This is a page where I will give UN-solicited e-mails that I have received about my "Beginner's Chess Course."  (See my  "Training Page"  for the link.)  This is a course that I specifically designed for the Internet and my web pages. It took over six months of work and thought.  It's nice to be appreciated! 

  These are emails I receive that state my course helped someone out there  ...  to learn chess.   

One of my students had a similar page, (you could register there after having taken my course); ... but that web site has been closed. At one time, he had hundreds and hundreds of names on his list. (This is NOT the kind of web page I am interested in building myself, it sounds way too tedious to be really enjoyable!)

Subject:  learning chess! 
From: "Bethany M. Smith"  <


Hi! Thanks for your beginners course!!! 

I found it to be an excellent way to learn chess, (for the very first time). It is very thorough, but not too much - at the same time. It explains everything in an easy to understand, step-by-step method. 

Good job! I knew nothing about chess, my dad tried to teach me with a learner's set, but it never clicked. But the other day my boyfriend challenged me, saying he had never seen a girl finish a game of chess ... and that girls couldn't play chess! So I was on a mission, I was gonna learn how to play.  


I did a search, {a search of the Internet}; and I found your site. I read the whole course in one day. I'll be practicing and checking out {the} other resources ... and one day I'm going to beat him so bad he won't know what hit him! Thanks!

Since first receiving this, I have gotten dozens of e-mails from people who have read my "Beginner's Chess Course." (I estimate that close to 1000 people have written me and thanked me for this work.) December 30th, 2005.
