I highly recommend Chess Wizard. My son is 6 and he enjoyed the classes very much.

I am a huge fan of Chess Wizards. My son, now six, has grown so much in the past year not only in the game of chess. He is learning life skills such as sportsmanship, intuition, patience, strategy, mentorship, and kindness. We love teacher John!!

Chess Wizards was an incredible program. The instructor was great with the kids and made it fun for them. They learned strategies and the ability to think moves ahead. Both my 5 year old and 8 year old enjoyed the experience. 

Business response:

Thank you so much Jessica! We are confident that your kids will develop their logical and strategical thinking! Also helps to improve mathematical skills ;-)

My daughter loves chess immediately after a couple of classes with chess wizards. She truly enjoys it and asked me to play with her all the time!

My son loves Chess Wizards. It's fun walking by the classroom and hearing 12 children laughing and cheering and realizing it's all because they are loving their time in chess club. They teach so much strategy and how to play alternate way. I'm really hoping they will start the club back up at AALM soon. All the kids miss it.
