Last update: January 15th, 2016.

I regret to inform you.  I have to stop recruiting new students because currently I have too many students.  In a month or two months, I may have more room for new students.  So please check this website again.  I appreciate your understanding.


New Service 1: please see Offline Lessons


New Service 2: If you do not have any recorded games, please don’t worry.  I can still teach you.  Please see “Teaching for non-recorders“.


New Problems:

There are some examples of what you will learn when you take my lessons.  Please take a look at the problems:


Lesson Fee:

The 1st, 2nd, 3rd lesson fee is $42 / €37.

The 4th and 5th lesson fee is  $49 / €43.

After that, each lesson fee is $55 / €48

WARNING: Please include the transaction fee in the lesson fees above.  If you mistakenly pay more, I’ll send you extra problems to compensate for that.

WARNING: Please do not send the payment as “a family” on paypal.  Please use the payment as business transactions.

If I receive lots of payments from family members from all over the world, PayPal might start getting suspicious about the transactions and suspend my account.  If I find out about someone paying me as a family, I may have to stop teaching that person.


Special Lessons:

When it comes to offline lessons, there is Special Lesson A, which is a much better deal than this.  If you’re interested in it, please click Offline Lessons.


Payment by Paypal.

I use Paypal and accept the US dollar or the Euro.  I don’t accept credit cards.

How to apply for Kaz’s Go Lessons!

  1. Please go to Paypal and look for my email address: cickazu@gmail.com
  2. Now you’re ready to pay the fee to Kazunari Furuyama, (in Japan) but don’t finish the payment, yet.
  3. Before you click and complete the payment, please scroll down and find “Message (optional)” on Paypal.
  4. In “Message (optional)”, please fill out your instruction.  Here is an example of how you write your instruction.

“An offline lesson fee. This is Harry Callahan (your full name, please); I’ll be sending you 10 games soon.  Choose one of the games. Go ahead, make my day!”

  1. After this, please send me your 10 games in sgf files.
