Brainfuse Wants to Teach People The Queen's Gambit

Brainfuse, an online tutoring provider in public libraries, is now offering live chess tutoring as part of its HelpNow program. “The Queen’s Gambit, castling, and countergambit are just a few of the maneuvers in chess. The game is not only a popular pastime, but scientific studies have shown that chess players have more cognitive skills.”

The chess tutors all “have certifiable qualifications such as high Elo ratings (2000+), chess coaching experience, and current or previous titles (e.g. expert/candidate master). … Via participating institutions, all Brainfuse HelpNow services are provided free to the public with their library card.”

For more information, read the blog post.
