How Group lessons are formed...

Updated: Oct 1, 2019

We are excited to introduce Group Lessons for all levels – Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced level players. Our group lessons are like no other as our class sizes are intentionally designed to be small (groups of 6 to 12 students) for better learning through more one-on-one interaction between students and our instructors. Our group lessons are offered for 6 different levels of players:Level 1 Beginner (CFC Rating <600)Level 2 Beginner (CFC Rating 601 – 900) Level 3 Intermediate (CFC Rating 901 – 1200) Level 4 Intermediate (CFC Rating 1201 – 1500)Level 5 Advance (CFC Rating 1500 – 1800)Level 6 Advance (CFC Rating 1800 – 2100)The group classes run once a week – 1 hour of lessons per week. Below are some of the objectives and lesson outcomes for students who participate in our group program:-40 min of structured curriculum-based lesson & exercises and 20 min of recorded game-All students registered in an online group class for additional lessons and play time outside of class (Online registration fee isn't included in lesson fees)-Professional Chess Boards will be provided-Monitoring of students’ progress with reports provided to parents – one at mid-term and the other at end of term-All students to participate in mini CFC rated tournaments-Build confidence for students to participate in other CFC and FIDE rated tournaments-Group lesson curriculum covers Opening, Middle game and End game techniques-Guaranteed improvement for students who actively participate by completing lessons, exercises and assignments
