A typical class consists of:

  • A thematic talk based on an instructive classic or contemporary game.
  • Tactical puzzles and endgame challenges for the class to solve and work out together.
  • In the first class, I give the students an online simultaneous, so as I can assess the relative strength of each student and decide on the course curriculum.
  • In the second class, we begin a weekly competition with prizes for the winners at the end of the term.
  • Parents and/or a teacher will be emailed a pdf of the class lesson that can be printed of at the end of each class, so students can go over the weekly lessons and build up their chess knowledge through independent further study if they so wish.
