I am Les Lord, a professional full-time chess coach/tutor and I am very passionate and fanatical about the game of chess. Chess is educationally, super-beneficial; it stimulates the mind and emotions; and is food/exercise for the brain. Whether you are young or old, male or female, rich or poor; regular chess training has the power to have a positive and far-reaching impact in your life for the better."Over 45 years experience in competitive chess"
I have over 45 years experience in competitive chess; both as a player and a coach. Even though I have now retired from participating in competitive tournaments, I am heavily involved in coaching/training juniors from around the Toowoomba district.
I teach a combination of school-based lessons and private lessons on a weekly basis. Some 25 years ago I commenced coaching chess in the school sector and now operate a full-time chess coaching business. The school-based chess lessons are before-school, after-school, at lunchtime and during class-time. More and more local Toowoomba schools are incorporating "chess lessons" in their school curriculum. The kids and teachers love it!
Now, I am pleased to offer online chess coaching lessons for individuals and groups, squads and schools.
