About Farirai


Bio

I am a passionate Chess instructor. I have coached chess for 10 years and along the way have seen the joy and success this beautiful game brings to those who play it. Most, if not all the skills learnt through Chess are transferable to other areas of life. Younger students become more confident in their abilities are more focused and have foresight. I enjoy the creativeness of a young mind that can be displayed through Chess. Older players bring discipline and structure to their daily lives...

I am a passionate Chess instructor. I have coached chess for 10 years and along the way have seen the joy and success this beautiful game brings to those who play it. Most, if not all the skills learnt through Chess are transferable to other areas of life. Younger students become more confident in their abilities are more focused and have foresight. I enjoy the creativeness of a young mind that can be displayed through Chess. Older players bring discipline and structure to their daily lives with chess as a hobby or a competitive past time.

Yes! Chess is fun also. you get to travel and meet new friends and learn from them. I have a Chess Instructors title (NI) National Instructor from the World Chess governing body (FIDE). I also organise chess tournaments and acquired another FIDE title of (FA) FIDE Arbiter. I have had students acquire International titles at Chess competitions including World Chess Olympics. Not only do I teach chess I play also with registered International rating. I am a tournament player having played in three different countries.

Get in touch with me to learn many other joys and benefits of chess. from the beginner player young or old to the tournament or club player. I will be happy to share my experience and help you improve and love chess!

Experienced, Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Farirai Is Awesome

Simply put Farirai is a great choice for beginners like myself to learn chess. He was able to clearly explain ideas and break things down even for someone who does not know much about chess. He is a gentleman and if you are looking for a chess coach he is a fantastic choice!

Excellent Chess Tutor

Mr. Farirai, My son told me that he wanted to play Chess so I used Wyzant and found Mr. Farirai. He is an excellent tutor and provides great feedback and I am very pleased with my son's progress.

Engaging and Patient Tutor

Coach Fari has been working with our 9 year old son for the past few months. Our son loves chess and plays regularly with his friends at school, but we were looking to give him a more strategic approach and elevate his understanding of the game. Coach Fari is engaging, keeps our son fully interested during the entire hour, and covers tactics, piece development, and other strategies. Our son can now beat his grandfather with ease and plays pretty level with his dad, which wasn’t the case before he started with Coach Fari. As a coach, he is patient and kind, but also challenging and thought provoking at the right level. He has really upped our son’s game and helped him to love the game even more. Our son really enjoys his lessons with Coach Fari. We highly recommend him for students of all ages!

Very knowledgeable and kind chess guide

Very thorough and kind. My son enjoys the overall plan and direction Farirai has provided. He is learning a lot from chess puzzles. Sessions with Farirai are very informative and helpful. My son chess tactics and strategy level has increased.

Leslie, 8 lessons with Farirai

Highly recommended chess tutor

I would recommend Farirai for anyone looking for a chess tutor. No matter your age or skill level, Fari is going to be able to help you take your game to the next level. By our second lesson, he was already identifying personal weaknesses in my chess and helping improve them. He is always willing to stay past the lesson time to answer any lingering questions and is available to answer any questions that come up in between lessons. Whether you are a beginner trying to learn the game or an intermediate player trying to reach the next level, Fari will help you reach your goal.

Great tutor

We work on relevant strategies and tactics to suit my current and evolving needs. He is an excellent communicator with good knowledge of the game. We reference previous games of mine and trends that are yet unpacked to continue to make strides winning.
