Accelerate your learning >>

With over 45 years of experience, GM Susan Polgar knows the clearest and most efficient way of teaching chess, pretty much at any level, but especially at scholastic chess.

In this course, Susan shares an entire lifetime of chess and starts right at the basics. Each of the 30 lessons runs at about 10-15 minutes each, introducing you to a new concept while building on your knowledge step-by-step as you go along.

As Susan mentions, there are thousands of teachers, coaches, and parents trying to teach their kids or students how to play chess, but the problem is that they really don’t have the experience or tools they need for them to be able to teach chess efficiently.

GM Susan Polgar will share all the experience that she has acquired throughout her entire life in order to provide you the most efficient system for teaching chess from the basics.

How is this going to help me?

If you’re a complete beginner and want to start learning how to play chess the right way, or maybe you are a school teacher or a chess coach who want to have an effective system for teaching your students how to play chess, even if you simply want to teach your own kids at home, but want to do it the right way, this course is the perfect tool for you.

GM Susan Polgar, without any doubt, one of the best coaches in the world, will cover all the basics and will make sure there’s no gap left without being covered during this learning process.

She will first introduce the viewer to the chessboard and each one of the pieces that they’ll find in a chess game. Then she moves on to cover some basic tactics and strategy concepts.

Susan will also provide the viewer with opening tips, such as what to do in the opening, what not to do, and some important endgame techniques that any beginner should learn when starting to play chess.
