Is this a good website for a mature adult who picks up new topics quickly to self-teach chess?

    It's a good site to know about, but you probably won't use it regularly for your own questions until you are much farther along. For now, you should simply look over a series of past posts to get a feeling for how others use this site. Past questions can also lead you to insights that might be valuable in learning faster.

No, it's not, but it might still be very beneficial to you. (Chess) Stack Exchange is a question and answer site, so:

You should only ask practical, answerable questions based on actual problems that you face.

(taken from here).

So don't expect any tutorials here, or the possibility to play an actual game against someone. However, browsing through the site you will find a lot of resources which might help you - this question for example. If you need a resource on a specific topic, and nobody has asked it before, please go ahead and ask for it.
