What do others say about us ?

I found MM Chess via a google search and decided to take a plunge with a trial class. I am sooooo happy I took that leap of faith and gave it a try.First and foremost, we love the teacher my daughter was paired with! My daughter looks forward to the class every week.  She is patient, so good with helping my 6 year old sit for an hour and understand the concepts, motivated her when needed and provides inspiration to my daughter as well.We are taking it at a pace that works for us and my daughter’s schedule and MM chess is awesome at that.  When ready we may even look into tournaments and pursue the journey my daughter chooses.

Our son started learning chess at MM chess from last year with Yeison and he has truly enjoyed learning the game and improved his game skills and strategy well. Yeison is accountable, energetic, and knowledgeable teacher and he handles the kids beautifully and friendly and keeps the kids’ attention so well. Remote based class format works perfectly for us and make easy during busy evening schedule rather than in-person. Highly recommend signing up for a MM class.

It has been an amazing experience with MM chess. My son's coach GABRIEL is phenomenal. He can interact with my son teaching him how to play but also helping him to develop skills and strategies to be an effective player. There is no problem for him to sit and play 45ish minutes over the zoom...he loves it! Thank you MM Chess.  Happy and appreciated parent!
