Level 1: Chess basics, the learner knows nothing about chess. In this class, we cover how all the pieces move, what they like to do, and their relationship to each other.

Level 2: The learner knows how all the pieces on the chess board move. In this class, we cover how to play a full game, what sequences to use in the beginning, and how to make an effective plan.

Level 3: The learner should already know how pieces move + basic strategy. In this class, we cover piece valuation, even and uneven material exchanges, and grit - the benefit of being strong after winning/losing.
