Chess Lessons with an Experienced Chess Teacher

Chess lessons can be very beneficial

Some people may wonder, "why chess is such a popular game?". There are a few reasons for that. First, it is one of the most complex games in the world. There are millions of possibilities just in one chess game and it has proved impossible to find a chess move that would always win. Second, there is almost no luck in chess. Everything depends on the player and their decisions. Third, chess can have a lot of benefits for those playing it. It develops your logic and other cognitive skills, boosts your concentration and trains you to be patient.

ย 

Considering all the positive effects of playing chess, a lot of people decide to teach the game to their kids and numerous students in Australia take chess lessons at school. They learn to calculate variations and analyse their opponent's decisions which stimulates their brain activity. Children who practise chess often achieve better results in scientific school subjects like physics or mathematics and more easily succeed in other games.

ย 

Due to its popularity, there are various places to practice chess in Australia. Those who want to meet new opponents can join a chess club in their city, enjoy the game online or even take part in a tournament. In large cities like Melbourne or Sydney, you can often find chess tables in city parks and practice chess with other people in the open air. Finally, there is the option to play chess remotely by email. The players using this format have chessboards with the game by their side and send each other their moves in written form.

Take private lessons and play chess better

As chess is an extremely complex game, it may take years before you can perform at a good level. Whether you play in a club or online or take chess lessons at school, it can be a good idea to boost your skills by taking private lessons. Chess coaching is a very efficient way to learn about different tactics and start using them in your game to boost your Elo rating.

ย 

On top of that, it's very easy to get in contact with a chess tutor in Australia. There are a lot of good chess players living in Melbourne, Sydney and other cities who can share their knowledge with you or your kids. You can find a good private tutor by sending an email to a chess school or by using Superprof.

ย 

You may wonder how a chess teacher can help you. Indeed, some people think that getting good at chess is only about a lot of practice and so they just practise as much as possible online or in a club. However, you cannot effectively progress in chess this way. Through centuries chess grandmasters have been developing chess theory to improve their game. Without knowing at least the basics of that theory, it'll be simply impossible to win against any more or less serious opponent. So, what exactly can students in Australia learn during their chess lessons?

What you can learn during chess classes

Whether they are kids or adults, chess students need to learn certain theories so they can win the most difficult games. First of all, a good chess player should know at least several openings. An opening is how you start your game. Someone who knows what moves are better can easily get an edge over the opponent from the start and then win the game. Whether you study chess at school or take private lessons, you'll necessarily look at some most famous openings. You can then practise them in your games online or in a chess club.

ย 

After losing chess it is extremely important to know what went wrong. This is where coaching can be very useful. If you contact an experienced private tutor, they'll help you analyse your past games and point out your mistakes. At the same time, you'll also study the games of other great chess players. The advantage of having a coach is that they can explain each move to you, so you'll be able to understand the champions' thinking. After several lessons, you'll have a different view on chess and start seeing hidden strategic motives behind apparently simple moves.

ย 

Finally, the most important activity when learning chess is solving problems. Chess problems are positions taken from other games in which you have to find the best possible move. Both children and adults looking to boost their level need to do it. Problems are the most effective way to improve the player's tactical thinking and start finding winning moves in their own positions. If you study chess with a tutor you can ask them to send you problems by email and train between the classes. Your coach will know what problems suit your level so your training will be efficient. Next time you play chess online or in your local club, you'll certainly see a real difference.
