TWO IN ONE


By Nibaldo Calvo Buides

After 30 minutes of learning some activity, the kids can get bored easily.  That’s the reason why some lessons, like piano, for example, long 20 or 30 minutes.
I created the course “Two in one”, which allows the students to receive two lessons in one hour, divided 30 minutes per each lesson: Spanish and Chess.
Chess is extremely helpful in brain development, particularly when it is played regularly from a very early age.
Spanish as a second language in the United State of America give to the kids a chance at greater fluency and access to countless professional opportunities later on.
Cost per hour: $30.00
