Looking for a play-by-play mentor
I'm a low intermediate chess player (by my
understanding) perhaps a beginner. I'm looking for
someone who would be kind enough to give me a
real tutorial. I would like to discuss pros and cons of
moves and have some comment on specific reasons
why moves are good or bad. I am aware of the
gameknot rules so I promise to resign if I am ever in
danger of checkmating my mentor. I just want
someone who will discuss a game, move by move,
and explain to me the various merits and dangers of
given positions. I know I can order books to do this,
but there is nothing like a real person to answer
questions. Also, finding English books is a bit of a
problem for me.

How hy of a rating do you want
your mentor to have?

If you want some advise...
#1... When you have a checkmate, play it... Even if he's your mentor... I tell all my students "Chess is no game to be kind"...
#2... Tutor lessons usually cost money (I spent thousands towards mine in my life time)... So if you do get a professional to play you a game and teach you for free... That every bit of the lesson seriously...

For advice and the offer. I will try to act on it.
Doesn't really matter how high the rating, just the play-by-play would be helpful.

Thanks and sorry
I appreciate the offers and hope they are still
good. I have been swamped (promotion, more work,
developing a curriculum for High School EFL, a new
teaching schedule and in the middle of a move). I
should be able to make it to the nearest Western
Union office (for the second time!!) sometime the
week after next. Until then my game allowance is
full. So in about three weeks, I hope to take up
these offers and challenge you. I hope it is not too
If your cup really runneth over with the milk of
human kindness, you could challenge me:), but as it
is my request, I hope you don't mind waiting until I
get my stuff sorted. I really appreciate the offers.
