I was a chess coach working in organizations. Now I would like to start my own. I need help about the chess curriculum or lesson plan and the platform to use to teach. Also are there any courses for chess coaches.

    Please limit yourself to one question per question. I would also strongly urge you to use the site's search function. In the top left hand side of the screen, where it says "Search on Chess..." you can type your search word or phrase and press enter. You may find that your questions have already been asked and answered.

I recommend the Chess Steps Method & Curriculum - from beginner to Master level (all ages)

"Chess-Steps is a step by step method for teaching and learning chess. The combination of workbook and manual creates a school like situation. All lessons are structured and contain clear goals. The books cover everything from how the pieces move in Step 1 to important endgame strategies in Step 5 and 6. Most attention is given to tactics. The strength of Chess-Steps is that it chops all tactics into little building blocks. Solving a chess problem with a subject is significantly easier than a problem without. Not only are all tactics categorized, Chess-Steps offers a search strategy for every subject as well. Students will develop a feeling for tactical positions, a sense for when to be alert and take advantage of badly placed pieces"

For a great online resource targeted at kids consider Chesskid, great curriculum and great teaching resources.
