Learn to play one of the world’s oldest and most challenging games—chess. Discover strategies that build a strong chess foundation, one piece at a time in a fun class!  Chess teaches discipline, responsibility, critical thinking and problem solving skills.  Students will be paired according to their age and ability.

Players will also learn
•        How to move the pieces
•        Different strategies & tactics
•        How to make most out their opportunities
•        How to turn bad situations to their advantage
•        How to accept setbacks and win/lose graciously


Private Chess Lessons are ideal for a child just learning to play chess, and to those who would like individual tutoring on how to improve their game!

Classes are designed to teach chess in a fun and interesting way appropriate for young minds. Absolute beginners welcome for careful guided instruction. Classes will be conducted by Mrs. Parul Shah who has taught throughout the Richmond area, and has coached students who have achieved awards in tournaments.  


The Chess Club for more experienced players includes individual guidance, monthly chess tournaments, Blitz, Simuals, pawn games, beginner, middle, and end games, chess club championships, and lectures.  Students will be grouped according to ability.
