To mitigate the problem that a student could not persist in working on tactic problems at home everyday, I am offering a weekly video course. I am using the book "5334 Chess Problems, Combinations, and Games" to complement the Steps Method series I am using in classes right now.
Please check out the blog site for demo videos:
Q: Is this a real-time class in classroom?
A: No, it's not. It's a video course. Every week I record one video based on students' questions, and publish it on the course website.
Q: Is the book 5334 provided?
A: No, you have to buy it by yourself.
Q: How can I ask questions?
A: Every week, I will publish the suggested schedule on the above blog site. You can add comments to the blog with Page number and Question number.
Q: Do we have to follow the suggested schedule? Can we move faster or slower?
A: No, the schedule is only suggested. You can move at your own pace.
Q: Can we ask questions outside the suggested pages?
A: Yes, you can ask questions on any page in the 5334 book.
