Do you have experience in teaching?
Before I started this Go school I already had quite a lot of experience in teaching/ giving reviews.
I play(ed) lots of weaker players both "even" and with "handy" (several
games a day). Most of those game I review (quickly) after
This Go school is now running for a few years
and I gained a lot of experience from the lessons with my
students during that time.

- I watch some of the free lessons that are given in various
room on KGS.
- I also buy lessons at
www.audiogolessons.com every now and then.
- Some stronger friends reviews my games if I want.
Why should I pay when you (and others) also give
free lessons on KGS?

2: These games will be private so we don’t get

3: You can choose what you would like the lesson to be about.

4: I have a teaching account and can therefore use audio.
5: You can choose when you want a lesson. (I'm quite
flexible with my time)
6: The people I aim to teach do not need an (expensive) high
dan or pro to improve.
7: I’m not doing much free reviews anymore.
