Online Classes

NYSCC is offering online weekly lessons to New York City chess students.
We have been running 40+ lessons a week since the end of March for students over "Zoom".
We were one of the first chess programs to be fully up and running and it shows in how successful our classes have been.
Here are a few emails we have received from parents:
“Thanks for continuing offering the zoom classes for the kids. I found that your chess classes were the most effective and ran the best on the zoom platform among many classes we had "online" during the last couple of weeks. They are very much appreciated.” – Janice, 4th grade parent

“The silver lining of all of this has been chess. Your Zoom classes are amazing… Thank you for offering even more classes than before. We really appreciate what you are doing for the kids, and it helps me get my work done too!” - Karen, 1st grade parent

"Thank you so so so much for keeping these classes going! Not only does my son love them but it gives me a bit of time to myself!"- Becky, 1st grade parent
