Hi!

There are a lot of competitive programming coaches who offer online lessons. What do you think, should Codeforces create some subpage where coach can provide information (like prices) about himself?

In chess world, popular sites have pages about that. For example,

https://lichess.org/coach

https://www.chess.com/coaches

anyone wanting to be coached and eager to fight the organization can contact me. The mad sports programmer (sp) Hououin Riela is always glad to help!

Really? And what do they offer? Or what do you want from online coach?

    Learn new stuff like algorithms. I know that there is a lot of free lectures online, but if someone wants to pay private coach, it's his decision.

I teach for 50$/h. If somebody is interested, just DM me.

I think it doesn't make much sense for Competitive Programming because you should do it for fun (so why would you pay?), but I do recommend it if you're preparing for a coding interview. Then it's a fight to get a job and it's worth it.

    winning is more fun then not winning (anything else being equal), so it's like paying for your own enjoyment in the future which people do all the time.

        I'm also in the coaching business, and I also teach system design, so I'm one step ahead of you ;)

        There's no easy answer. You have to convince me that you are worth my time.

            I don't understand the question. Can you elaborate?

            Also, if you spam my inbox right now, please keep in mind that I'm extremely busy this week (I'm organizing a competition with Errichto) and I'll read everything, but with a large delay. Sorry about that!

              i just wondering if someone want you to mentor/guide him while training. provide road maps, tips, advice, ... to make him improve his skills and knowledge (in my opinion this is better than practice in a random way). should he just have a passion about the problem solving ? is there any prerequisites (like a minimum CF rate, number of problem solved , .. etc) ?

I read this as "Cockroaches on Codeforces" and was confused for a second
