Online Chess Classes Policy & Frequently Asked Questions

When is tuition payment due?

Tuition payments are due before classes begin.  However, we do make exceptions under special circumstances.  For example, those who qualify for financial assistance who would like to request a payment plan option, etc.  Please contact us if you feel you have a special circumstance and would like assistance.  We will be more than happy to work with you to best accommodate your needs. 

Can my son/daughter take a trial class before deciding to join the class?

Unfortunately, we do not offer trial classes.

Can my child just take one or two classes and pay a drop-in fee per class?

Sorry, we do no offer drop-in fee / pay-per-class option.

Do you have different pricing for siblings?

We do not have a different pricing structure for siblings. We keep it a simple per student rate.

What is the difference between your chess classes vs. a chess club?

Our chess classes are much different than the standard “chess club”.  In many chess clubs, members simply get together and play chess.  Our chess classes have a great deal of instructional content.   Every class, we teach different chess concepts, ideas, techniques, and strategies.  Students have plenty of opportunity to practice using this knowledge during their practice time.  Often the concepts build on one another, which is why we typically do not allow students to join the chess program too late in the course (no later than missing the first 2 classes).

What happens if a student misses a class? Are there Make-up Classes?

We do not offer make up classes for our online classes. However, it is no problem if a student is unable to attend a particular class. Lesson content for missed classes is available upon request. If a student misses a class(es), they may request access to that day’s lesson content. They will be provided online access to the lesson content that can be watched at their convenience, so they won’t miss anything!

What is your Refund Policy?

Please understand that there are no refunds. However, access to lesson content from missed classes are available upon request. (Please see above.)
