Passionate chess player, willing to teach chess (beginner and intermediate levels) to those curious about this fascinating game

Methodology

My main goal is to make people aware of the sophisticated beauty of chess. Thus, I never want to make my students feel overwhelmed; on the opposite, I want to stimulate their intellectual curiosity and motivate them by presenting chess as a challenge. After the first lessons, I become familiar with my student's strengths and weaknesses and create an action plan. When it comes to intermediate players, I cover openings, middlegames and endgames to help the students improve. When it comes to beginners, I go all the way to the basics in a fun, engaging way.

Experience

I have been playing chess competitively for more than 5 years. I have participated in several international competitions, such as World Youth Chess Championship. My current ELO (FIDE) for standard chess is 2057 and I am a Woman Candidate Master (WCM). I have previous teaching experience (taught middle school kids how to play chess - I love working with kids!). I am fluent in English. I study Computer Science at University College London.

Jessica

Perfect! Maria is an exceptionally talented chess teacher. My daughter adores her lessons and is quickly gaining a strong foundation while having loads of fun. Maria continually challenges her yet manages to keep their time together light and engaging so my daughter finishes each lesson with a huge smile, eager for their next game! Highly recommended.

Daniel

Perfect! Maria is a wonderful chess teacher. She's kind, patient and an excellent communicator. She's been teaching my 6-year-old daughter for several months now, first face to face and then online due to the COVID-19 pandemic. My daughter absolutely loves her lessons, which are fun and varied, and she is now in love with chess. I could not recommend Maria more highly.

H
Harry

Perfect! I bought chess lesssons for my brother. He told me he had an excellent time and that Maria was a superb teacher. Would definitely recommend.
