Real stories from real people

Since 2005, Wyzant has provided a way for people to learn any subject in a way that works for them.

Debra A B.

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.
Namratha V.

27 Chess lessons

We were looking for a chess coach for our 6 year old son. Due to the pandemic, we did not want to take him for in person classes. We were a little skeptical about online chess. But wanted to give it a try. We got to know Dipankar through Wyzant. He uses a digital chess board on the screen to play and teach chess. He is very knowledgeable and easy to work with. He is very prompt. He adjusts the lessons according to the learning speed of our son. Overall, very pleased with the lessons.
