Hi there, I’m Namita

The main reason I am a chess coach today is because I have been a chess player since my childhood. It is indeed a great achievement to see the kids learn about the game, flourish and develop sportsmanship in them right from a very young age.

Chess Philosophy

The game of chess is not merely an idle amusement. 
Several very valuable qualities of the mind, useful in the course of human life, are to be acquired or strengthened by it

 

Playing chess has many overall benefits.

  • Chess promotes concentration span and develops memory.

  • Chess is a game of calculations, and hence helps in math.

  • Chess is a game which involves logic and strategy.

  • Chess always helps you to think ahead of the situation (calculating few moves ahead).

  • Chess also fosters better planning, decision making, and problem solving skills.

  • Chess improves hand-eye coordination.


Teaching experience in this game requires utmost patience, which can be demonstrated during Namita's classes. Namita tries her best to reach out to the students by using the latest technology to teach chess, such as video conference, analysing online chess games played by students, online self created puzzles, tools from chess.com, online notes.
