As a student, you will improve your understanding of chess and meet an experienced chess player. If you know what you want to learn in particular, your tutor can help with that topic specifically, but if not, they will prepare a general lesson for you. The tutoring schedule is fairly flexible.

Student Application: 



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).
