Our founder: National Master Sandeep Sethuraman is all about giving the gift of chess to underprivileged families and children all around the world. We host free group lessons every Tuesday from 5-6PM PST on twitch.tv/thechesseffect and offer private lessons for 15$ an hour. Most normal lessons on this website are taught by Sandeep while some lessons have a special guest speaker. And of course we are a nonprofit which means that all of our proceeds are donated to Arizona Helping Hands (https://azhelpinghands.org/give/).
