« My son has been taking lessons from Vladimir now for about 6 months or so. In that time, my son has reduced the errors he makes, is pointing out better moves I could have made when we are playing each other, and has beaten me on more than one occasion. Thanks to Vladimir, he is excited to play in the local interschool competition, and is doing well. I am seeing an increase in his confidence not only in chess but in his life as well. He looks forward to his lessons from Vladimir each week. Vladimir is a gentleman, who has never made chess feel like a chore. He clearly loves the game, and his enthusiasm is infectious. I am aware that Vladimir coaches people to a high level of chess, but he is equally enthusiastic about coaching people like my son, who does not work as hard as he should at times. His patience and gentle persistence is remarkable. When my son first started lessons with Vladimir, he (my son) was very shy and barely said anything. Now 6 months later, he is asking questions and is not afraid to make suggestions. I look forward to watching my son grow in his chess over the coming years, and will most certainly enjoy watching Vladimir continue to coach him. I highly recommend Vladimir as a chess coach. Whether your child is hoping for chess stardom, or you are just hoping they will develop an enjoyment and basic understanding of the game, Vladimir is able to pitch his lessons to the right level. »

Experienced Chess Coach Online, nationally-certified Candidate Master,a certified chess trainer and a certified chess arbiter.

Methodology

Chess lessons should be FUN, and with me, they are! Thanks to today's technology, chess lessons were really made to be given online! No more wasted time spent on setting and resetting boards, as I will present puzzles, games, and points of entry immediately at your fingertips. I always ask my new students to send me their games. I spend some time for analyzing them and mention their main drawbacks. Then I build up a plan of our work, including improving openings, studying classical games, endgames and more.

Coach Vladimir is everything you want a coach to be. He has been coaching my 8-year-old son for 4 months and it's amazing how far my son's chess has matured in such little time. Coach Vladimir is extremely professional, polite, punctual with his times, dedicated and knows exactly how to deal with little ones. We have finally found the best coach ever and will no doubt highly recommend him to anyone that is looking for quality in a good coach. If there was a 10-star button, I would hit it without a doubt :-)
