Languages: English, Russian, Hebrew.

I have wide experience in teaching chess to all levels and ages on-line and in real life. Also I firmly believe in individual approach to each player and try to focus on and improve one's weaknesses, mainly through analyzing his/her games and learning from his/her mistakes. Of course, other aspects of the player's game are also improved upon necessity.

Being an IM (international master) and a former Europe youth champion, I have considerable chess knowledge and more importantly - teaching ability and a way to put complex things and ideas into simple words. The lessons are usually conducted in ICC, and optionally, Skype / other voice or instant messaging apps + WebCam, and from my experience, the best timeframe is two hours each lesson, once or twice a week.

The rates are flexible and negotiable and also depend on the payment method. Usually, we reach a mutually beneficial agreement.

I have a flexible schedule, and available to teach during many times.

Feel free to contact me, if you are interested. Send me a private message here or email me to kundin@zahav.net.il.
