Every player needs a good coach to teach him the ins, outs, and ways of the game. This rings true even in less obvious settings, like chess. A Chinese proverb says, "To know the road ahead, you must ask those who are coming back," and this is what experienced grandmasters and coaches offer. Without a proper chess coach, your chances of ever becoming a skilled, titled, player are limited. While you can try and discover things about the game by yourself through books and playing/analyzing your games, there is still nothing quite like the counsel and hands-on approach of a chess coach. Remember that chess is a competition and your opponents, who themselves are taught and trained by good coaches are out to beat you with their inside knowledge.

The question remains: how do you find a good chess coach without burning a hole in your pocket?-and as with most things these days, the answer to this question is - online chess coach and classes.

There are plenty of competitively priced online chess classes that you can choose from, whether you are looking for a chess beginners program or something more advanced to fit your skill level. When seeking out an online chess coach, look for the following things:

  • A coach who takes time to analyze games and identify areas that you need to work on the most.
  • A coach who develops an individual training plan to best fit your needs.
  • Someone with a knack for teaching and isn't merely good at playing chess.
  • A program where you can develop skills through after class exercises on top of your actual lessons.
  • A coach who is willing to answer your questions, checks on your home tasks and provides constructive feedback on your work.
  • Someone who prepares your training sessions and lessons based on an actual training plan, which considering your current needs upon working with you throughout the course of the program.
  • A coach who considers your overall progress, before making corrections in the training plan.
  • Someone who encourages you to participate in tournaments and events.
  • A coach who keeps track not only of your progress, but the current state of chess tournaments, news, tactics, strategies, new tendencies, etc.

With these criteria, you will find it easier to evaluate candidates and programs before deciding the most suitable direction to take as far as your chess career and training is concerned.
