About This Class

Have you ever been in a situation where your opponent makes a move, and you immediately said oh-no, how did I miss that?

In this class, I want to help you avoid that, and take advantage of your opponent's mistakes.

Here are the two most exciting parts of a player's early chess journey

1. Take your opponent's pieces off the board

2. Checkmate your opponent's king

In this class we will use the questioning approach to find opportunities to checkmate and win your opponent's pieces.
