Suitable for players with a good foundation of the rules of play, experience with tactics and strategies. In these sessions we will cover openings, progress through the weeks to middlegames and endgames. Each lesson will build on content learned from the last, when put together aims to provide a good base for improving the students' play overall. Take home worksheets will be given on select weeks.

Book week-to-week or by Term?

We understand scheduling activities can be difficult, so we offer the option to attend individual classes. While our sessions are independent enough for individual attendance, students will gain the most by attending a full term block, you see, our classes will be kept small so that each session can be tailored to the attending students and we will build on the students' progress week to week.

Jacob was very patient with the 3 generations that we were. Very clear and simplified the essence of chess.

Jacob packed a ton of value into a beginner's chess lesson. It's made all the difference and given me the foundations I need to continue learning and practicing more effectively. Thanks Jacob!
