In GO, it is noble to learn the art by oneself. Yet noble and wise do not always belong together. While listening to a Audiogolessons lecture, see post, Guo Juan stated that Dan level players hit a sticking point because because, in her opinion, they learned on their own and eventually this catches up to them. She created a series of lectures to go back to the beginning and teach the basics and bring the player all the way to the top levels. Learning from books is the most cost affordable solution, though when one has a question, one cannot ask, "Book, why can't I play a kakari here instead?" One can ask, and if one gets an answer, there are other issues at hand. Most importantly, the errors in play themselves must be found and the skill must be guided. The teacher, or master, has been a large part of most traditions, including Go, going back beyond recorded history. The teacher is the one that provide this guidance.
Finding a teacher can be a daunting task. One must search blogs, web pages, or google, then attempt to compare the results and make a decision. Below is a list of active Go teachers. This will be an ongoing list, updated as new teachers ask to be included or those already on the list change information. At each update, the date of change will be noted.
The majority of teachers provide services in Euros, therefore I have decided to keep the majority of them in Euros. Rather than convert those provided in dollars, I have provided a Currency Converter link, given that rates change of a daily basis.
Keep in mind that most teachers below offer bulk discounts. Paying for 5-10 lessons at a time will lower the cost of each individual lesson. Almost all accept payment through Paypal.
