ONLINE CLASSES SPRING SESSION

STARTS THE WEEK OF MARCH 28 AND ENDS MAY 25

I love teaching kids in person, but I have learned that remote classes have definite advantages as well:

  • different levels of instructions

  • often possible to make up a missed class

  • students can switch to a different level if appropriate

  • fewer distractions

Classes are about 40-45 minutes, plus 15-20 minutes playing time.

All students receive full privileges of a chesskid.com Gold membership – play games with other kids (and with Mr. V!) and access instructional videos & puzzles.

Beginner❖ Mondays at 4:30 p.m.

Kids should know how the pieces move, but they may still be new or relatively new to chess. The class reviews all of the rules and covers basic checkmates and tactics.
