How do I book a lesson?
Our lessons are available both online or offline. The process of booking a lesson is simple. Just get in contact with a chess tutor of your choice, or accept requests from young people who have contacted you, organise a time, date and session format you would like - whether it be a one-off-session or multiple sessions - and make booking. You can select different tutors based on their reviews, their profile and their listings.
How to hire the best chess tutor?
A few tips for selecting a chess tutor.
- Read through their profile: our young people have robust personal stories and experiences to share and they often write about this on their profile. Select a profile which you believe is relatable to your child and with the skill sets which fit your requirements.
- Read their reviews: our more experienced tutors often have reviews given by their past customers. Having more positive reviews are generally an indication of professional behaviour and that they have provided positive experiences to past clients.
- Make a trial booking. It’s not expensive to book a tutor on MyPocketSkill. Booking an initial single lesson with one or more tutors can be a great way to understand whether it’s likely to be a fit. Once you have found a chess tutor that works for you, it’s possible to make block bookings on MyPocketSkill, which many customers find more convenient.
How does payment work?
Payment is managed through the MyPocketSkill platform. Our community managers work hard to ensure a good, fair and equitable experience is had by both our clients and the young people on our platform. If you have any concerns during our lesson booking process, get in contact with our team, via message or online chat, and we can assist.
