Top Chess Lessons related questions

What are the benefits of hiring a chess coach?

A chess coach or chess tutor can speed up your chess improvement. What’s more, a chess coach can help increase or correct your knowledge. One-on-one classes are an effective way to learn good training and thinking habits. For example, a chess coach can develop your opening repertoire and teach you endgame strategies. Online videos, books, and apps can help you learn chess. But a chess coach can better guide you on learning materials appropriate to your level and objectives.

How do I book a chess tutor on Airtasker?

Put up a task to explain your needs, be it online or in-person chess lessons. Also, it helps to mention your skill level and reason for learning chess. Once you put up a task, get offers from chess tutors near you and consult their profiles. You may also discuss further details in the public comments section of the task page. After assigning the task, you’ll be able to chat privately with your Tasker and schedule your lessons. 

What qualities should I look for in a good chess tutor?

A competent chess tutor should be a good communicator with a professional work ethic. Also, the chess tutor should be capable of teaching chess at your skill level. Furthermore, your chess coach should be strong enough to teach you the principles and skills you should know at your level. The bottom line is, the stronger you are at chess, the stronger your coach should be. Our ratings and reviews system, as well as task comments, can help you assess a coach’s qualifications. 

How many sessions can I book with a chess tutor?

You can book as many sessions as you need on our platform. Feel free to book a one-off chess lesson if you prefer to feel things out and see if you like a chess tutor’s teaching style. Or book several chess lessons with one Tasker. You can then schedule private chess lessons a few times a week at your most convenient time. 

Can I book online chess lessons?

Yes, both online chess lessons and in-person tuition are available on Airtasker. You can have your chess lessons online over a video conferencing platform. This setup is ideal if you have a busy schedule or if your chess tutor lives far away from your location. As for in-person chess lessons, you can do the sessions in your home or at your teacher’s location. 

How much do chess lessons cost?

Chess lesson rates vary depending on the setup (online or in-person), the number of lessons, and the objective of the chess lessons. The rate will depend on whether you’re learning chess for fun or prepping for a tournament. Either way, you can set your budget on our platform. We’ll then connect you with available chess tutors who may work around your budget or quote a reasonable rate for your request.

What do chess lessons include?

Find chess lessons for any level and age. Our platform connects you with experienced chess tutors near you. This way, you can learn the game and improve your playing skills in no time. 

Individual chess lessons are a great way to speed up your learning and refine your chess skills. And we offer an efficient way to find qualified chess tutors within your budget. Here are the different types of chess lessons you can book on Airtasker. 

Chess lessons for beginners

Are you a complete beginner in chess, or do you only know the basics? Beginner chess lessons can teach you the fundamentals, including the rules and how to move the pieces. Your chess tutor can also teach you practical skills like capturing pieces, finding checkmates, and winning the game. With your chess tutor’s help, you’ll be able to play a full chess game in no time. 

While chess lessons develop your mind, exercise can develop your body. If you’re keen on other personal development activities, a personal trainer can help you get in shape. Meanwhile, a nutritionist can provide you with custom meal planning. Healthy eating can then be much easier with a home chef to prep your meals for the week! 

Advanced chess lessons 

If you already know how to play chess, perhaps it’s time for advanced chess lessons. Broaden your knowledge or prep for a competition with a qualified chess tutor. Take your chess skills to the next level with endgame principles and tactics. Or build your confidence by learning how to read the whole board and decide on the best plan. 

While you work on your chess skills, you may also want to hire a Tasker to coach you through essay writing and keeping up with academic requirements. If you have a passion for teaching, you may also book chess teaching lessons before you start conducting chess lessons yourself.  

Chess lessons for adults

Rekindling your love of chess, or never got around to learning how to play the game? In any case, our platform helps you find chess lessons for adults, no matter your skill level. Adult chess lessons range from beginner to intermediate lessons. Our platform lets you book chess lessons as many times as you want, so you can find the right instructor for you.

Chess lessons for kids

Chess lessons for kids are a fun and engaging way to exercise a child’s brain in their formative years. Children as young as 5 years old can learn chess. Find chess tutors for children in your local area, and introduce your little one to the enchanting world of kings, queens, knights, and bishops. 

There are plenty of chess tutors equipped to teach kids the basics of chess and simple checkmate tactics. Your experienced chess coach can also prepare your child for local and international level competitions. While your child hones their thinking skills, they can develop their fine motor skills with fun outdoor play at the same time.
