GM Moranda is a very knowledgeable and wise teacher. He has a very deep knowledge of the game and is determined to pull the best out of you. He likes to locate where strategically and tactically you may be lacking and focus specifically on making those skills better. His knowledge of every part of the game translates into a well rounded player that teaches a well rounded game. He is a great choice for your chess coach.
Mr. Moranda is a one-of-a-kind coach who helped me see things that I hadn't even thought of before. The classes are extremely well prepared and help not only to fix even the most invisible weaknesses, but also to strengthen the best sides of the player. Incredible knowledge about openings combined with great tips on both tactics and strategy, as well as an in-depth analysis of your games, allows you to develop in all possible directions. I definitely recommend starting this journey to anyone who is stuck with their chess development - you will not find a better place to help you move on and reach the heights of your skills!
I am a 1500 rated player having lessons with GM Moranda for the last 18 months, who has got back into playing chess some 40 years after learning when I was a child. Needless to say, I am probably not as quick as younger players but Wojciech is simply fantastic in explaining things and is very patient too. He is always punctual for our lessons and every lesson adds more firepower to my game. Between lessons he is always available to answer any questions I may have and replies to my emails promptly. A totally dedicated professional who I am proud of to have as my coach.
I am a 2350 rated player who has taken lessons from many different GMs in the past, but have been working with GM Moranda exclusively for the past year. None of the past coaches have been as prepared, dedicated, and communicative as GM Moranda. He has found some extremely creative and original opening lines that are all extensively computer verified and he is more than willing to share them with his students. I think these lines alone are worth the price of his lessons.
GM Moranda is a very practical coach who is not interested in things like memorizing tablebases or solving highly abstract chess problems. He prefers to challenge his students with interesting and highly practical studies from real games. It is clear that his goal is to raise the ELO of his students as fast as possible.
Finally, his analysis of your games is extremely informative. It is clear that he analyzes each of your games with care - for example he will highlight moves that the computer does not mark as blunders because these are impractical moves which lead you to a tough practical position even if they are not technically wrong according to the computer. I feel that his insight into my games has made me a much more rounded and thoughtful player and I am certain that he will take me to the IM level in the near future.
I have now been taking lessons regularily for two month and I can say that GM Moranda is an excellent teacher that I highly recommend. Very attentive, motivated and endowed with an excellent pedagogy, he perfectly adapts his lessons to the student's needs and follows rigorously the difficulties met, and the progresses that are made. A pleasure to work with him !
I have been taking lessons with GM Moranda lately and i can say he is a splendid coach. Every lesson is interesting and well prepared. Mr Moranda's knowledge about openings is just impressive.

I've been training with GM Moranda for almost a year and since we have started I won many Elos and I finally understand what I need to do in a chess game. He's a great trainer and it's worth trying him out.
Ein ausgezeichneter Trainer, den ich wärmstens empfehlen kann für alle, die an der Verbesserung ihrer Spielstärke ernsthaft interessiert sind. GM Moranda kann auf langjährige Erfahrung als Spieler und Trainer (u.a. für die polnische Nationalmannschaft der Frauen) zurückgreifen. Bei jedem neuen Schüler untersucht er zunächst gründlich die Partien und stellt anhand von ihnen eine Diagnose bzgl. der Stärken und Schwächen mit einem entsprechenden Trainingsprogramm für den Spieler aus. Das Programm wird garantiert perfekt auf Ihre Bedürfnisse zugeschnitten sein (keine Massenware!). Generell kann ich sagen, dass GM Moranda seine Schüler individuell behandelt und sich immer sehr stark einbringt, wodurch die Lektionen mit ihm immer sehr interessant sind und die Zeit schnell verfliegt😊. Es schadet sicher auch nicht, dass er ein angenehmer Zeitgenosse ist, der Schach aufrichtig liebt und dessen Enthusiasmus sehr ansteckend ist. Darüber hinaus kann man ihm jederzeit schachbezogene Fragen stellen (wirklich, auch außerhalb der Trainingszeiten), die immer prompt beantwortet werden.
GM Moranda is one of the best coaches ever. He loves the game of chess very much and he also shares his love with his students. He is proficient in every part of chess and he has helped me expand my opening repertoire. He can also teach just about anything in chess including tactics, counterplay, strategy, etc. He uses his experience and knowledge to help students identify and improve the parts of their chess that need help. I would recommend him for anyone who wants to learn or improve their chess.

The main advantages of Grandmaster Moranda are openings preparation and improvement of your thinking process.
For anyone who wants to reach the heights of their abilities, I recommend working with Grandmaster Wojciech Moranda.
Wojciech is not only a great teacher but also a good friend with a brilliant sense of humor. After only a few lessons I was easily able to get above 1000 and it's only going up from here.
I’m a 2150 rated player from Germany and I’m working with Mr. Moranda for three months now. During my journey to get better in chess I had worked with a lot of different coaches, but Mr. Moranda is definitely one of or maybe the best.

GM Moranda challenges the student to think in different ways which leads to deeper levels of understanding.
The lessons flow as smooth as a Frederic Chopin piano piece.

GM Wojciech Moranda jest świetnym trenerem. Pracuję z nim od miesiąca, a turniej rozegrany po naszych pierwszych spotkaniach przyniósł mi +50 FIDE (mam 2200). Na zajęciach porusza ciekawe tematy i zagadnienia. Ma oryginalne spojrzenie na szachy. Jest człowiekiem o wysokiej kulturze osobistej, zawsze radosny i pomocny. Polecam trenera Wojciecha każdemu, kto chce rozwinąć swój warsztat szachowy.

I'm a 1800 rated player from Switzerland and I'm working with Wojciech for one month now. I'm absolutely amazed by his skill and love for the game aswell as his incredible professionalism and dedication when it comes to teaching. Wojciech really cares for my chess and my progress, he suggested a detailed training plan and training routine for me in the beginning including books on topics where I need to improve the most, on a level that i understand well and that are exciting and fun to work through. Wojciech is able to tell me exactly where my bad habits are and how i can get rid of them, this is extremly inspiring and motivating to work on my chess. I can always send him my tournament games and get a detailed Grandmaster Analysis of it in no time. The lessons are a really fun and challanging too, lately i was supposed to say everything i think out loud, from the first moment i saw the position until the moment i decided for a move. After I did that, he showed me what I missed, what principles and ideas I could follow and how he approaches the position himself. Honestly, I've never expected such a level of support by a chess teacher. Wojciech is also an active chess player and it's great fun to follow his games against top Grandmasters, i also get cool insider information and stories of the world of elite chess :). I know that I have the best possible support with him as a teacher on my chess journey and i'm very greatful and honored to be his student.
