An experienced coach, aka sherlok7 ( you can contact me at I have given lessons and conducted master-classes all over Europe and North America. I live in Edmonton, Canada. Apart from chess, I specialize in writing and translating.

26 years of honing a teaching system I had developed.

Best skills

Chess is a logical game, and it's logic that is I help my students to develop and put to good use.

Teaching methodology

Chess pieces is all we have as players - so I teach to understand the pieces and their needs.
If you give them what they need, they will be grateful and reward you with precious points.
