A Fun, Rewarding Job Teaching Chess to Children

Kid Chess has been teaching chess to Atlanta area school-age children since 1998. We are one of the largest chess instruction companies in the country, and we are looking for job candidates to help us teach school children this great game.

Chess Zone, our new brick-and-mortar chess club in Roswell, allows us to offer chess events and programs to folks of all ages and abilities. For interested and qualified applicants Chess Zone provides opportunities for additional work hours.

Starting Pay is $20 an hour. (Possibly more for very well qualified candidates) Coaches are in charge of supervising our fun, exciting environment at nearby elementary schools. Our mission is to provide each student with the opportunity to improve at chess while having fun and making friends – and also to provide a wonderful long-term work environment for our team members.

To ensure the safety of our employees and our customers, all staff is fully vaccinated against the Covid-19 virus and has also received the booster dose of the vaccine.

If you have a passion for teaching children to thrive or the game of chess, we would love to talk to you!
