Improve Your Game Rapidly

Private classes is particularly useful for players who wish to improve their game rapidly, or for those who are already at a strong level and need help with particular topics such as openings, middle and endgame strategies or just help analyzing games. A private coach can assist in choosing and developing an opening repertoire, depending on the student's style of play, explaining typical tactical and strategically themes involved, and also possible plans for the middle game for both colors. Private coaching is also an ideal setting for the student to ask questions, in which the coach can cater for their individual needs.

Students are encouraged to write down their moves in competition games, so that the coach can analyze their games in detail. This is extremely helpful for improving a student's standard of play, as the coach can identify and explain strengths and weaknesses in the student's play, so that both coach and student are aware of which areas need further development to become a more complete chess player. Homework is given after each lesson to compliment the lessons.

Coaching at your home can be arranged upon request. The hours of private classes at the BCA are much more flexible, however home coaching is based on availability and need to be booked in advance.

Internet coaching is also an option, where a coach and student arrange to meet online at a particular time and chess server. This would require downloading a graphical chess interface to assist with coaching.

Private lessons include an initial assessment where the Coach will determine the player's strengths and weaknesses, and then custom tailor a lesson plan to suit the player's needs.

Lessons are priced based on the player's rating to reflect the depth of preparation required for players of different strengths. Our coaches have years of experience and are eager and ready to bring your game to the next level, no matter your rating.
