Every year we plan to conduct multiple high intensity cohort based courses, each being 4-6 weeks in duration. These are designed and executed by the leading chess coaches, supported by highly qualified teaching assistants. Subscribers are expected to spend 8-12 hours per week on homework and would receive a certificate of completion on successful coursework.
Our focus is on maximising our impact and sphere of influence of our mentors. That said, we do work with a select few students and mentors as this allows us to keep our ears to the ground and experiment with pedagogical tools before we make them available for wider use. Get in touch for details.

The vision is to expand our impact by making more of our content available to people who do not communicate in english. As this feature is still in early stages, there are bound to be glitches. Kindly write to us so that we can fix the issue.
We have recently launched our multilingual website, this feature is still in beta. Currently the Dream Room is being subtitled in English, Spanish, French, German, Tamil and Hindi. This is very much a work in progress.
We hope to include more products and add more languages in future.
You should trust us because we are not trying to push the issues under the carpet. While many reviews are true, there are quite a few which are misleading - we believe that given proper context, the inference would be very different. It's also true that not many people go back to talk about issues which get "fixed".
The pandemic has been very difficult for us, on both professional and personal fronts. These difficulties resulted in multiple issue like delayed payments and loss of service quality that we had come to expect from ourselves. Our core team has worked these last couple of years under severe challenges, driven only by our desire to make things right. Today, we are at the end of a (very) long dark tunnel. We have fixed many issues and striving to fix the rest. We hope we would have your support!
