Private Coaching

Hello,  I am Emma-Jane Billington-Phillips and have taught chess to children for over 25 years in school clubs, holiday clubs, at tournaments and privately on a one-to-one basis.

Whether your child can already play chess or would like to learn this game for life I offer private coaching to suit their level.

I have coached many children from complete beginners through to England players, for School chess scholarship applications including writing references for the process, when a child is interested in joining their school chess club, but want a basic understanding before they begin or would like to gain confidence in their ability to enter competitions.

I currently have a few spaces available for coaching in person, I am also offering  coaching online via Skype.  All private pupils connecting through Skype will be given their own unique login to free online chess software where I will invite them to a private study where we will both be able to see the same chess position, moves, notation, etc., for our lesson(s).

If you are interested I would like to hear from you so please complete the form below and a member of our admin team will get back to you with more information and prices:
