“It is fantastic - I never thought that I would ever learn how to play...thank you for being such a great teacher! We at first watched a Masterclass taught by Gary Kasparov and didn't learn a thing!”

—Kathi K.

“I'm excited to try this out with my daughters! I want to teach them without boring them or destroying their interest in the game which, I'm finding, is surprisingly difficult....Teaching chess is a game in itself!”
