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 am currently fully booked for coaching in person, but can offer 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:
