Private chess tutoring offers students the undivided attention of the instructor. This gives the chess instructor flexibilty to work with the individual student at their own pace.
This is especially helpful for chess beginners, as this will help them wrap their mind around the nuances of the game, before participating in higher stress group chess activities.
If the student is a child, private chess instruction usually takes place in the home, and therefore has an added comfort level for parents and student. It is also a good way for parents to get aquainted with our teaching techniques, since typically one or both parents are home.
For tournament players, private chess lessons can help them get their mind focused, help them sharpen their skills, and get prepared for an upcoming event.
