Where are your chess classes conducted?
Classes can be held at the student’s home or public F&B outlets such as McDonalds/Starbucks etc. For bigger groups, we have an arrangement with DAT Chess Center to use their premises.
I have a young child. How old before he/she can start learning chess?
Our youngest student is just over five years old. Malaysia’s number one player, IM Yeoh Li Tian is reported to have learnt chess from his father at the age of three.
Any examples of your student’s successes?
We are not in the habit of talking about student’s achievements for the reason that undue pressure could be put on them to perform. Previous students who are no longer active in chess and trained under IM Jimmy Liew as kids include
- IM Wong Ji Zing rated 2410
- NM Ng Ee Vern rated 2224
