Welcome to the Chess Coaching page!
Finding a good chess coach is a very tiring process. We are here to help you.
I am FIDE Master Nikhil Dixit (FIDE Profile Link)
I have 4 International Master norms and a peak FIDE Rating of 2368. I am an active chess player and a chess coach.
I started this website with the intention of providing high-quality chess knowledge, and I am happy that 10-15k people are enjoying it. While I was not planning to add any coaching services, I got multiple emails regarding chess coaching enquiries.
Because of this, I decided to start a personalized chess coaching service.
Who can apply?
We are currently focusing on quality and not quantity. This is why we are accepting limited students who are focused and really have a passion for chess.
There is no age limit for chess, and hence, anyone can fill out the form. The following are a few things to consider
- Passion about chess
- Have weekly 7-8 hours for chess practice
We have some of the best chess coaches who are active players also.
The minimum coach rating is 1800 (FIDE Rating). We always believe in quality over quantity.
Most of the coaches are 2000 above FIDE-rated players, including FIDE Masters and International Masters. Our coaches are from India, and hence, we can teach in the following languages.
We will assign you a chess coach according to your rating and requirements, which you have filled in the form.
Pricing and Fees
This is the most important factor for most of the parents. As we have already mentioned, this is a premium service, and hence, pricing is higher than expected.
Our coaches are highly experienced chess players.
The pricing starts from $20 per hour to $60 per hour.
Once you fill out the form, you will receive package details, which include a fixed number of classes in a month and also a few playing practice sessions.
Our Package is customized according to students’ needs. Here is an example
- Monthly Classes – 8 (Weekly 2)
- Monthly Playing sessions – 4 with titled players
How are classes conducted?
We prefer Zoom as it is the easiest way to join meetings and share screens and files. Although, if Zoom is not supported, we can use Skype or Google Meet.
To teach chess, we use various tools, including Chessbase, Chesscom website, Lichess website, etc.
Is growth confirmed?
If someone is claiming this, they are fake! No one can increase their rating without a self-study. Coach and other factors accounted for 20-30%. The remaining part must be done by the student.
To grow in chess, students must spend a few hours a week.
Our coaches will help students to grow by providing feedback and homework.
Also, chess growth is a long-term process and works both ways. Students and coaches should believe each other.
