USCF Chess Master, Gjon Feinstein teaches chess classes using a building- block approach. This offers children immediate successes they can string together into comprehensive chess strategies. As they focus on improving their chess game, students learn to trust their judgment and intuition in determining their game plans. They also develop patience, flexibility, discipline and a creative outlook which carries over into many other areas of their school work and personal life. The outcome is a student with more confidence and self esteem.
