yes I recommend considering what you’re going to enjoy. I had an opportunity for a similar one off lesson last year and ended up playing a game with a stranger while the teacher watched, very nervous making, and not what I would do again (although it was interesting and I learned, no disrespect to the teacher, just not my style)
@shinuito I think a game and then review would be the best, interacting with the teacher. I can’t imagine it being a “full” lesson otherwise, more of a (very high quality, of course) review.
@Allerleirauh I pledged about 40 Euros or something to a Go-related cause that didn’t happen, so since I considered that money burned anyway… I’ve seen most Patreons around that amount for the tier that is basically a lesson, I might be wrong.
Michael Redmond’s 50$ (USD) tier gets a private review with him. He’s an amazing teacher, and he’s fun and engaging. I was taking monthly lessons with him for a few months that were streamed live on Twitch (normally they’re private of course ) I can send you one of the VODs if you want to see an example of his teaching style
Probably there are many pros out there that I don’t know about, since I’m not much for following content creators other than a few, so if anyone knows someone that I don’t even know I’d be glad to consider.
That’s why I didn’t post names myself, so that everyone can suggest whoever they want, I’ll consider all.
All pros i played were free games in events, training camps and so on so i can hardly advise you. But it has always been a wonderful experience.
I advise you more pro as strong ama as they proved to me to be generally more sweet and inspired ( I wrote generally, sorry if i offended someone )
I don’t really know what this means but here are the two most recent VODs, which I apparently had forgotten to publish until looking at them just now:
Twitch (the first hour and a half is just the game; you have to skip forward quite a bit to get to Redmond’s review). I haven’t listened to it but I think that one had horrible echo because I didn’t have my headphones, so the following (and more recent) one is better:
Twitch from January 8th, where I had headphones thank God. Again you’ll have to skip the first hour and a half, if it doesn’t automatically jump there based on the link
BenKyo’s great too. I’d probably recommend him for regular lessons. For a one-off, I’m sure he’d be phenomenal as well, but it’s always cool to play a pro just once to say that you did
