Can I skip the intro and sign up for lessons directly?

Unfortunately, no. To match your child with the most suitable tutor and to place them in the right program, we need to assess their current level, understand their goals, and get to know them as a student. Having this intro session sets the foundation for a successful time with us!

Why does this intro session cost $1.00 USD?

If we offered this for free, we wouldn't attract serious chess learners. Due to limited availability on our calendar, we can only accommodate those who are truly ready and serious.

Cultivate Key Life Skills

Navigating the battlefield of black and white pieces cultivates mental agility, foresight, problem-solving prowess, and artistic imagination.

Develop Sportmanship

In the quiet duel of chess, respect for the opponent, grace under pressure, and fair play become the learned lessons of sportsmanship.

Academic Success

This game of strategy proves to be an academic ally, boosting focus, memory retention, math acuity, and a knack for logical reasoning.
