Economics student tutoring chess with 8 years of experience playing and 2 years teaching chess

Methodology

I give lessons currently to primary school pupils. I am ambitious and keen to expand to any age level required. I start with the basics and increase the level of difficulty of the lessons whilst ensuring strong foundations. I mix teaching with practice for kids as I have found that is the best way to reinforce ideas learnt.

Experience

I am an Economics student at the University of Warwick who has been playing chess since primary school. I run a 'Chess in Schools' programme at university where I teach twice a week at local primary schools. I am a patient and engaging individual who always puts the pupil's needs first.
