Agnieszka Matras-Clement
Woman International Master
Leduc, AB

I have 15 years of experience coaching students aged 6 to 18, including private lessons, coaching in groups and coaching in chess camps. I am a former coach of  a provincial team in Poland as well as the Polish National team and was the head chess teacher of a primary school in Poland from 2005 to 2012. I have a master's degree in teaching children and have written and published a book on how to teach chess to children.

I have been a Woman International Master since 2000 and am currently one of the highest rated players in Alberta and one of the highest rated women players in Canada. I was a member of the Polish National Team from 1997-2002, a member of the Polish World Champion Team under 20 in 2001 and Champion of Europe under 20 in active chess in 2002.

I invite all players from beginners to advanced. I care about chess as a sport and believe that chess can help your child in their development as a person and in thinking logically. I believe that the best results are seen when a child enjoys playing chess, so I try to engage my students and make lessons as entertaining as possible while still focusing on the fundamentals that need to be learned. Some of the results I have seen from my students include medals in national and provincial championships as well as strong finishes in international championships.
