More than half of the time was just spent on opening the chess-playing website and solving technical glitches. The left over time was spent on connecting the players to play the game. I think this class only served the purpose of learning that one of the websites exists where kids can play chess. My kid lost interest after sitting for more than half an hour and just listening to how to connect to the website. It wasn't interesting for us I had already created an account before the class started.

My child has been in this class for weeks now and his love of and ability in math continues to grow. I cannot say enough good things about Cole and his instruction. During these crazy times with ‘school’ I am at least at peace knowing my child is being challenged and pushed in Math. Many thanks Cole and Testing Mom.


Keeping offering it.

Engaging instructor. Very funny (and that’s what keeps the kids interested!) works to keep my child’s focus. Besides, she is learning chess rules with silly songs which is a great way to learn for any age
