Prodigy Program June 2017 – 1200

Registration for the June 2017 month of the Prodigy Program is still open for our 900+, 1200+, 1500+, and 1750+ Elo sections. Renown coach and commentator IM Lawrence Trent will also teach in the Prodigy Program this month.

Join the program that helped create the youngest-ever master in American history to take your chess skills to the next level. This is the last time a live, original Prodigy Program month will be offered. Starting in July 2017, we will roll out Prodigy Program 2.0 which will have a format different from the original program.

Testimonials:

We enrolled Christopher in Chess University’s Prodigy Program because we were looking for an organized and focused chess curriculum, which is pretty rare, but that’s exactly what we got! Today, Christopher stands as the youngest-ever chess master in American history and we couldn’t be more proud of him!

I really enjoyed having live lessons from the Prodigy Program coaches! The coaches helped me with my thought processes, like what I should be thinking about when looking at candidate moves. It was also fun to see what the other students in class were thinking about the positions during the lessons!

NM Christopher Yoo Youngest-ever chess master in American history

I developed an interest chess as an adult and was exploring alternatives for learning this fascinating game in an orderly and systematic way. I was willing to put in the time and effort, all I needed was a roadmap. I found that road map in The Chess University’s Prodigy program. The quality of the instruction is outstanding, but more important to me has been the disciplined nature of the program that has given me an opening repertoire, improved my tactical skills and developed my confidence in the end game. My online rating has increased over 400 points in less than a year and I feel like the sky is the limit. Thank you Kairav and the entire Chess University staff. I recommend the program to anyone seriously committed to improving at chess.

I have been a prodigy program member since Feburary. The value associated with this program FAR exceeds the 150 a month. Have you ever read a book where you really didn’t understand a certain thought process or move order and really wish you had someone really skilled to ask. Yup, we get that in our live lessons. Ever want your game reviewed/commentated by FM/NM/IM/GM, yup we get a couple of those a month. My personal opinion is that this program is fantastic for people who actually want to improve at the game.
