Why we are the best
What says our students
We love Raia Rooks Chess Academy! My son has been a student since the summer session and he loves going to his classes. He's learned so much in just a few short lessons and I really appreciate how well the coaches relate to the kids. They are patient, engaging, and take the time to make sure that the students are understanding what is being taught. I'm thrilled they are also gaining skills that will benefit them throughout life while learning a game they will be able to play forever.
My kids have been taking lessons with the Raia Rooks Chess Academy for over a year now and I am extremely pleased with the progress they are making. The coaches are knowledgeable, dedicated and fun to be around.
