The benefits of chess for children is well-documented. Children who play chess have been shown to outperform their peers in English and Maths and to have better-developed social skills.
Beginner students are taught more complex ideas, such as opening moves, tactics, and planning in a fun environment where teamwork is encouraged. Their chess class begins with an interactive lesson using hanging a demonstration board.
For Intermediate students, their chess class begins with an interactive lesson using projector and laptops with Chess Software. Students then have the opportunity to put these new strategies into practice by playing chess games with their peers and receiving personal feedback from their coach.
Students are encouraged to write down their moves in competition games so that the coach can analyze their games in detail. This is extremely helpful for improving a student's standard of play, as the coach can identify and explain strengths and weaknesses in the student's play so that both coach and student are aware of which areas need further development to become a complete chess player.
Students also will work on puzzles and different class exercise to help develop their:
^ Concentration ^ Teamwork
^ Planning ^ Problem Solving

Private classes are particularly useful for players who wish to improve their game rapidly, or for those who are already at a strong level and need help with particular topics such as openings, middle and endgame strategies or just help to analyze games. A private coach can assist in choosing and developing an opening repertoire, depending on the student's style of play, explaining typical tactical and strategically themes involved, and also possible plans for the middle game for both colors. Private coaching is also an ideal setting for the student to ask questions, in which the coach can cater for their individual needs.
Fees - RM100-RM150 / hour @ max 4 person
