Golden rules : 1.Fun, 2.Instructive, 3.Revisable (I locally record the session to record the screen and audio and send you the file after so you can literally revise the session any time, and any number of times. Also making use of the "study" feature on lichess helps the analysis be reviewed after)
It is very helpful if you have Skype for immediate voice communication.
Whatever method, it is best if both you have a lot of fun and a bit of banter! Life is short! Also I can do a local recording of our training sessions and send you after for later review. As well as this we can use the excellent lichess "study" feature to store any annotations or analysis from your games, again for future reference.
Method #1 Examination of your games
One method is to go over your games, looking for your fundamental mistakes, trying to identify your strengths and weaknesses. We can go over say 2-3 of such games - preferable "classical" lichess games or your Over the board games, where one had time to think and so did the opponent. But if you really want to go over blitz games, that is fine too. In particular I would like to impart you with ideas of "trump cards", weaknesses of last move, "tradeoff theory", and other theoretical ideas I have discussed on my Youtube channel over the years, and how this relates to your current game play.
Method #2 - You play with kingscrusher! (see also Method #6)
You can play unrated against others with increment and we can discuss moves and strategies to try and get you thinking on potentially more effective concepts. I can send you local recording after as well. See also Method #6 in this regard.
Method #3 - You create a lichess "study" - or with me, and we annotate your games of interest or positions of interest. You then have a stored reference you can go back to later. Or if you prefer I can host the study, and give you the PGN later.
Method #4 - We go over puzzle positions together. Tactics are very important for any player to get good at as they basically win games. There is no point having great look positions if you can't convert them into wins via tactical means. I will try and reinforce the logical mechanics behind finding key combinations and what pointers and clues to give yourself to help find the crucial forcing moves. I see it that humans are fundamentally weak compared to say computers in tactics, and that we need to maximise our use of our human "trump cards" - particularly the "eye for combinations" and I will show you a spectrum of pointers to maximise this tactical intuition whist doing concrete puzzle exercices.
Method #5 Video annotation of your "studies"
If you create a "study" here on lichess with say 5 chapters where each game is a chapter, i can send you a video annotation at my same rate of US 40 Dollars per hour of video I send you. So say you pay me for 2 hours in advance, and I only send you a 40 minute file, then I still owe you 1 hour 20 of video annotation. So you can send another study later.
Method #6 (especially interesting if you are a twitch or youtuber!)
Play me for an hour and I will record the commentary locally to send you after!
You can have a benefit for promotion/marketing/training/instruction if you are a twitcher/youtuber - I can send you a file after of us playing for an hour, and you can use this file for your own youtube channel or twitch channel. www.twitch.tv/custom_mods
was my first experience of this and he streamed the file after, and also kindly gave me permission for use on my own youtube channel.
