Chess Instruction in New Jersey and New York City


A Trusted Name in
Scholastic Chess

“I’ve worked with Robert and Diplomat Chess for two years, and have employed them as private chess tutors for my elementary school aged son. During that time, I observed their instructors to be kind, patient, and understanding. Furthermore, they demonstrated an uncanny ability to make chess exciting and fun. My young son was hooked. As a graduate of Teachers College at Columbia University, and a veteran teacher of more than 15 years, I immediately pinpointed them as “naturals”. They truly shine when working with young children.” - Allison, Parent
