If you're a self-taught chess player that's hit a plateau, and are looking for a coach that's knowledgeable, a good listener, and knows how to help you grow from where you currently are - I'd highly recommend Jameson.

He doesn't spoonfeed you concepts, but instead shows just enough and allows you to work them out yourself, which is how I prefer to learn anyway. Also, he carefully looks over your games to find patterns, areas of improvement, and the habits that are leading to your victories or defeats.

He's not just a knowledgeable chess player, it's clear that he's an experienced chess coach.

So here are the steps that I took the second time around that got me to where I am now, and some ways you can improve your ches …

Chess Rules: a Step-by-Step Guide for Beginners
