What Makes Chess Mentor Unique

While other chess programs give you problems and answers, Chess Mentor allows you to understand the tactical and strategic themes and positions more deeply as you access different levels of hints before you see the solution. And, more important than seeing the right answer, see why you may have chosen the wrong answer. Chess Mentor gives you feedback on every possible move on the chess board!

Chess Mentor content is written by chess professionals and chess teachers such as IM Jeremy Silman, IM John Grefe, IM Eric Tangborn, IM Marc Leski, FM Thomas Wolski, FM Mike Arne, and FM Craig Mar.

When you study with Chess Mentor's unique responsive learning engine it is just like studying with a real chess coach. The lessons are customized for your needs and your progress is tracked to show you how you are improving. Studying with Chess Mentor is much more effective than studying with just chess books or other chess software!
