To enter Beginner-2 class, students are expected to know the names and movements of all the pieces as well as their position on the chessboard. They should have an understanding of chess language and chess notation and should be able to complete two move checkmate puzzles. The beginner level covers the end game (basic checkmates, pawn promotion, drawing positions etc.), openings and middle games, and basic strategies (forks, pins, skewers, deflections and sacrifice. After explanation and demonstration, additional problems (within the same topic), and later games from actual tournaments, are analyzed. Each lesson is concluded by a game. Students' progress is tracked by recording their results. Handouts with the lesson outline are given when each new topic is introduced. Homework typically includes several problems. Links to relevant Internet sites will be offered.

To enter Intermediate class, students are expected to be familiar with concepts covered at the Beginner class. They should have knowledge of popular chess openings, strategies and tactics as well as fluency in solving up to three move chess puzzles. Students should also be familiar with frequent endgames such as king and pawn endings, king and queen endings and king and rook endings. Students who show aptitude and make a good progress are recommended to join USCF so they could participate in rated tournaments.
