“He had a great virtual lesson with Jessica this morning! Set up was easy! Just wanted to give you the positive feedback on the experience.”

WGM and two time chess champion
“I’m the mom of a four year old boy who loves chess. He likes the classes a lot too, which really surprised me because 45 minutes is a long class for a 4 year old. The fact that they go back and forth from chess to story really keeps it interesting. I highly recommend it and I think it’s so important for people to play physically as well as on the computer because it really activates different types of learning.”
