Have used Heisman; still do, and I think he is excellent. I am low ranking and enjoy his lessons. I recommend him highly. I can’t seem to find any reference to pricing in the Live Coaching email I have just received from chess.

Dan Heisman – Wikipedia

Does it vary from coach to coach? I would assume yes. I think the idea is that chess. I took a few lessons from Dan a number of years hesiman became a budget issue for me eventuallybut as I’m sure you can tell if you’ve seen his videos, Dan is an excellent communicator and works largely by examining your own games as opposed to some teacher which offer a lot of “canned” presentations that are used for all students.

The advice you will get is largely the same advice from his Novice Nook articles Of course, a stronger player like Dan will point out where you’re mis-interpreting principles as well.

The lessons are not only informative, but are also fun thanks to Dan’s easy-going personality and communication style. Whether or not it’s worth the money is a judgement chfss of course. I think there are a lot of much stronger players who are not nearly as good of teachers.

If interested, contact me thru my website www. I think that in itself just might tell you how sharp he is. I seem to remember Issac Asimov being up there in the stratosphere while we all crawled below.

Teachers provide information and you can have all levels of teachers. There are great players that are horrible teachers.


Dan Heisman vs other coaches. high prices worth it?

Coaches are guides that motivate and get players to work in things that they might not really want to do. Chess has been sort of figured out on what you should learn.

The problem is working through the tons of information and having people work on whats important and not waste time. Coaches are personality driven so make sure your a match. I coach locally and my students compete with master coached students on an equal footing but once they reach about I realize that I am not knowledgeable enough to teach them so I find a good coach for them to learn from one of the aformentioned masters. Anyone who is self employed typically has to charge 3x as much as they would accept in a traditional job to cover taxes and insurance.

And that’s assuming you can stay busy for 40 hours a week Decent in my book but not extravagant by any means. I imagine cost of living plays a large factor though. So any coach in America or Europe has to charge more just to survive. Things must be very different on the other side of the pond. An employee where I live might expect to pay only for the same insurance.

Also in America both the employee and employer need to pay into social security. When an individual is self hrisman, they are considered for tax purposes to be both employer and employee.

Price and value are always relative terms. What is worth a fortune to one person is without any worth at all to the next. So all the pricing issues are irrelevant – unless someone contends that Coach B is more reasonable and just as good as Coach A.

I don’t know Heisman and have only read a couple of his articles at Chess Cafe, which appeared to be very well written but geared for a more fundamental level.

But from everything I hear from students and former students of his, they leave at least as satisfied as the students of any other prominent coach. In any case, it is on the front page here that Heisman will be authoring articles here, apparently at least some in relief of the “reader question” feature that Silman does. So you can get something of a free sample to see how you like him.


Good to know he’s making a presence here You will also chhess training materials too. We offer flexible schedule and very proefessional chess coaching. Regards, Manthan Chokshi – Founder – R. Chokshi School of Chess. Visit us on Facebook: So I guess for chsss if he doesn’t charge about 80 dollars an hour then he has missed out on 80 dollars minus what he charged.

Whereas a lower profile coach who isn’t writing books may have a FIDE rating higher than what Dan has and be at least as good a coach. But the opportunity cost for him or her isn’t the same. Forums General Chess Discussion. Apr 12, Oct 17, Jun 18, Jul 4, Dan Heisman himself replied on your thread.

I look at things in two ways, I you have teachers and coaches. Honestly I think you coaches deserve more. How do you get by on that? Then there are retirement benefits to consider While it doesn’t only affect the self employed, you guys have VAT though. That thing is scary.

Things must be very different on the other side of the pond. Yeah, we have a national health service. Jul 6, Jul 7, Mar 29, Mar 30, I guess that the economics of it is that of opportunity cost.
