Whether you are a just a beginner or an advanced level expert, Accel Learning’s Chess classes are for all. We currently offer Chess classes for all age groups and levels.
Why play Chess?
Chess has long been the game of gentleman, geniuses, philanthropists and other gifted people. This has formed an incredibly wide misconception around the word that ONLY geniuses and gifted people can play the game and it is strictly designed for them.
The reality of chess is different – it actually is an incredibly beneficial pastime, because playing chess results in better brain function, improved memory and cognitive abilities, strategic thinking and attention improvement.
Accel Learning Chess Classes are offered to students of all ages and skill level.
During the class, students learn the techniques and strategies of playing chess by playing against each other, against the teacher and also get printed game plays for practice at home.
There are 3 skills levels. Depending on the student’s ability and skill, they would be placed at the appropriate level.
Basic level – This is where students new to chess would start. Here they learn the basics of chess, rules and techniques to play. Once they gain a level of expertise, the students move to the next level
Intermediate level – Students already familiar with chess and have demonstrated a certain level of skill get to this level. In this level, the students hone their skills with exercises, competing with advanced level students and practicing at home with exercises provided by us.
Advanced level – Students who have consistently shown wins against advanced students enter this level. Advanced students get a chance to represent us at Chess competitions at state, national and even global levels.
Our class sizes are kept at a minimum to allow for personalized attention.
