About the lesson

My approach is student-centered, I am teaching both children and adults. I am patient, friendly, and understanding and trying to make sure that the student feels comfortable and enjoys the lesson, and gains confidence in the subject. I am also organising chess tournaments for my young chess students to monitor their progress and plan future curriculum. Currently, I am conducting only online lessons via skype/zoom and lichess chess platform.

About Madara

I have 27 years of experience playing chess, I am a candidate master of Latvia, having an international (FIDE) rating of 2063, and English Chess Federation (ECF) rating of 2125 in Classical/slow chess, which is quite a good level. My recent best achievement is becoming the 1st in London Classic Women and Girls Rapidplay 2019.

I have graduated from Riga Chess School (which I attended from 1993 to 2009) and am holding a professional education degree in Chess.
I was teaching chess to primary school children and tutoring some adults back in Latvia for many years, and I enjoyed it very much. Since 2016 I have been tutoring many children and adults in London, UK, and online, and helped to progress them in chess and some of them gained good achievements in chess tournaments and were qualified for the next competitions (e.g. Gigafinal, London Junior Chess Championships).

I can teach basic concepts, moves, strategies, and tactics for beginners and help to improve the game technique of intermediate and advanced players, suggesting the theory and winning game plans, training thinking ahead and calculation skills, and many more.

    When did you start practicing? How did this passion find you?

    I started to practice playing chess at the age of 6 as my school had chess in the regular curriculum and I also enrolled in the chess club.

I loved to go to chess tournaments and camps and particularly enjoyed trips abroad to represent my country internationally.
