Lorin D'Costa- Chess Coach, Presenter & Author

As a professional chess coach, my underlying aim is to help children of all chess strengths enjoy and play the game of chess.

This website is mainly about junior chess in England, and giving advice to parents on how their child can improve their chess and most of all, enjoy the game! Often parents whose children play chess have no experience at all of the game and how the chess tournament circuit works, where to look in terms of training etc. so I hope this site will answer many of those questions.

* Available for Coaching at Your School * 1-1 chess lessons * Available for Lectures and Simultaneous Exhibitions
