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. You can create a ChessKid.com account at home for practice and for personal use.
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. If your kid already has an online Chess 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.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
We do not provide written feedback to families regarding their students skill development.
