The schedule doesn't work for me? No problem!

I live too far from Culver City and cannot make in-person classes? No problem!

My child spends too much time on the screen, and I just want face-to-face chess for them.  No problem!

I cannot commit that much time to chess; I just want to come and learn when I am available.  No problem!
