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.
One of our best tutors! High-quality profile, qualifications verified and response guaranteed. Madara will plan your first lesson with care.
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 190 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.
The first lesson is free and lasts 30 minutes in order to assess the student's level and plan future lesson curriculum and schedule.
Excellent! Great first lesson. My tech platform could improve
Perfect! Madara is a great teacher. My 5 years old niece has loved her chess classes with her. I totally recommend her
Excellent! Our child enjoys the learning and Madara has been very patience and kind to the child. We really like her to come.
Madara is an amazing chess tutor. She has taught all three of my children who continue to excel in chess. She is patient and children love her.
Madara is a very passionate and professional chess tutor and a very strong chess player herself. She is very good and patient with young kids helping to unlock their potential and rapidly progress in chess. She has a vast experience tutoring kids and adults over the past 7 years, and would strongly recommend her as a chess teacher.
Madara is a Psychologist & also a highly skilled internationally recognised woman chess player/coach & experienced chess tutor who can quickly determine the level & the ability of the student. Then she uses her teaching techniques effectively to meet the student's requirements to make them understand & succeed in their chess career.
Congratulations to her for coaching students who had been performing outstandingly well during the current Mega finals & Giga finals chess tournaments.
Madara is a very experienced & highly qualified tutor who put in a lot of effort & care to guide her students to pass. Every day, she is there before the lesson starts, very reliable. I recommend her being the best psychology tutor, soon to be the best on Superprof.
