Friday Intermediate Classes (Video Conference)
A weekly online class via Zoom on Fridays by IM Georgi Orlov.
This class is designed for Intermediate level players and is very helpful for tournament players. Is this class for you? See how to choose classes.
We teach powerful chess tools to get ahead in the game:
- Strategy lessons and cool openings
Below is the meeting invitation for Friday’s remote chess lessons. To join the meeting, click on the link below following the “Join Zoom Meeting”. You can connect by laptop, tablet, or smartphone. Please use a webcam setup so I can see the students. You’ll probably want to arrive a few minutes early and test your microphone and camera.
Kindly remind students to hold questions and comments during my lesson until I open the floor for discussion. Allow one student to finish their thoughts before jumping in. This will reduce interruptions and maintain the integrity of the chess session.
It is good practice to mute your microphone until you talk to reduce background noise. Press the space bar to talk and release to re-mute when your conversation is finished. Think of it as a “push to talk” button.
Parents, we appreciate your help getting your student successfully connected with this technology in our online lessons. We request that no extras (relatives, observers, or remote computers) participate in the session.
New Students: If you are a new student joining our Zoom class, please do two things in advance. First, email Coach Orlov and request the Zoom meeting password. Second, we use Chess.com with our Intermediate classes so please set up your free Chess.com account and then search for and join our Orlov Chess Academy club. This also allows you to practice your chess and play games as much as you like! Plus, you can participate in friendly online Orlov club tournaments. For full unlimited access to the whole site with all of its bells and whistles, consider upgrading your membership.
Thanks, Coach Orlov
