Private Lessons - *WAITLIST*



Private lessons are a great way for players to improve their games. At DSM Chess we pride ourselves in our one-on-one coaching that is customized to meet the individual needs and goals of our students. We focus on tournament strategy, openings, endgames, tactics, positional play, and clock management in addition to fostering a love for the game. Coach Jim gives private lessons to students of all experience levels and guides parents as they navigate through the foreign and complex world of being a chess parent.
