I'm offering very inexpensive chess lessons. I am a strong Class A player (1950 USCF). Send me a private message or email me at "hester [dot] j [at] gmail [dot] com". Choose a time control, and we'll play on the Free Internet Chess Server (www.freechess.org
). After the game we'll go over concepts that you seem to be having trouble with for as long as you like. For now, I will offer this service before receiving payment if you agree to post a review of my services in this thread.
Why buy a chess lesson from me?
I have experience teaching math to both kids and adults. (I can provide a letter of reference from the mother of one of my former students.) This should transfer very easily to chess.
I have a firm grasp of the English language and can explain things clearly.
I type very fast (80+ WPM), so you won't spend much time sitting and waiting.
I'm currently offering very low rates.
1.5 BTC per hour, or 1 BTC per hour if you purchase multiple hours up-front (this offer is valid at any time, even if you have already bought several individual lessons at the higher rate). 10% off individual lessons if you pay up-front.
These rates are subject to change if and when I receive positive reviews.
Feel free to ask any questions in this thread, via PM, or via email.
