My son has been enrolled with the school for approximately 7 months now and he has really enjoyed the experience, plus he has improved his game a lot. The teaching methods adapted for children strike the right balance and help the kids improve and enjoy with the game.

I have been a student at this academy for many years now and has guided me to many achievements. The academy helped me with my university applications as I can put the awards I received and competitions I had done. The classes had even compelled me to write a research paper on chess and history. My teacher Mr. G kept me passionate for learning and competing in chess. I was able to have an amazing mentor throughout the years and my chess skills have immensely improved since I started here. Highly recommend as this academy was like a second academic home to me.

My kid loves playing chess and learning chess with Vancouver Chess School. Their online class allows the students to learn from home and I appreciate they have a great website for the students to practice and do chess homework. They can attend tournaments as well to play games with other players.

Vancouver Chess School is a great platform for kids who love chess. My little girl enjoys the time learning and playing chess at VCS. The coaches are very experienced and patient with kids. The training program is well designed that suits chess learners of different levels. Online classes and on-site classes are both available for the parents to choose from, very flexible. There’s online homework, class material after each class, and kids can practice on the Chess Hero platform any time they want. Aside from the regular class, I also encourage my daughter to participate the tournaments, so she can challenge other chess players and have a lot of fun. Highly recommend!

This school is fantastic! Both of my boys love it so much. Great website design with its own chess homework, practice games and online challenges. Many of chess events for kids to have opportunities to play with others. Great teachers, great school!

Our older son got curious about chess earlier this year - in the middle of the pandemic - and so we were happy to learn that Vanchess offered all classes in virtual form. After some cautious initial attempts at a private lesson and some group lessons he became more and more motivated and immersed, in no small part to the quality and breadth of activity offered by the school including group lessons, private lessons, many tournaments and camps during the holidays and pro-D days (!!these are especially welcome!!). Nowadays, our son would probably do chess 12 hours a day if we would let him. All teachers we had contact with interacted very well with the children, keeping classes intereactive and fun, but clearly enabling them to learn -- our son is improving at an incredible pace. A special shout-out must go to Gyan who displays truly angelic patience during classes and tournament organisation. I wish I could display the same patience when I'm teaching my next calculus class tomorrow ...)
