About me

My name is Jason Stanleigh Davies. I am a fulltime chess coach and streamer on Twitch (
I started a chess academy called "The Next Move Chess Academy" in 2011 and have since then basically moved it online completely. I am from South Africa but would be happy to live anywhere!

Playing experience

I have won numerous tournaments in my country including finishing with 8/9 in the last tournament I played in 2014 with a performance of 2485! I do intend to start playing OTB tournaments again in 2018.

Teaching experience

I have been coaching for over 15 years and have coached hundreds of students who have all had quite some success in some way or form in the game. My whole training program is based on the FIDE Trainers Titles and is very organized and streamlined to easily help you from point A to B.

Best skills

I am very good at getting beginners up to a solid 1600 to 1800 level. I specialize in systematically taking you through the levels of improvement based on the FIDE standard of Coaching. My favorite students are beginners because they do not have bad habits yet :)
