FIDE rated chess player gives chess lessons in Pune or online (Through Skype/Hangouts or similar)

Methodology

My name is Tejas Kondedeshmukh and am based in Pune, India. I have an international FIDE chess rating of 2060 and been playing chess since the last 21 years now; my experience of tournament play is around 70 to 80 chess tournaments from State to National level.
I conduct chess classes from beginner to professional level students using chess software along with practical examples to enhance learning. I try to focus on interactions with students during the classes to gauge their understanding and clear their concepts.

Ambassador

One of our best! High-quality profile, qualifications verified and responds during the day. Tejas will plan your first class with care.

Background

I have been conducting chess classes since the last 9 years now and have taught approximately 120-130 students.
Apart from achievements in the field of chess, the teachings have helped many of my students improve their concentration and patience level. Based on the student needs, we customize the teaching style, be it to improve concentration or to become a professional chess player.
Brief summary of my teaching career :
1)Current Student Strength – 52, Online Students -27
2)7 students have active FIDE rating since 2017
3)Teaching students primarily in the UK, US, UAE,Italy,Singapore, New Zealand, Australia and India.
4)I am also working as an Instructor with Classvio online classes ( based out of Singapore) since June 2018 .

Rates

Rate for online classes : ₹1,500/hr
Rate for 5 hours of classes : ₹7,000
Rate for 10 hours of classes : ₹14,000

Details

I prefer webcam lessons using either Skype/Zoom. It makes the teaching more focused and easier to understand. I also teach groups/international students/corporates but the rate specifications are different for that. For international students, the cost is 20 USD/18 GBP/20 EUR per hour, can be negotiated to a certain extent.
In case there are 2 students, the fee for the 2nd student becomes 50%. For example, in case of students from the US, the fee for 1 student is 25 USD; the fee for 2 students is 25 USD + 12.5 USD = 38 USD.
The fees can be negotiated in case students will be enrolling for more than 1 class per week.

Rebecca

Perfect! Tejas is a wonderful teacher and my son has enjoyed his lessons and improved wonderfully under Tejas' guidance. Excellent structure to lessons, easy to communicate with, flexible and a patient teacher, Tejas is excellent! Thanks Tejas, he looks forward to his next lesson! I highly recommend him!

Tejas 's response

Henry's enthusiasm for chess is really infectious! I think we had a good connect right from day 1 and it has been an absolute pleasure taking his lessons. Rebecca has also been very supportive and this motivates me to improve my teaching further.

Jessica

Excellent! I purchased chess lessons for my husband as a gift. Here is my husband's review:

"It has been a pleasure working with Tejas these past few weeks. From our first introductory session, Tejas demonstrated his skills as a teacher to get to know my abilities and needs as a student, which has then informed the structure and flow of the rest of our lessons. From week to week, Tejas challenges me as a student and pushes to break out of my comfort soon and grow as a chess player. I continue to appreciate the homework that I receive from Tejas in between lessons and the fact that he always quickly replies to my messages. I would highly recommend Tejas as a Chess Teacher. "

Perfect! Tejas is a great teacher. His class is well-organized with learning points and chess scenarios. He's well prepared and the class has a good structure, moving from one topic to the next. He's also responsive with my questions and is just a friendly and extremely competent professional to work with. I highly recommend his lessons!

Elisha

Perfect! Tejas started teaching me chess in April 2018. I was a total newcomer to the game & started off with the basics.
Over these 6 months my game has improved quite a lot. Tejas has been a good teacher showing patience during class & ensuring all concepts are understood well.
The homework & occasional tests also help to review the game & concepts taught.
I wish him the best to achieve future success in chess.

Tejas 's response

Elisha has been an extremely enthusiastic learner of the game. She always makes it a point to get her doubts cleared and concepts well understood. It has been a nice and enjoyable experience teaching her and I believe she will master the nuances of the game soon.

Perfect! Tejas is an extremely professional and hard working tutor. He is very friendly and takes his tutoring very seriously. Under his guidance my chess has already improved immensely after just a few lessons. I look forward to do many more lessons with him! I would extremely recommend him.

Tejas 's response

Hi Adriano,
Thank you so much for your feedback. It has motivated me further to strive for excellence. I will see to it that I finetune my teaching further so I can add more value.
Thanks again!!

Krishna

Excellent! Tejas has been coaching my son Krishna since Feb 2018. We have had a good experience till date and the classes are conducted punctually and professionally. The feedback system developed by him of sending the parents a monthly report of what progress has been made has been helpful. We are happy with the classes and hope Tejas maintains the same level of excellence going forwards.

Tejas 's response

Thanks a lot for the feedback!

E
Elitza

Perfect! My son has had a few classes with Tejas until now. We have found Tejas to be very good in promptness of reply, teaching structure and punctuality. A key factor is the fact that he gives regular homework which ensures that there is some chess study throughout the week. I hope he continues in the same way for his future classes and wish him well for his endeavors.

Tejas 's response

I got the opportunity to teach Elitza’s son Jonathan through the SuperProf website. Right from the first class, both of them have been extremely courteous in their behaviour and very co-operative also.
As regards to the classes, Jonathan has been sharp, quickly grasped what has been taught and as of yet never missed completing the self study assignments. I feel the classes are going on well and his game will definitely improve further.

Review from Tejas

QUESTION 01 | 07
What motivates you to teach and why?
Tejas — I love to teach because I feel I am influencing the students positively in some way by enhancing their knowledge. Also, being from a family of teachers, I have always loved teaching as such.
QUESTION 02 | 07
When did you start developing an interest in your subject area?
Tejas — I have been playing chess for as long as I can remember now. Nearly 22 years.
QUESTION 03 | 07
If you had to think of a role model for your work, who do you think of and why?
Tejas — My role model for teaching chess is the American GM Yasser Seirawan. The way in which he makes chess something fun to learn as well as impart knowledge is amazing and truly wonderful.
QUESTION 04 | 07
What is the biggest obstacle you had to overcome in mastering your craft?
Tejas — I won't say that I am a master of my craft but am trying to be anyway. The biggest obstacle which I have faced is probably preempting what the student might not understand a particular topic and prepare accordingly. The key for me is trying to answer the question the way in which the student understands.
QUESTION 05 | 07
In your opinion, what makes someone excel in your subject area?
Tejas — I think a lot of hard work, self study and practice are the only things that can help one excel in chess
QUESTION 06 | 07
What would you say to a student who says, "This is too difficult, I give up!"?
Tejas — I would not say anything immediately but will break that particular concept into parts and slowly teach the student about it. By way of encouragement, I will motivate the student by saying that he/she has got the topic and only needs to push a bit further to master it
QUESTION 07 | 07
How does someone become a Super Teacher?
Tejas — We would like to give you the opportunity to illustrate what you have shared with us by sending us a few photos! These will be published on your tutoring ad, along with your answers.
