Larry is a very competent and punctual teacher. He has an
amazing patience to work with little kids! Very leveled.
Instantly found an approach to my daughter (6YO) and she
had progress from the very first lesson. We are on 4th month
of lessons now. She loves it.

Larry is an excellent teacher/coach and has made learning
chess fun and engaging for my daughter.

Hi Lawrence,

Leighton enjoyed the lesson and asked to continue. I'm not
sure who enjoyed it more him or dad?

Dan told me he noticed Leighton's imagination drifted several
times, so as long as you can work with that and keeping him
focused doesn't bother you, we'd like to continue.

Hi Deepthi,

After a good double rook checkmate at the start by Matthew, Dhriti came
back with a couple draws then 2 excellent checkmates.
One was a smothered checkmate with a knight that she announced and the
2nd a queen and knight checkmate which she also announced.
good job!

Must sign up by sending email to Or message on
facebook/littletonchess. Send a message even if considering. Can always of course change your mind.

Also; we have our very popular one-on-one beginner lessons for kids with less than 1 year experience.   Ages 4-12.
We make kids into Chess Engineers!
They come here to learn how to win.
Dollar$ for Dollar$ it's better than a Harvard Education!

Cost and location are fixed, no changes!
$40/per 1 hour one-on-one session. Usually 1 session per week.
These are
one-on-one sessions not classes. All the
attention for the hour is to one student.
Where: @Littleton/Starbucks/Point.

We have 14 kids so far. 6/female 8 male.
All like the one-on-one as opposed to the chess classroom.

Kids learn different than adults: requires patience,
repetition, kid communication and more patience.
One of the many teaching methods I use is the 'Mastery
Method'. A student learns at their own pace. They move on
after they learn 100% of the subject. No rush.

For their hard, hard word, the students obtain:
Organizational skills, multi-threaded vision, over the board
creativity, time discipline, sight calculation, logic problem
solving, study habits, work ethic, competition
and contentment that they have learned something special
that few others have.

Put down the video games. Turn off the electronic
devices and power up the mind with chess!
..My teaching methods combined with insider knowledge you
won't find in books, online or inefficientchessclassrooms.
Simply look at the credentials, course description,
reviews and then compare.
Start increasing your calculation and visualization
power soon after starting the class.
Students are taught to attack the king aggressively! With
advanced gambits, hyper-engineering and
reverse engineering. All combined with warp speed multi-
threading. Their attacks are lethal. They are induced to
calculate like René Descartes. Use his thought process over
the board;

-[ Rule VIII ] --- If in the matters to be examined we come to a step in the series
of which our understanding is not sufficiently well able to have an intuitive  
cognition, we must make no attempt to examine what follows; thus we shall
spare ourselves superfluous labour. He will attend carefully to every source of
deception in order that he maybe on his guard. He will also enumerate exactly
all the ways leading to truth which lie open to us, in order that the may follow
the right way.---
René Descartes

Imagine like a Da Vinci [ block all out before committing to a
strategy, then execute the attack / ex: Last Supper
preparation].  Utilize and betterment old world
philosophies of a Capablanca, Fischer and Tal. To conserve
some of your energy by using feel.
When playing these kids, if you are lucky enough to
survive the first 15 happy!
Because odds are you won't survive the second 15.
They are becoming masters of the chess clock and starting to
see everything. They'll watch your eyes for movement and
The kids are destined not simply to be mere future

After a few lessons each subsequent lesson will start with end
game theory and examples. The student will play them back
with full understanding. Each session has practice games that
are interactively analyzed. After the basic tactics and
strategies have been learned the student learns 2 openings per
week. Example: Kings Gambit, Ruy Lopez, Sicilian Defense,
French Defense, Danish Gambit... Etcetera...
By now they are super confident and thinking fast and clear.
Now they can be taught anything even at the sub
level without much talk just by pointing the movement of
pieces. It is where deflection techniques and seeing into
opponent psychology enters. To adjust on the fly.
In the future the old Grandmaster USCF rating of 2800
will be 3200.

When the student is ready they have the opportunity to play a
multi-game match with other students at the Point. They are
more than willing to match-up//// Now they are armed with
many weapons and want to exercise their new found skills
with much confidence.
Of course someone must lose. However they are taught the
methods to extract so much learnings from a win OR a loss.
Either way they win! They are happy.

This weeks chess lesson most kids learned more advanced
checkmate patterns, 4 chess openings - The Kings Gambit,
The Ruy Lopez, The Sicilian Defense and the French
Defense. Next week the highly anticipated dangerous but
exciting attacking opening: The Danish Gambit. They also
learned the art of chess deflection [Where you induce and
seduce your opponents pieces to a certain direction only to
show the method to your madness.] --too cool. Next week the
art of chess deception... What your opponent sees on the chess
board isn't the truth!... Diabolical.��
Donate any amount so we can make
more wonderful sci-fi and chess films!!
To the left a game of mine 35 years
A win against a US Federation Chess
Expert who's was rating about to
become a U.S. Chess Master [2200].

The win illustrates the art of deception
and positional attacking methods.
The game also show effortless
movement of pieces in concert.

A short game as A.Booth thought he
had a nice position only to come to the
shocking realization that his pieces
were under developed and of no worth
against what was about to happen.
Play it, you just may like it.
