Teaching experience

I work as a chess coach for five years.My biggest successes as a coach are two gold medals on Swiss Championship U12 and U16, two beautiful girls,and also second place of my student from Montenegro,U14.

Other experiences

I am big sports lover !

Best skills

I don't have best skills,just you have to work every day ! To be consistent not only in chess,in everything !

Teaching methodology

1 hour a day is enough,but you have to work every day !
My advice is 30 min solving puzzles to refresh your head,than in agreement with your coach obligatory work is on endgames and on calculation ! All depends of level but you have always to work ond endgames and on calculation,if you are amateur player than big attention is on strategic motives ! Big mistake is to work hard on openings until you reach some decent chess level !
