Volunteer Teacher Wanted

Updated November 14, 2015 - Are you looking for a chance to make a difference in students lives? Or to just do some good while sharing your enjoyment of chess?

Freedom Chess Academy is looking for a volunteer, part-time chess instructor to assist in teaching beginning players once or twice a week.

Requirements: Teaching experience and/or chess experience. If you are a teacher with no chess experience,  we will provide chess training -- most of it in the form of a fun, self-study Internet-based program you can do in your spare time.

This is a perfect opportunity for a retired educator with an interest in learning chess.
