< RETURN TO COURSES

This fun class is designed and paced especially for beginner chess players and those with minimal chess experience. Led by International Master Tatiana Duarte Brea, students will learn the rules of chess quickly by playing a series of interactive mini‐games, which gradually introduce more complex elements and ideas. With the fundamentals established, students will play lots of chess and practice a wide range of tactics including important checkmate patterns. Students will complete this class with a firm grasp of the rules of chess, opening principles and basic endgames. Emphasis will be placed on critical thinking and problem solving.
