About me

I'm a 26 years old GM from Hungary, rated 2535. /

Playing experience

I won 10 Hungarian youth championships, 3 classical,6 rapid, 1 blitz. With Hungary we won the European youth team championship in 2009 and finished second at the world U-16 chess olympiad in 2007. I finished 3rd in two Hungarian Championships, and also won some strong opens, eg. Paracin 2012, Spring Festival 2014. I'm working alone since age 15, and I became a grandmaster at 19. My best rating so far was 2578.

Teaching experience

I was the second of Richard Rapport for about a year, and a sparring partner of Benjamin Gledura.

Best skills

It's not for me to judge, but what I think may be important, that I'm quite a lot on Skype, so most of the time I'm able to help you with some little things with your questions/problems even in the days, we are not training.

Teaching methodology

First, I look at the recent games of the student, identify his/her mistakes and then make specific lessons and exercises to improve those. Lessons are via Skype and the excellent lichess study feature. Between the lessons the students can always ask all kind of questions on Skype.
