My daughter loves her classes and virtual lessons have been a blessing during the Covid pandemic. Everyone is so supportive, responsive, and really get to know the students and their strengths as well as areas of strategy that need improvement. I highly recommend New England Chess School.
New England Chess School offers fun, interactive classes with amazing teachers. Their platform for online lessons is secure and streamlined so my son can easily navigate lessons on his own and always looks forward to them. The teachers bring history, strategy and personal attention to the small group sessions that keep my son learning and engaged. I highly recommend their programs!
We've had an amazing experience with this chess school. Our 9 year old son started attending their on-line classes during covid-19 epidemic. His game improved a lot in just one month. The teachers are great, and our always looks forward to the classes. From parent's perspective, the school has been extremely easy to work with (registration, class make-ups, etc).
New England Chess School is excellent at many levels: structured program, superb instructors, and engaged students. Our son looks forward to his times at NECS, which is the strongest endorsement a parent can provide for an after school activity.
My son has deeply enjoyed these classes (he has done two years of online chess with Jared Becker who is a patient, helpful, encouraging, and entertaining teacher. The school is reliable with no cancelations, and very customer-friendly, always ready to answer questions and communicate very effectively. My son (age 8) has learned not just how to play chess competitively, but also how to understand the game deeply and to appreciate its history. I would highly recommend.
