Roman Pelts, FIDE Master and FIDE trainer, offers individual and group lessons.

For a young person to reach their full potential in chess, private instruction is essential. Individual guidance from a professional trainer benefits a player in many ways, accelerating their development and building confidence. Roman Pelts, Canada’s premier chess coach and the founder of Chess Academy of Canada, is available for private or semi-private lessons. (Semi-private means two students at the same time)

Many others have competed successfully in national and world youth events. His two volume Comprehensive Chess Course is widely praised as the finest book of instruction available to schools and parents.

In 2005, in recognition of his expertise and decades of service, the World Chess Federation (F.I.D.E.) awarded Roman Pelts the esteemed title of FIDE Trainer, the only Canadian to be so honoured.
