My 5th grader has been enjoying this class *very* much. He told me that he loves the fact that he is always learning new things in every class session. He also loves having the opportunity to play so many games and participate in tournaments. He does not yet have a good win rate against his fellow students, but he is obviously learning a lot because his play against other people has improved considerably. Most important, he's having fun with it.


We cannot think of anything.

The focus on learning each piece individually and the practice moves helped my daughter’s confidence and comfort to play.


No complaints; maybe adding an additional class or two a week instead of once a week.

My kids really disliked the class.


I think the thing that made them most uncomfortable was they felt like the instructor laughed at kids who made mistakes.
