Meet the Coaches
Yvonne learned the amazing game of chess in 2009. In the Spring of 2010 she attended a F.I.D.E. International training seminar, and obtained the title of Developmental Instructor. She then began teaching chess in after-school programs and summer camps in Atlanta. Not until that time did she begin to enjoy the full value of chess, and what the game has to offer to children and families. From there she also volunteered with a hospice company teaching and playing chess with senior players.
Warren began learning the wonderful game of chess at the Atlanta Chess Center. The Atlanta Chess Center was not only a great way to socialize, but also offered affordable entertainment he so desperately needed during the recession of 2008. He has coached children through after-school programs in Atlanta. He has also worked with seniors through a nursing home in New Jersey.
Chess is a chimera, a fabulous mystery, ever medieval yet eminently modern, a moving myth. While all at once a sport that edifies, a science that engages, and an art that enlightens, chess is a game that anyone can play, an ennobling quest for all who venture it.
I have been playing chess since I was eight years old and I have been teaching chess for more than twenty years. I teach chess using verbal instruction and videos of fundamental techniques of how to move the pieces and strategizes of how to play the game but the best way to learn chess is by playing the game.
