« Perfect! Vladimir is a very enthusiastic and informative coach. Before our first lesson he was very keen to find what kind of player I was and had asked I send him over some games that I had played recently. He then found a time that suited us both. I will state that all of his replies to e-mails are both timely and instructive. We met up using Skype and while there were some early technical issues (which I put no fault on Vladimir as we were able to see and hear each other easily enough), we were able to make a good start. The lesson covered all 5 games that I had sent him and between us we analysed each game for tactics, general strategies (and the avoidance of a couple of embarrassing blunders!). As the early Skype technical issues had taken some time at the start of our lesson (approximately 8 minutes at most - throughout the hour’s lesson), Vladimir was insistent that we go over the hour period and complete all the games that I had sent him, this was approximately 1hour 35minues, which I felt was above-and-beyond service. I would recommend Vladimir to anybody who has an interest in Chess and look forward to our next lesson together! »

Excellent! Good assessment of current level and thorough analysis of games played. Vladimir also sets exercises to complete in the student's own time.

Perfect! Vladimir is an extremely experienced player and teacher, something which comes across clearly in his lessons. In our first session, he quickly evaluated my level, and we progressed to look at tactical puzzles which targetted my weaknesses. I feel lucky to be learning from such a master!
