Do you want to get paid to teach chess?


We are always on the lookout for talented tutors to join our teaching team. If you share our passion for teaching chess, we would love to hear from you. We provide full support along with a range of top quality resources and teaching materials. Whether you are an amateur player or a national champion, if the passion is there, we want to find a way to get you involved. 


Drop us a message today to find out if we are looking for teachers in your area. If you would like to teach at your local school, head to our Start A Club page to find out how.


We offer classes to schools and education institutions which take place during lunch breaks or at the end of the day. 


Sessions are between thirty minutes to one hour and run on a weekly basis.


We believe it is important to provide students with sufficient input from our teachers and therefore have two teachers for big classes.

PRIVATE Tutouring

We offer private sessions teaching on a one to one or one to two student basis.


Our teachers come to students homes to teach these. If you are interested in private tutoring please contact jake@mindfulchess.co.uk to discuss options.


We offer coaching and personalised preparation for students who have decided they wish to further their games and start competing at open tournaments.

These one to one intensive sessions are designed to help the students most effectively capitalise on their strengths, while minimising the consequences of any weaker areas of their games.

Example Curriculum
