InstructorsChess4Life instructors work closely under the guidance of National Master Elliott Neff. All instructors follow the coaching methods that were developed by Elliott over the past 20 years in training students and teams to both state and national titles. In 2006 Elliott Neff opened the first Chess4Life Center in Bellevue, where Chess4Life coaches continue to develop and hone their teaching skills with guidance from Elliott. Students can now further their chess study at the new Chess4Life Redmond center.
