Private Lessons


Our purpose of a private lesson goes beyond the simple teaching of chess. For each student we develop a personalized program that includes tactics, strategy, endgames, openings and play time (Lessons typically last 60 minutes and are divided into short segments). Personalized work gives us the opportunity to increase your progress rate by correcting weaknesses and reinforcing strengths as well as observing psychological factors such as motivation, confidence and emotional intelligence.

Group Lessons

Group lessons are a fun way to learn chess with your friends and meet new ones. These are classified according to age and chess level and are planned accordingly. Each level includes a 1-hour lesson weekly or twice a week during each academic semester.  The player who successfully completes the program can move on to the next level.

Our program adapts to the different ages and abilities of children, and we focus on making it easy and fun.
