Teaching experience

I've been coaching for a couple of years, in life as well as online. I think every student has to be approached in a unique way. I've also been not only a coach, but also an author of articles devoted to numerous topics on chess improvement.

Other experiences

I've been studying interpreting, so I speak fluently Russian, Ukrainian, English, and my French is also improving every day.

Teaching methodology

During the lesson we will analyze student's games so as to find out typical mistakes and avoid them in future, also we'll study classical famous games, improve the opening repertoire as well as positional skills and calculation ability
