International Chess School
Professional Chess Course
Full, Unlimited Coach Support
Grandmaster Package™ is a professional, structured 13-month chess course with full coach support. Indeed, your questions will be answered by a professional chess coach – at no extra cost.
This is like studying a series of books following a structured training program, while having a professional chess coach right there in front of you.
The Chess Course Program
The course follows a complete, structured program for a total of thirteen months. Download the course program.
The chess course is designed for approximately 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
This is a large course and comes with a wide variety of materials that increase in complexity as you work your way through it. 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
The written lessons are presented in PDF format and you can use a real chess board to study. Studying and practicing on a real chess board 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."
We offer incredible professional coaching support for our lessons!
Subscribing to the Grandmaster Package, you'll have unlimited support from the chess coaches.
"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 of the lessons or positions. That’s great! As a student of our school, you'll get detailed answers and analyses from a professional chess coach. This will save you around $40/hour; the average cost of a personal chess tutor.
