School Chess Coaching

Above:  Schools Recognize Benefits of Chess

Smart Dolphins Chess can provide professional coaches to conduct chess lessons each term at your school, held on a weekly basis.

Lessons are thoroughly enjoyed by children and help to develop logical reasoning skills, plus enhances other academic skills such as math.

Our school chess lessons are usually held before school, after school or during lunch time, but we also can hold lessons as a part of the schools curriculum or as a special enrichment program during school time or for gifted and talented children.

Children pay just $6 per lesson to participate ($60 for a ten week term) , or alternatively some schools prefer to fund the program themselves at a cost of $90 per session.

Here are some testimonials from other school staff just like you:

“Students are highly engaged and motivated during the lessons and eagerly await the opportunity to demonstrate their developing skills to friends and parents. Brendan and Ron have done a fantastic job working with our students and have established a very positive and professional relationship with them.

We highly recommend Smart Dolphins Chess to any school community that wants to provide students with more varied learning experiences which cater for different learning styles and needs”.

“Ronald Scott from Smart Dolphins Chess has been tutoring our junior
school students from years 2 to 6 every Monday afternoon during term
time since the beginning of the year. He has a composed demeanour and I have found him to be patient, encouraging and clear in his instructions
to students. He provides variety in his lesson plans and his program is
clear and structured, allowing students of varying abilities to learn
the skills of chess. His is well liked by the students and parents.”
