Hello my name is Kela Siame. Previously worked in Zambia, South Africa, and Botswana as a chess instructor, teacher, and coach. I have 4 years of experience in chess instruction. I have worked with children as young as 5 yrs old up to adults. I have also worked with Junior African Youth champion kids to Fide master level and WFMs respectively.

My experience is not limited to 1-on-1 sessions. I have experience coaching chess to large groups as well. I have taught in schools with 30-40 kids and I am able to capture their attention and interest in chess.



My rates will vary anywhere from $50-$100 per hour per class. I also provide 1-on-1 lessons. My rate for these sessions is $30/hour for individual students.

Please feel free to contact my references for additional information regarding my skills and experience
