I have been playing chess since the age of 4 and was Kent Champion in the under 8, 10, 12, 16 and 18 age groups. I represented England Juniors abroad and won the under 16 British championships held in Dundee. After a hiatus I have come back to playing competitive chess and have an ECF grade which puts me on the cusp of the top 200 chess players in England. Having renewed my passion for chess and am now playing at a standard beyond that which I achieved as a junior.


From the first lesson Yasmin was totally engaged and from that time has loved chess. Joel is a very approachable, extremely knowledgeable tutor and we highly recommend him as your child's next tutor
