Online Chess Lessons, July 2020.
This series of 8 online lessons will be conducted over Zoom meeting software. Each lesson will be between 20 and 30 minutes in length. Students will receive meeting login information before the start of the meeting.
Students may be signed up for individual lessons at $10 per session. Students wishing to attend all 8 lessons can sign up for the session for $56.
Included with the lessons will be the opportunity to play in our Friday Free-Play events on lichess.org each Friday afternoon.
We have divided the lessons into 2 subjects: core principles and strategic concepts. Core principles lessons will both introduce less-skilled players to important chess topics and reinforce fundamental chess knowledge for more experienced players. Strategic concepts lessons will help students build on core principles by focusing on they types of abstract problem-solving that is required to improve their chess play.
