Chess Coaching

[ A+ ] /[ A- ]

 Professional . Personalised . Proven

With so many people out there offering chess lessons it can be hard to know where to go, and who to trust your chess development with. In order to take your game to the next level it is important to chose wisely, and by visiting my page I believe you are close to doing just that! I make no false promises of instant success, but instead promise this: to provide you with personalised high quality lessons, from a proven international coach.

 

About Your Coach

 

I have been a professional coach for the past 9 years, and in this time have worked with over 400 students from 76 countries and every continent. This has allowed me to build up considerable experience in helping students of all  backgrounds and abilities to improve, and this level of experience is invaluable for being a top coach. I am also an expert commentator on Chessdom, and regularly give analysis on top games there. As an active player, I hold the title of International Master and a current FIDE of 2439. For more information about my personal achievements, please see my biography page.

 

About Your Lessons

 

Do you often find when reading a book or watching a video that parts are either irrelevant to you, or you wish you could ask a question about? This is where a professional coach is able to help. It is important that lessons are tailored towards you as an individual, and as such every student will follow a unique coaching program. In the first few lessons, I will make an assessment of you as a player, and find the areas which need developing the most. My job will then be to create a coaching program around that, and over time we will work through these areas thoroughly. This will include building your own high-quality opening repertoire to suit your style, working on strategy, building up your tactical strength, and practical endgame instruction.

  6. Hello Mr Perunovic,

    A short introduction. I have played chess when I was much younger and then stopped playing for about 16 years. I am now 40 years old and recently started playing at my old chess club again. My rating level was around 1850 but has slipped and is now around 1750. I would have three objectives:
    1. What openings do best suit my style (especially with black)
    2. Improve skills to recognize and work towards favorable end game
    3. Reach an ELO rating of 2000 by November 2017

    Given other duties, I can spent about 10 hours per week to chess. I play 3 hours at my chess club, study for about 6 hours, play online blitz for 1 hour.
    Once every two weeks, I would like to have a coach that analyzes my games and style to reach the above objectives. Can you inform me about training style and if you consider this feasible? I would also like to understand how many hours per month would be needed in the first months and later on an ongoing basis. Finally, it would be good to know your hourly rate.

    Many thanks,
    Wim van de Kraats

    Hello

    I saw the IQP stream, and was curious as to what your rates are. If you could email me at your earliest convenience, so we could set up potential lessons, I’d greatly appreciate it.

Mio is a great chess coach! He knows how to assess students’ strengths and weakness, and guides the students accordingly. Right after my son switched from another coach, Mio recommended a few opening changes to match my his playing style, leading to a huge improvement in his chess.
Mio is not only good at teaching chess theories and techniques, he also knows know to inspire young players. My son learned a great deal after studying with Mio. We are happy with his progress. Mio is truly a great coach!

Miodrag is an excellent coach for somebody with ambition to improve their game. When I first started working with Miodrag, I was already a quite experienced tournament player even having been awarded the FM title. Despite this he quickly identified many problems with my game and we started to work on improving these areas. He is often thinking about how to help his students and many of his suggestions are original and valuable. For example he told me to play the French defence, an opening I previously didn’t think highly of, but in fact from the first few games it was clear I have a natural affinity for this opening. Without Miodrag’s help I could certainly not have made two IM norms, and probably would not have achieved the goal I set of playing for New Zealand during 2012. If you are ambitions and willing to work quite hard then have no doubt Miodrag provides excellent value.
