakes and based lessons on it ( for example lessons can be basic, intermediate or advanced endgames, how to make plan in simple or in complicated position, position estimate based on key factors, tactic , pawn structures , bad and good pieces, motifs that often occur... it all depends on the level of student). The other option is to play a couple of games with a student and then analyze the games. Everything we did in class, homework and additional material are given after every class. I hold lessons through Skype (Screen Sharing).
