PARENT REVIEWS

Best online chess school. Coaches are very patient and courteous. I recommend everyone who is looking for online learning opportunities. 1.5 years ago my son didn't even know how to move pieces, but now he has won the Texas state championship among kindergartners and many other tournaments. He improved his thinking skills and many tricks.


I really appreciate Mr. Akkozov for creating a great school where everyone can learn chess regardless of their location. This opportunity is available to everyone. Highly recommended.

Great online chess school! My kids have been with ABCHESS since covid time. Professional and very friendly staff, lessons are in the English language.


With advanced online software, that allows playing in tournaments with people from different countries, teachers can easily monitor the lessons and communicate with the class. The small-size classes almost provide one-to-one tutoring.


Highly recommended!

I cannot praise enough ABChess Online school that opened an entirely new world of fun, interaction, and a sharper mind for my 12 years old son, Danny, during the first days of the pandemic.

At first, I was slightly concerned about the level of interest when the kids were later split into smaller groups, however, my son's new teacher, Chingis, proved to be a worthy one indeed. He is an incredibly patient, fun, kind, and passionate teacher.

Danny looks forward to his weekly lessons as he not only learns and plays chess but gets to spend time with his friends from Switzerland, the USA, and the UK. I would highly recommend ABCHESS online school without hesitation!
