After class is over, students can review the topic online, practice with puzzles and worksheets, and review class video about the subject

pawn level

Students in the Pawn Level are introduced to the game of chess, how pieces move & capture, chess rules, and how to start & finish a game successfully. While learning how the pieces move, students learn key strategies of each piece which helps avoid developing bad habits, thus building a solid foundation for success in chess and life.


Bishop Level

Students in the Bishop Level learn to create plans, identify targets and goals, gain an understanding of piece relationships, look three moves ahead, calculate variations, and consider their opponent’s defense. All of this is helping a student learn the essentials of basic planning, whether in life or chess.
