International Chess School
Professional Chess Course
Full, Unlimited Coach Support
Grandmaster Package™ is a professional, structured 13-month chess course with full chess coach support. This is like studying a series of chess courses following a structured training program and having the course creators in front of you. So, your questions will be immediately answered by a professional chess coach – at no extra cost.
The Chess Course Program
The course follows a complete, structured program for one year and one month (13 months). Download the course program.
The chess course is designed for about 7 hours of study and training per week. However, you can study at your own pace as you'll have life-time access to the course and teachers support.
The Chess Lessons
The course is really large and comes with a wide variety of materials that are of increasing complexity. The following samples are from the beginning of the course.
- Think Like a Strong Player - introduction
- Chess Strategy - first chess lesson
- Chess Tactics - first chess lesson
Using the written lessons (presented in PDF format), you can use a real chess board for study. This is strongly recommended by top grandmasters and elite chess coaches:
Garry Kasparov: "Solve using a board. Solve [problems] at the chess board - a real one - not at the computer screen. If you want to make real improvement, real progress, try to stick with chess pieces. [...] Make sure that you solve everything at the chess board."
The Chess Teachers
Subscribing to the Grandmaster Package, you'll have unlimited support from the chess teachers.
"I have taken lessons from a GM before and this is much more affordable and just as good. My rating is 2151 now and I can't thank you enough for the great information you have to offer." - Cody W.
As the course consists of advanced lessons and tests, you may want to discuss some lessons or positions. Great! As a student of our school, you'll get detailed answers and analysis from a professional chess coach. So, you save yourself $50/hour, the average cost of a personal chess tutor.
