Why You Need a Chess Tutor

Do you want to learn how to play chess? The best way to do it is to train with a private chess tutor. This will be the key to your success in those intense chess matches. Many people consider chess to be a dull pastime or just a child’s board game. However, there are people who see it as a form of art or a special skill of the mind you have to have to master in order to excel at chess. Chess can also be considered an educational methodology and has actually been proven in school to improve life and thinking skills. A lot of people consider chess to be a sport even comparing it to an Olympic game. Work with a chess tutor that believes in the game and in you.

Although not everyone sees the importance of chess, there are thousands of colleges the offer scholarships if you are in your high school chess club. Needless to say, chess tutoring can be an investment in your future to help you get into college and assist your parents with expensive education costs. So if you (or your student) are in high school but unsure of what clubs or activities you should join, go ahead and find a chess tutor. It can truly be a fantastic opportunity for you to learn a skill that you can carry with you for the rest of your life and pass on to others while setting yourself up to have a stacked college application.

High school chess tutors realize how big of a difference it can make if you start your child off with the sport at a young age. Chess has been proven to help with concentration, memory, IQ level and improvement in reading skills with children. Playing chess is a great way to not only be social and find a new group of friends, but also an opportunity for your child to become a better overall student. Traditional sports like soccer, baseball and football are not enjoyable for every child. Some prefer different a style of sport such as chess, which can have just as many benefits if not more. But also if your child does enjoy traditional sports but is having difficulties in class, chess can be a fun way for them to improve their mental capacity. Chess is known to be a sport for incredibly intelligent individuals, so learning at a young age could drastically improve the way your child learns.

If you never took the time to learn how to play chess but find yourself searching for a new hobby, a chess tutor from HeyTutor is something you need to consider. If you want to get a little bit more active or just keep your brain sharp, chess is a fantastic way to accomplish this and so much more. Working with one of our chess tutors will put you in contact with someone who has a fantastic background in the game. They know how to play along with the tips and tricks that others might not know because they never had the tutelage you will receive. While working with our tutor, who essentially acts as your own personal coach, you might figure out that you actually are better than you thought. Most people do not know that you can make money playing chess, because you have to be very good. Our professional tutors will ensure that you will be skilled enough to compete, so you might be able to turn your hobby into a money-making venture.


For most people searching for a “chess tutor near me” or “chess tutoring near me,” you may want to simply learn the basics, which our professional tutors will be able to teach you. They will help you with the small things like what each piece does or the logic involved with chess. Our tutors will even dive into the special rules that you need to know and more importantly how to put yourself in the best position to win games. Working with a trained professional chess tutor is such a great opportunity because you are being matched with someone who is a fantastic chess player but also a great tutor. Most times you see individuals who are good at something cannot translate that over to the teaching world. Our tutors have both the backgrounds needed which puts you in the prime conditions to unleash your inner chess master.

Benefits of Hiring a Chess Tutor

One-on-one chess tutoring has a great track record of helping players reach their full potential Our chess tutors can increase your focus, slyness, and knowledge of the game. You can work with your coaches to target areas that need improvement and work to strengthen performance capabilities and techniques. You’ll have plenty of secret weapons after working with a trained tutor that the competition will not have learned. This is the perfect situation for anyone trying to educate themselves about any and everything that has to do with this game. A game that has been around for hundreds of years. HeyTutor makes private chess tutoring affordable and convenient for players of all skill levels and ages.

If you (or your student) is new to chess things are going to go slow at first. Chess is a tough sport to understand and you must first know all there is about the rules before you can even begin to compete. For children this might be a difficult situation to find yourself in, but especially if you are in a traditional classroom setting. Your student will not get the attention they need to focus on the sport and the rules, there will be far too many distractions. This might take them out of it and completely remove their interest in the sport. But when you are working with one of our tutors they make sure your child will remain focused. Being in a comfortable setting will remove all outside distractions so the only thing the student will have on their mind is getting better at chess. Plus, it is a lot more difficult to lose focus when you are face to face with one of our tutors who has created a lesson plan around your learning style. This offers a unique opportunity for your student to truly be able to learn the game and grasp on to all of the rules that are associated with it.

There is no one way that our tutors approach teaching. Even with years of experience under their belt, they do not teach every student the same way because they realize that every student has their own learning style. However, two of the things that remain constant are comfortablity, which was mentioned earlier, and enjoyability. No matter what it is you are learning, if you are not enjoying the subject matter it will not stick with you. Chess is also a game, first and foremost, so it is imperative that the student is enjoying themselves while playing. No matter why you got into chess our tutors will make sure that you have fun while you’re learning so that it makes it that much more fun when you start winning.

If you are a bit older and looking for a chess tutor, you already are planning on enjoying yourself. You want this to be a good time, which is why you made the decision “I need a chess tutor.” The main thing for you will be retaining the information, which our tutors will make sure you accomplish. Our tutors will assess you and see what it is you truly want. If you just want to learn the rules so that you can casually play with some friends, they will accompany you with this goal. If you want to become the best possible chess player so you can dominate your friends our tutors will push you harder so you reach your goals. If you pay attention and do what they ask of you, there is no reason why you should not be the best chess player in your friend group or at the park. We offer you specialized lessons with specialists, a rare service but something that can truly take your game to the next level.

Go ahead, search our platform of trusted tutors to find one-on-one lessons in an environment that is perfect for you to reach success. Don’t waste any more of your time, reach out to our fantastic team of reps. We match aspiring chess players with professional chess instructors who turn your weaknesses into strengths, improve your skills, and increase your confidence. Learn everything you need to know about the game today with a top-notch chess tutor.
