National Chess champion, who is willing to kindly share his knowledge to help aspiring chess players reach their fullest potential.

Methodology

Initially, I would require several recent games played for both white and black to identify weaknesses and strengths of the student. I am also more than happy to teach complete beginners

Later I would make a course which is tailored to the level of play.

This includes a systematic guide in learning endgames.
Understanding middlegames ideas
Finding the suitable opening which is compatible with the style of chess of the student.

Experience

I am studying Law at the University of Leeds. Originally from Malaysia. I participated in numerous international chess tournaments, the World Junior Championship being my biggest I’ve joined by far.

I incorporate my teaching experience in Additional Mathematics and combine it with my chess skills to provide a structured learning experience to absorb content effectively.

Bernard is a dedicated and diligent individual who has a passion for helping people. His tutoring style focuses on exposing weaknesses and generating counter-measures for the improvement of your game. He tailors his tutoring style suited for different individuals based on their abilities, potential and personality in providing the most optimum and effective results. He is a passionate individual who doesn't just teach you as an obligation but out of a deep passion to improve your overall technique, mentality and morale in a chess game.

Bernard is a friendly and approachable tutor, who adopts a systematic approach to teaching chess. With this approach, he helps you to constantly improve and grow as a chess player. He has helped me improve a tremendous amount in a small space of time.

I met him through my university chess club and he started giving me chess lessons when I noticed he was a very strong chess player and he was a natural at teaching chess. I started out at around 120 ELO and I am now consistently performing in the 150-160 ELO range after just a few months of his tutoring. I would highly recommend him as a chess tutor.

I've found Bernard on Superprof, in search for a chess coach. He is very friendly and certainly knows his stuff. Bernard really enjoys teaching and it shows in every session I have with him. He knows how to explain chess techniques in a simple and enjoyable manner. Without Bernard as my tutor, I would have never gotten to where I am now. I am now one of the best in my university.

Great personality, I would recommend him to anyone who wants to learn or improve his chess skills.
