Alberta Chess Association
National Master Vlad Rekhson
I have several years of coaching experience which includes: private lessons, group instruction, as well as teaching classes in schools. I currently teach at The Renert and Edison schools in Calgary, where chess has been included in the regular school curriculum.
My students range from complete beginners to advanced competitive players.
During private instruction, I first assess the student and besides determining their chess skills, I try to evaluate their approach to learning, what they enjoy the most about chess and base my future lesson plans on that.
Besides being a chess instructor and a National Master, I am also an International Chess Arbiter. I have been the Chief Arbiter of two Canadian Opens, 6 Edmonton Internationals and an assistant Arbiter in a European Club championship.
