Palm Beach Chess has a commitment to excellence. We have seen personally how chess can change lives and we take great passion in our work. The results in tournaments speak of only one type of success. We teach children the value of hard work and provide life-skills that will last a lifetime.
Become A Chess Champion
At Palm Beach Chess we put a focus on learning life skills through a rigorous academic chess curriculum taught by experienced instructors. We have a philosophy about the learning process, work ethic, and passion required to become the best version of yourself.
Everyone knows what they SHOULD be doing but only champions DO what they should be doing. Only 1% of chess players become Masters...are you ready to begin your Journey?
Our commitment to excellence is in our attention to detail with our students. Not only do we provide tailored chess instruction to every individual, we make ourselves available during competition to keep students at peak psychological form. This is not only for Florida Chess players in person but available to anyone via our online chess instructional lessons.
We feel strongly about Instructor - Student bond, we as instructors do not use a one size fits all approach and students are actively involved in the planning process for their growth. On our end, lessons are a collaboration among instructors to assure the most efficient development possible for all of out students.
When contacting us about lessons please answer the following questions:
What is your name, age, current school (if applicable)?
What is your over-the-board rating? (USCF / FIDE)
What is your Chess.com or Lichess.org username?
How long have you been playing chess/ do you have tournament experience?
What are your short-term and long-term goals in chess?
Are you a resident of Florida seeking in person lessons or online lessons?
What is the cost of your instructor's lessons?
We have a range of instructors ready to meet student needs. In conjunction with the questions above, we go through an interview process with parents and or student to find out which instructor from our staff will be the best fit.
Our lessons range from $50/1hr to $100/1hr based on the instructor's credentials.
Please contact us for more information and a consultation lesson at Palm Beach Chess Instructors or click the link below the video for more information on instructor credentials.
Will you come to our home for lessons? Palm Beach Chess instructors schedule lessons in a public location for safety and transparency for both staff and students (online lessons are always an option). Our staff are to make no exceptions for this rule.
My child is 4-6 years old, do you have an instructor available? We have a large volume of requests from parents for instructors and almost always it is a request for in-person lessons. We very rarely take on new students in this age range who are not already competing in US Chess events. We offer group programs at the COX Science Center and Aquarium for first time players. Keep an eye on our upcoming events calendar and social media for the registration page on these programs.
