I hold a high school diploma from Monterrey Institute of Technology's High School in Aguascalientes, Mexico. And a Licentiate in International Relations from the National Autonomous University of Mexico in Mexico City. I'll pursue a graduate degree and I'll further continue until I have a doctoral degree in law or international relations.
My experience in chess started with a five-year fascination with the subject. For three years I used to play with every friend I invited to my house and didn't develop much of a technique of any sort. After that I started at the National Autonomous University of Mexico and found myself sharing a house with six aspiring mathematicians, who were more than happy to meet such an avid player. They used to beat me every single time, which continued for a year, 365 days playing non stop. After that I found them a bit reluctant to play with me. I had become a decent player, and it took a lot of trial and error but I was finally beating them. After that period all but one of them stopped playing with me and I had to go online to find a worthy opponent, I still play every day and read chess related publications.
My approach at chess tutoring is mostly practical. I start teaching the basic rules, the seven basic principles of chess, and algebraic notation, common tactics and strategy. For the second phase I will teach the usual opening positions, the opening being the most important part of chess. The third phase practice, I'll check any flaws in style. Once players starts getting better in the opening, I'll introduce them to the middle game and the ending game theory.
For one to become a successful chess player one must master the three parts of the game. The openings should always follow the seven principles. One must hold as much material (pieces) as one can in the middle game. And finally one must know how mating positions can happen once the queen and minor pieces are gone.
