Frequently Asked Questions

What exactly is included in TheOnoZone 1:1 Chess Coaching?

You can choose between Weekly Lessons or Biweekly Lessons.


However, TheOnoZone 1:1 Chess Coaching includes much more than just chess lessons. You won't just get a chess teacher, you'll get a fulltime chess coach.


This includes:

  • Private 60-minute chess lesson every week / every 2 weeks


In your chess lesson, we'll analyse one of your recent games together and we'll dive deep into your thought process, weaknesses, and knowledge gaps. Even though I take chess improvement very seriously, I definitely like to teach in a casual atmosphere and make it fun for you!


  • Lesson preparation based on your recent games


I never work with a fixed format. Each and every one of your lessons is diligently prepared based on what's happened in your chess journey since our last lesson. The lesson prep usually takes me as long as the lesson itself!


  • Lesson summary after every lesson


You'll get a voice message with an overview of the main insights from your last lesson within 24 hours. This helps to keep you focused and motivated.


  • Homework assignments customized to your learning style


Every week, I'll give you homework assignments based on where you are in your chess journey, your preferred learning styles and what we decided you should be working on next. I'm not a high school teacher, so you won't get in trouble if you don't finish your homework on time. The exercises are there to point you in the right direction and keep you accountable so you can build sustainable chess training habits, and ultimately reach your chess goals.


  • Personalized study plan to measure your progress and take your chess improvement to the next level


You can download my Free Study Plan Template to track your chess training daily. With my students, I take it a step further. We'll discuss your current chess training, both knowledge and skills, and will decide on a clear path forward. We'll continuously adapt your training based on your development.


  • Continuous (voice) message support for all things chess


Throughout the week, I'm there for you for all things chess. In one message I may be answering your question about a new opening you're playing, in the next I'm giving you suggestions for that OTB game you have coming up, and a while later I might be picking you up after a loss and sending my notes on your game. I'm also monitoring your online chess profile and watch your games live whenever I can. I'm here 24/7, you decide when to reach out!


  • BONUS: Access to private online Discord community exclusively for students of TheOnoZone


Once you become a student, you'll get access to TheOnoZone Students Community. This online Discord community is exclusively available to my chess coaching students. Here you'll be able to interact with other Adult Improvers, solve the 'puzzle of the week' and find peer support in the sometimes solitary pursuit of chess greatness.

How are your monthly prices calculated?

For the weekly and biweekly lessons of TheOnoZone 1:1 Chess Coaching, I use the average of 4.345 weeks in a month to calculate the monthly price.

  • The monthly price calculation for Weekly Lessons is: €50/lesson * 4.345 = €215/month
  • The monthly price calculation for Biweekly Lessons is: €60/lesson * (4.345 / 2) = €130/month

Monthly prices are always rounded down in your favor. All prices include VAT and vendor transfer fees (PayPal or Stripe).

Can I purchase 1 individual chess lesson only?

No, because I know that real chess progress takes time. I also don't want to take on too many students, so you really get my full attention when you sign up for my coaching.


If it's your first lesson with TheOnoZone, you should book a Free Trial Lesson so you can get to know me and my teaching style risk-free.

I have another question. How can I reach you?

Feel free to contact me by sending an email to info@theonozone.com. I'll get back to you as soon as possible.
