Advanced GO! March 2019

Yue Zhang offers a series of classes to accelerate the learning of players 9 kyu through 6 dan.

Classes will meet Thursday evenings, 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM, at the Go Center. This is planned to be an ongoing series. (March 7, Mr. Tajiri 5-dan professional lectures instead.)

Yue’s novel instruction includes whole-class lectures, group games, and AI-assisted game reviews. Compared to traditional teaching which emphasize whole-class lectures, the Advanced Go Class series will focus more on individualized instruction, which will be offered during the games and game reviews.

7 players wait at their Go boards as 1 player walks from board to board.

Yue’s individualized form of teaching is suitable for players rated from 9 kyu up to 6 dan. These sessions are designed to help you climb your learning curve more rapidly.

Tuition:

Yue (Vincent) Zhang
  • $25 per two-hours session (includes Go Center admission); or
  • $20 per session for Youth (17 and younger), Quarterly, Yearly, and Lifetime members.
  • Partial scholarships ($15 per session) are available! We don’t want cost to be an obstacle for any player willing to dig deep to improve. Talk to Mike (the programs manager) for details.

Because of the way the class is structured, it works best with at least four students signed up. Please complete the registration form below to choose your dates and sign up. Sessions that don’t have at least four players registered by Monday evening will be canceled — so, bring a friend!
