Lessons for Individuals (Now offering online lessons on Zoom)

We specialize in private lessons. Utilizing the right balance of tailored curriculum, patience, practice, and hard work, we have helped completely inexperienced players become champions. Chess lessons are taught by USCF National Expert John Hendrick. Along with teaching chess to children for over a decade, John is now offering chess lessons for adults.  

“It's not easy to find a teacher like Coach John from Foundation Chess. My child went from beginner to one of the top players in the nation under Coach John's guidance."
