We'd connect online via Skype. I'd assess your current level and tailor my coaching based on your needs. Everything from the basics, fundamentals, opening/middlegame/endgames, tactics and strategy. I can review your games and focus on your weaknesses. I can also suggest areas for you to improve - either via continued lessons with me, or as a list of items for you to take away and study on your own (or both!). I can recommend books or other content if needed.
I’m in the the 99.5th percentile of Rapid Players on chess.com, and the 95th percentile for Blitz Players (You can check out my progress on my profile, "Kraig" on chess.com).
I reached this level after starting in 2019 rated around 600 in each category. Having improved quickly, I know which topics give the best “bang for buck” to improve fast!
I can teach you the main principles of the opening, middlegame and endgame, cover tactics and review your games to offer you specific feedback on your play, as well as specific areas for you to study further (either with me in future lessons, or offline on your own with video/book recommendations).
During the course of my improvement, I've received coaching from a candidate master, from a well known International Master and a Grandmaster and understand the value and impact good coaching can have on your quick development.
