Improve your cognitive skills while receiving expert help from chess experts

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. Brainfuse has added a new area of service that offers live chess tutoring within its HelpNow program.

For over twenty years, Brainfuse has provided supplemental educational services including online homework help, practice tests, study tools, and collaborative tools. Brainfuse chess tutors have certifiable qualifications such as high Elo ratings (2000+), chess coaching experience, and current or previous titles (e.g. expert/candidate master). If you are looking to improve your skills, check your local public library to see if Brainfuse HelpNow is offered. Via participating institutions, all Brainfuse HelpNow services are provided free to the public with their library card.

“Brainfuse is committed to promoting learning in its many forms,” said Francesco Lecciso, one of Brainfuse’s co-founders. “Chess has been long regarded as not only an enjoyable activity but one that improves analytic and strategic thinking. Our tutors look forward to helping people deepen their understanding and appreciation of this ancient game.”
