Class Experience

During my junior and senior year, I was part of my high school's chess club where we played chess, went over strategies/tactics and watched professional tournament games. I also play chess online in several official platforms like, Chess24 and LiChess. I have been studying the game of chess through books, videos, online classes, puzzles and of course practicing over the board. My ratings in are currently 1350 in Bullet (1 minute chess) and 1500 in Rapid (10 minute chess). I am also the co-founder and Vice President of my university's chess team.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
