- $39 for one month of children’s chess classes (a $139 value)<p>
Designed for beginner players aged 5–14, the chess program relies on educational principles and cognitive-development theory to help kids grasp the basics of chess. Students learn how to move pieces, use pieces in concert, and develop a strategy during 45 minutes of instruction and 30 minutes of practice and play. One month of classes includes four sessions available by appointment.<p>
At Agora Chess, young students' minds are continually packed with new information, much like their school lockers are somehow always replenished with loose-leaf paper of indeterminate origin. Agora currently enlightens blossoming thinkers primarily through its chess program, though it has plans to offer tutoring and a science club in the near future. In chess classes, children learn the game's basics, including how to move pieces, take notes, and devise a strategy. These skills translate into players' everyday lives by helping develop a sharper memory and a knack for problem solving and creativity.
