Our Story

Big Brainers® originally started out as ChessMate, a non-profit initiative in which Akshat gave private chess lessons starting April 2020 with a mission of developing interest in and improving the chess skills of interested students. With an overwhelmingly positive response for chess lessons, Akshat, Aditya, and Sanika came together and streamlined all their efforts into one non-profit initiative: Big Brainers. Big Brainers continued to offer the high in demand chess lessons from ChessMate, in addition to math and science lessons, starting early June 2020. Since then, Big Brainers has grown its volunteer team as well as its lesson subject offerings significantly and still continues to do so today. Big Brainers has always stood by and will always stand by the concept of affordable, high-quality lessons, for students, proudly by students.
