charles_storeyPassportsizeThanks for landing on my chess site. I love Chess and it loves me!

My name is Fide Master Charlie Storey from Morpeth, Northumberland.

I am Author and creator of ‘The Sniper’ Chess Opening and I am an England Under 16 International Team Chess Coach as well a s being one of the few fully trained Teachers who is a Chess Master in the World!






Having won more Open Chess tournaments (162) than most Grandmasters in the UK (except Hebden and Arkell!)  I am well qualified to teach chess and have been doing so for 20+ years. Here is my latest the North East Chess Championship.

I have Coached / Mentored some of England’s best Junior players by using teaching techniques that I have learned both through chess and as my status as a qualified secondary school teacher of Computer Science and Physical Education. I am of course DBS Checked.

  • I Use Chessbase and ‘Skype Screen Share’ to deliver my lessons and I charge £50 per hour.
  • I can teach in your home but that is £70 per hour and a cup of coffee to help with my transport costs.
  • I also run after School or Lunch Time Chess Clubs where I charge £100 per hour on Termly Contracts (parental pressure to the HEAD Teacher normally helps kick-starts a club in Northumberland / Newcastle.)

I also have my own collection of chess learning resources mainly on my opening called The Sniper you can view it here.

Please Text me on UK Mobile 0771 90 70 349  or Email me storey@CharlieChess.com to register an interest in Coaching / Mentorship. I normally start with a few taster lessons then escalate to a disciplined program of study and guided home-works if your child shows talent and passion.

My Skype Handle is FMCharlieStorey

I regularly play Challenge Chess matches at Chess.com –  which supports online lesson delivery.

I also do Clock and Blindfolded Simultaneous Displays!

I am open to Sponsored Sniper Chess Challenge matches against the worlds best Grandmasters or best computer programs.

I am also a Football Coach and I have played for Blyth Spartans and Morpeth Town when a younger man.
