As a tutor, you will be able to review your chess skills, improve your teaching skills, and have a greater connection with the chess community. Hours are flexible, so you could be tutoring anywhere between 30 minutes to four hours a week depending on how many students you want to tutor. As a certified non-profit organization, we provide community service hours and the Presidential Volunteer Service Award (please contact us for more details).
