Course feedback


The explanation and PDFs were neat and thought it would be very useful when teaching the kids. I believe that these materials will improve the kid's chess skills and myself as well.

"Paul's mastery of the digital medium, sharing of multiple screens seamlessly is exemplary. It takes coordination and presence of mind and to do that over such an extended time period was great to experience. Enjoyable, lots of learning take place and I was astounded by the depth and breadth of resources available."
