Our group lessons are designed to impart excellent Chess Coaching while taking your budget into consideration. All 5 levels of our Foundation Course consists of 24 lessons each to be completed over a period of 3 months for continuity and for the students to progress from one level to another. (more information on levels on our curriculum page). Our Masters Course has 4 levels with 96 lessons each recommended to be completed over 12 months.
Lessons are conveniently conducted online via Zoom so that your child can learn from the comfort and safety of your home. Our coaches are highly experienced FIDE-rated chess players with several years of teaching experience.
Starting 2023, all our sessions will have rolling enrollment with multiple start dates to choose from every month.
Foundation Course Levels will contain 24 lessons of 45 min each.
Masters Course Level will contain 96 lessons of 45 minutes each.
Groups will be carefully formed based on skill and age and will consist of only 4 students.
Each group will meet TWICE a week for lessons.
Typically, most students will move from one course level to another after completing one session. For example, a student learning at the Beginner Level during Spring 2023 will be ready for the Beginner-Intermediate Level for the next session.

Students enrolling in the ThinkChess program for the first time may be invited for a Free Level Assessment session to ensure that they are placed in the correct group.
Please note: It’s extremely important to ensure that all students in a group are of the same or similar chess level. Hence, we may contact you to give you the option of time slots that are more suitable as per your child’s chess level and age.
