4 Chess lessons
I did not know that James taught chess. The first thing we did was to play a game of chess to review my strength and weakness. He attempted to teach me how to count the pieces on the board and what pieces were under attack. Where there other pieces protecting those pieces. Look for open files and diagonal for the rooks, bishops, Queen. Look for good moves and find a the best movie. Look for hanging pieces. Suggested playing live chess a move a day.
Dr. Eugene taught me:
How to set up the chess board. Chess notation.
At this point, we’ve experimented with a dozen chess classes and apps, and Jonathan stands apart knowing the right way to teach her not just memorization, but real understanding. We’re happy to be working with him regularly and look forward to our daughter’s great progress (even after 2 sessions, she’s quoting him, excited about different chess moves, and thinking differently about the game).
