We work with all skill levels, from teaching fundamentals to students who have never played, to advanced logic and tactics for experienced students.
With the idea that the children will learn chess if they are having fun, we recruit instructors that are great with kids and have a background in chess, instead of the stereotypical chess professional who struggles to connect with a classroom of children.
