Praveena is very adept in identifying the kid's pace and then adjusts her classes accordingly irrespective of whether it is a group class or individual class. She has an innate ability in bringing kids up to speed in a group class. Extremely patient and takes extra care to help the kids learn chess in a fun and interactive way. My son age 5 picked up chess very well and is now hooked on to playing it every day.
My daughter played the match for the first time. It was a useful experience for her. She remembered and applied, whatever mam taught her during coaching classes. She enjoys the session. Thank you.
Thanks for the feedback mam and we are equally excited as him that he has shown interest in chess. All this while having been into outdoor games like skating we see this as a new found interest he is liking to develop. Thanks so much for your patience with him and appreciate your wonderful classes.
