061 Adventures in Course Creating with NM Laura Smith

Jun 06, 2023

It’s not often a chess content creator is an everyday superhero who’s also a school teacher and mother of three.

But that’s what makes NM Laura Smith so special. 

She gives much of her free time to helping others in chess, both as a coach, a Twitch streamer, and now…a brand-spankin’ new Chessable author!

Laura was one of my first guests to appear on the show, and the first interview I ever recorded.

So, I’m thrilled to have her back on the podcast to update the latest in her chess life.

Her new course, Forcing Moves for Beginners, is now available and was a labor of love. (Link to the course is below.)

In this episode, we discuss: 

  • Why solving “easy” tactics very fast is critical for club players.
  • Laura’s new & deeper connection with the online chess community in the past year.
  • An exciting forthcoming course collaboration between Laura and an esteemed, well-known chess coach.
