Class Experience

Students will be able to play a game of Chess using basic moves.
Mr. Rafael is originally from Brazil and currently lives in the U.S. He is a Psychology and Organizational Behavior graduate of the Washington University in St. Louis with a focus on Education and Memory Recall.
He has tutored students ages 6-14 in many subjects, including Math, Chess, and Coding. He uses a Facilitator teaching style, focusing on student engagement and activities for the students. 
He is an avid Chess player ranking in the 97.5% percentile and former child tournament winner.
We recommend students spend at least 1 hour a week practicing puzzles or playing games. Practice between classes is what will help each student improve at Chess and maintain an interest in the game.
Chess games must be played on a laptop or a computer. If your child has access to 2 devices they can enter the Outschool Zoom room via a tablet or smartphone, then use a laptop or computer for the digital chessboard. A account will be created for your child. If you already have an account please keep it for your personal use. It is easier for the students to play each other if they use an account create by our teacher.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
We do not provide written feedback to families regarding their students skill development. Students will play using or If you already have an account please keep it for your personal use. We are unable to store student information including scores/ rankings. Having your own personal account for use at home offers a good way for students to practice in between lessons.
