Ryan and Johnny study chess in LA from Atousa Pourkashiyan, their mother say about what she feeling about her children chess class here :
My name is Jennifer York, and our sons’ names are Ryan and Johnny. They are 9 and 8 respectively. We live in Los Angeles.
My older son had been taking chess at school, and really enjoyed it. I reached out to the LA Chess Club, and Atousa was highly recommended to our family. We chose Atousa initially because of that recommendation, and because of her skill level. Once we started taking lessons we would not study with anyone else. Her patience, professionalism, and incredible teaching abilities have not only made our sons better players, but they also continue to enjoy the learning process and playing.
Playing chess gives our sons a sense of great accomplishment. It encourages them to think, and problem solve in ways they otherwise wouldn’t. It has also taught them incredible patience.
Aside from all of those things, its a fun activity that our entire family can enjoy together.
