The cost for a one hour group lesson is $35.00 per student. Or, for students who take regular lessons, $100.00 paid at the beginning of the month. If a student misses a class, a brief (about 10 minutes) lesson by phone is scheduled to cover the most important material missed. Students will need a chess set at home for this.

A note on group lessons.
The hour consists of a lesson designed for the level of the students in the group, followed by friendly games between students. If students are interested, they may play rated games with each other.
Our students tend to study chess the way one studies an instrument: weekly lessons reinforced by practice (puzzles and problems to solve) at home.
However, homework is not necessary, and those students who simply want to play and get pointers are welcome to participate.
