Why personal chess training?

Individual one to one instructions are essential to reach one’s full potential in chess. Individual guidance and best from a FIDE certified and licensed chess trainer, benefits students by accelerating their development and building confidence. Coaches are the driving force behind the development and success of their athletes. No athlete, no matter how talented, can achieve success without the guidance and support of their coaches.

SCF Expertise

SCF Chess Trainers have numerous years of national and international playing experiences and many years of teaching experiences in Singapore, with a proven record in achieving results with all levels of players. SCF Chess Trainers are FIDE (World Chess Federation) certified and licensed to train. They posses by far the most extensive knowledge on the SCF National Junior Squad trainees and methods used to improve individual performances.

Chess Trainer’s Education

SCF interactive Chess Trainers’ Seminars are held each year. They help to introduce innovation in teaching and enable coaches to share their successes, learn new skills in behaviour and high performance management, and receive helpful high-level expert feedback and advice.


A Chess Trainer’s instruction positively differs from any other sport coach’s instruction. The trainee is enabled to exactly replicate moves and ideas from chess masters’ practices.


Private chess tutoring gives students the personal attention that they cannot receive in such magnitude in a group class.

Private chess lessons can further improve student’s self esteem and love for the game and sport of chess.

Students enjoy the personal attention. Constantly challenging chess lessons plans encourage students to ask lots of questions.

Chess students range in age, rating and most importantly – level of game understanding. Individual coaching with an SCF Chess Trainer will bring the student to the next chess level faster.

Structured Individual Chess Training Programmes

A unique chess curriculum is created for each student, tailored and personalised to suit their individual targets, ambitions, and goals. Custom chess lesson plans allow students to excel at chess at an accelerated pace, as well as focus on eliminating on their specific chess gaps, ultimately improving their game of chess. Chess homework is often included in the lessons plans.

Personal Chess Training Programmes emphasize on specific and attainable goals via specific exercises, customization of chess training programmes, student’s accountability in achieving own targets, continuing chess education, chess counselling, and motivational support on how to achieve and maintain own goals. SCF Chess Trainers design comprehensive Personal Chess Training Programmes to achieve your goals.

Your Personal Chess Trainer, through own expertise, keeps you moving towards your success, while maintaining a positive genuine concern for your chess progress. Your Personal Chess Trainer supports you towards your chess goals and staying focused on the rewards of success. When you reach your exercise plateau, your Personal Chess Trainer redesigns your chess workout to advance you to the next level to continue to achieve maximum benefits for your efforts. By changing your exercise workout, your Personal Chess Training Programme remains fresh, new, challenging, and keeps your interest.


Typically, the type of student who takes private lessons is among the quickest learners in the group class and wishes to learn and achieve faster than the class pace.

Chess moms and dads generally choose private chess lessons for their child for one of two reasons:

  1. Private Chess Lessons for Championship Chess Play & Performance
  2. Private Chess Lessons for Improvement of Mental Skills


Private chess coaching is tailored specifically to the individual and as such, we are happy to discuss your needs and give expert advice on the level of chess training that would be appropriate.
