By sharing a chess board online and with a voice/video chat through Skype during training sessions, the coach shows does a 60 minute session split between puzzle training and examples from games played by masters based on different themes. A student gets enough time to think and try his/her ideas with the coach. Lessons are carefully planned for different areas of the game like opening repertoire, calculation, evaluation of the position, planning and endings.

Game Practice vs Coach:
The coach dedicates some classes towards playing practice games with the student and helps by suggesting moves and explaining idea’s during critical positions.
