Chess Max Academy is a pearl in the heart of Manhattan.One never knows why you might meet there.

Many chess greats are frequently found in the small waiting area in this Big hearted school.

My 8y.o  son Liam is coached by Grandmaster Maxim Dlugy and is currently the NY State Primary Champion.

Maxim's passion for chess and pure genius  is simply refreshing.

Maxim Dlugy is a professional coach in an industry where there is very few.I would trust my son my son's  development as a player to no one else.

Russian Language classes are also taught here at Chess Max Academy..... and if you are lucky enough to meet Mrs. Inna Dlugy for a lesson she is a wonderful educator.

Chess Max Academy  is clearly superior and built with love.

 We always wanted to raise our son bilingual.I'm Russian and it is important for me that he learns the language.

I brought my son to Inna's class when he was 1.5. We have made much progress since.

He started to pick up evething she is teaching him, started to repeat even longer and more difficult-sounding words.

More importantly, Inna is exelent at keeping his interest and he always wants to come back for more.

It is greats learning environment for the little ones. Highly recommend Chess Max Academy for those who wish to learn and brush their Russian skills. 

Could not be happier with this place....Thank you guys!!!!!

My 4 years old daugher  Kimberly goes to take classes  at the Chess Max Academy for over 6 months taking both chess and logic classes.

She loves every minute of it. The owners Inna and Maxim Dlugy are very nice people who are great with kids.

I recommend this school highly  to anyone interested in developing their kids potential.
