David Koetsier Contributor


David has been a chess coach for over 20 years. Born and raised in the Netherlands, he started playing chess as an eight-year-old and immediately fell in love with the game. He found his passion in teaching others the skills of the game while he was still competing in tournaments around the world. David is passionate about the many benefits chess can provide to students – helping them increase their forward, creative and logical thinking, developing their mathematical skills and providing a tool to communicate in autistic students. Since moving to Australia he established Chesslife and works as a Certified Senior Junior Chess Coach. David is well known for his lively delivery, wide chess knowledge and incredible enthusiasm.
