Tools of the Trade

Having transitioned to providing online coaching (rather than face to face, which I prefer), here are my current tools.

  • A good collection of coaching books (Yusopov coaching series, 365 Chess Master Lessons by Soltis)
  • Lichess (You can share analysis boards and study collaboratively) 
  • Zoom video software (despite the fact it is currently being slammed in technology circles)
  • XSplit Gamecaster (for streaming lessons to multiple students)
At this stage it seems to work well for one on one sessions, and has the added benefit of getting me to prepare instructive positions in advance.
