Chess Classes

Chess is fun, and playing the game teaches responsibility, improves discipline, and sharpens thinking  skills. It also builds confidence and helps young people make new friends. Colleges and universities often look at constructive extra-curricular activities such as chess when deciding between scholarship candidates. Chess exercises both the creative right-brain and the logical left-brain, making it the perfect activity to strengthen reasoning and innovation skills. As you progress in the field of chess, your mental abilities excel, and you will notice daily obstacles become increasingly simple to figure out.

Whether you’re an aspiring Grandmaster or a complete novice, LMLC has the class for you.

      Both of my kids are attending the LMLC school since September 2017. The owner Olga is extremely pleasant to deal with - she is very accommodating and flexible.
    The additional kudos goes to my daughter's geometry teacher Fedor. It's hard to make a teenager girl enthusiastic about math but he keeps her engaged, which helps enormously to maintain a solid A in 9th grade Geometry Honors class of her regular school.  Thank you, Olga and Fedor for your help!
    I am very satisfied and recommend LMLC to anyone who wants to give their kids a high quality extra curriculum.

      My daughter attends the LMLC school specifically for math and English.  I've seen her grades improve over time.  Both teachers are excellent and very patient with her.  The owner is always willing to help and is proactive with checking in to make sure that all is well.  I would definitely recommend this school to those that are looking to help improve their kids grades.

      My son has been going to LMLC since fall of 2018, he loves it.  

    The teachers are wonderful and his English skills have improved tremendously.  

    Ms. Olga has been very accommodating.  

    I've referred this place to many of our families and friends! Keep up the good work LMLC!

    thumb Loan Y.

      My 6 year old son was having reading, writing and math classes with Teacher Teresa for the last six months. We couldn't be happier. He is reading independently, his writing and math skills improved so much. Every class Teresa made exciting, engaging and fun, my son was so happy after every single class. She is a wonderful teacher, we would highly recommend her!
