Learn with Sharon
Neurodiversity can present unique challenges when it comes to learning and succeeding in life.
Some people with neurodiversity feel like they’re not smart or capable because of the way their brain works.
Chess is a great tool for neurodiversity because it’s a game that can be learnt with practice and patience. Chess helps to improve problem solving skills, focus, and concentration.
Students who process language differently or require things to be repeated or rephrased, can still reap the benefits of chess. Sharon is an incredibly patient instructor who has vast experience working with a variety of students with ADHA, dyslexia, anxiety, perfectionism, for example and welcomes the opportunity to work with you.
If you are interested in learning more about bringing chess to your neurodiversity audience, please contact Sharon to discuss your needs.
What Others Are Saying
Our four-year-old looks forward to each week’s lesson with Sharon. The time flies by, and his understanding of chess and his joy in playing grows each time they are together.
Sharon, you are WONDERFUL. To witness our teenager doing so well in something extracurricular is wonderful for us!!! He is a tough customer, and to have been able to hone in on something (other than video games), to exercise his mind, etc., is key. I know he looks forward to his time with you, and I believe your great energy is a big part of it. Thank you for always letting us know how he is doing! Music to our ears.
We had such a great class on Sunday. I took so much away from it and am applying to my games!
Thanks so much! We really appreciate it! Our three-year-old is enjoying chess and we are really excited about her progress! Thanks for your amazing teaching!
Our six-year-old was so excited to tell me all about chess class and the drills he did! He absolutely loved it and was sad he needs to wait another week to play with friends again.
