Our Mission

TurtleStrat, LLC aims to promote chess by acting as an educational resource that prepares children to succeed in this dynamic society. We strive to develop and improve students' logical reasoning and problem-solving skills, their patience and concentration to increase their intellectual abilities and help them become responsible and successful individuals.


Our Philosophy

TurtleStrat's philosophy is to understand and help children based on their unique learning needs, encourage them to explore new possibilities and make them aware of the parallels between chess and life.


Our History

Since 2005 we have been providing high-quality chess instruction for children of all ages in the states of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. Chess players trained through our organization consistently won top prizes in various chess tournaments. In 2014, the company's name was changed from Holcmann Chess to TurtleStrat to emphasize "turtle strategy"  - slow and steady wins the race - as our fundamental approach to tackle challenges and achieve success.
