Find a Chess Trainer to Teach You Chess Opening Strategies and Moves that Win To

Posted by IchessU on March 5th, 2015

Not all chess coaches are created the same. This is why it is very important to find the right fit whenever finding a chess trainer that can truly grow with you as you develop your strategies and learn how to mentally select the best tactics and moves that will best help you win your matches. The following are some of the most important things you should remember when you are searching for a good chess trainer or teacher to teach you not only how to win games but how to love it:

  • A coach's playing strength is one factor to consider. Just like in anything, one cannot teach what he does not know. This is why your coach's knowledge of the game as well as his strength in playing should be an important consideration as you embark on your search.
  • Planning for improvement is also one of the first things you should think about as you start seeking help from a professional coach. Having clear goals and knowing what things you wish to improve, whether it be beating a particular opponent, reaching a certain rating level, or learning chess as a mental exercise. There are many other good reasons to want to improve at chess and choosing one as your basis for learning and choosing a fitting coach should also be a priority.
  • A coach's motivational skills are also an important consideration, whatever the age of the learner. A coach can be the most skilled chess player in the world, but without motivational skills, their technical knowledge of the game can do little to actually teach a student and help him reach his potential.
  • Find a trainer that has unique approaches in helping you prepare for your games and tournaments. At the same time, choose one that will encourage you to be better every step of the way, so you don't only learn, but actually grow with the sport. This also helps build trust between teacher and student and strengthens the relationship.
  • Patience is also another quality to look for in a chess mentor, as this makes or break your ability to absorb what is being taught. Patient mentors know how teaching principles, particularly difficult once may require endless repetitions until his student catches on.
  • A good chess trainer also knows when to push hard and when to back off to help students reach their full potential.
