Form: Shane Fernandes, COO, KidzToPros
To whom it may concern:
We hired Flyn as an after-school chess coach in 2018.
At the end of the 2018/19 school year due to his stellar performance and constant inquires to do more for KidzToPros we engaged him to create and extensive formal program for the 2019 school year.
Flyn created a complete set of 30 lesson plans for the coaches to use in their sessions. He provided detail that allows nearly anyone who has a competent understanding of the game to provide a great lesson for the kids.
Additionally, he created a complete instructor training program to ensure all our instructors can teach at the highest level. This two-hour set of videos gives the coaches a variety of techniques and methods Flyn has developed for being successful with the kids. It covers every aspect of running the class, teaching chess and communicating with the kids.
I can tell you from personal observation of his coaching of one of our employee’s kids, that he is simply phenomenal with kids. He’s engaging and teaches in a self-discovery mode helping that allows his students to discover the right ideas and answers as they go.
I would highly recommend him to any parent or school that desired chess instruction for their child or program.
