<-- about the
We make kids into Chess Engineers!
They come here to learn how to win.
Dollar$ for Dollar$ it's better than a Harvard Education!

Cost and location are fixed, no changes!
$60/per 1 hour one-on-one session Usually 1 session per week.
These are
one-on-one sessions not classes. All the attention
for the hour is to one student.
Where: @Littleton/Starbucks/Point.

We have 14 kids so far. 5/girls 9 boys.
All like the one-on-one as opposed to the chess classroom.

Kids learn different than adults: requires patience, repetition,
kid communication and more patience.
One of the many teaching methods I use is the 'Mastery
Method'. A student learns at their own pace. They move on
after they learn 100% of the subject. No rush.

For their hard, hard word, the students
obtain: Organizational skills, multi-threaded vision, over the
board creativity, time discipline, sight calculation, logic
problem solving, study habits, work ethic, competition and
contentment that they have learned something special that
few others have.

Put down the video games. Turn off the electronic devices
and power up the mind with chess!
..My teaching methods combined with insider knowledge you
won't find in books, online or inefficientchessclassrooms.
Simply look at the credentials, course description, reviews
and then compare.
Start increasing your calculation and visualization power
soon after starting the class.
Students are taught to attack the king aggressively! With
advanced gambits, hyper-engineering and reverse
engineering. All combined with warp speed multi-threading.
Their attacks are lethal. They are induced to calculate like
René Descartes. Use his thought process over the board;

-[ Rule VIII ] --- If in the matters to be examined we come to a step in the series
of which our understanding is not sufficiently well able to have an intuitive  
cognition, we must make no attempt to examine what follows; thus we shall
spare ourselves superfluous labour. He will attend carefully to every source of
deception in order that he maybe on his guard. He will also enumerate exactly
all the ways leading to truth which lie open to us, in order that the may follow
the right way.---
René Descartes

Imagine like a Da Vinci [ block all out before committing to a
strategy, then execute the attack / ex: Last Supper
preparation].  Utilize and betterment old world philosophies
of a Capablanca, Fischer and Tal. To conserve some of your
energy by using feel.
When playing these kids, if you are lucky enough to survive
the first 15 happy!
Because odds are you won't survive the second 15.
They are becoming masters of the chess clock and starting to
see everything. They'll watch your eyes for movement and
The kids are destined not simply to be mere future

After a few lessons each subsequent lesson will start with end
game theory and examples. The student will play them back
with full understanding. Each session has practice games that
are interactively analyzed. After the basic tactics
and strategies have been learned the student learns 2
openings per week. Example: Kings Gambit, Ruy Lopez,
Sicilian Defense, French Defense, Danish Gambit...
By now they are super confident and thinking fast and clear.
Now they can be taught anything even at the sub level
without much talk just by pointing the movement of pieces. It
is where deflection techniques and seeing into opponent
psychology enters. To adjust on the fly.
In the future the old Grandmaster USCF rating of 2800 will
be 3200.

When the student is ready they have the opportunity to play a
multi-game match with other students at the Point. They are
more than willing to match-up//// Now they are armed with
many weapons and want to exercise their new found
skills with much confidence.
Of course someone must lose. However they are taught the
methods to extract so much learnings from a win OR a loss.
Either way they win! They are happy.

This weeks chess lesson most kids learned more advanced
checkmate patterns, 4 chess openings - The Kings
Gambit, The Ruy Lopez, The Sicilian Defense and
the French Defense. Next week the highly anticipated
dangerous but exciting attacking opening: The Danish
Gambit. They also learned the art of chess deflection [Where
you induce and seduce your opponents pieces to a certain
direction only to show the method to your madness.] --too
cool. Next week the art of chess deception... What your
opponent sees on the chess board isn't the truth!... Diabolical.
Donate any amount so we can make
more wonderful sci-fi and chess films!!
They average 8 years old.

Hi Lawrence - if there’s any way to get her into a solo
spot, we would definitely prefer that.  She has loved
the lessons.  Please let me know if that’s possible.
Perhaps a Sunday spot?

We can think of expanding the numbers for next time
and letting everyone know at the school the class size
before we start.  
I am hearing good things about your class.
