Ms. Church has had the good fortune of teaching chess to students in the Monmouth County area schools for over 20 years now. Nicole has taught all the way from Harlem, NYC to Honolulu Hawaii. One of her Harlem classes was featured in Parent magazine named “ The Brainy Benefits of Chess

Nicole is a semi-retired tournament chess player. She has played tournaments in NJ, Las Vegas, and as far as Amsterdam. She has received years of coaching by an international master. Every summer she runs a chess camp at the Kateri Environmental Center.


Ms. Church is extremely excited to be at the Peach Pit and believes chess can help any child develop strong lasting critical thinking skills and friendships!  Our goal together is to give your child a lifelong love of this beautiful game.
