Private Tuition & Gifts

IM Richard Pert coaching

Adult one-to-one lessons

Currently I provide tuition to adults in Central London & Canary Wharf at people’s workplace during the week. Typically I tend to teach during lunch, office hours or immediately after work. My schedule is now starting to become quite full, but feel free to email if you would like to look at some chess together.

Lesson cost: £80 per hour – limited availability

Junior one-to-one lessons

My advice for most juniors looking to improve would be to attend one of the training events which we hold. I do some one-to-one junior coaching in Essex and London, although reserve this time to focus on strong junior players. If your child is a strong player and you would like me to look at some chess privately with them then drop me an email.

Lesson cost: £60 per hour – limited availability


I do occasionally accompany school teams to particular events (schedule permitting). This can really benefit the team involved who will usually significantly outperform with me there to give advice and go through games.

Day cost: £350 per day + expenses – (schedule permitting)

For this or any other school related event feel free to contact me at
