    Hi there; Will this support BOTH tutor and student being able to move pieces? I am desperately Looking for a system where each side can make a move, on either side of the board. Example: coach can move a student’s piece, and the student can move a coach’s piece. Both see the board in real time, as the pieces move.
    I hope I am making sense.
