Woman Fide Master Flavia
"Our 11-year-old son is in virtual group lessons and one-to-one sessions with Shir and other coaches at the academy. In two years, he has made significant progress and thoroughly enjoys learning and playing chess. Shir brings out the fun and enjoyment of playing chess, while learning life skills like winning and losing in a respectful way, along with concentration and thinking. I thoroughly recommend the London Chess Academy."

"My 11 year old son Ethan has been attending chess sessions with Shir for a couple of years. His chess has come on in leaps and bounds, and Shir has continued to stretch and challenge him throughout. He still looks forward to the classes every week and clearly has a lot of fun! I would highly recommend the club."
"Aside from her captivating smile, Shir exudes determination, brilliance, and resourcefulness with every lesson. Shir has significantly nurtured my love for chess and fuelled my passion and excellence in science and technology. By constantly challenging my curiosity, intellect, preparation, and self-belief, Shir deserves considerable credit for my achievements. She is so much more than a chess teacher - Shir is an exceptional life coach."
CEO at Nostromo Energy
"I have three children, 5, 7 and 10, who have benefited from Shir’s expertise in teaching chess, along with her passion for the game. They sit for hours with chess puzzles and their only complaint is that no lesson with Shir is long enough. What sets Shir apart is her patience and ability to bond with the students. I highly recommend her."

"Shir is super professional and extremely pleasant to work with. She has a rare combination of kindness, intelligence and endless motivation. For more than a decade she has taught my son and I chess, combining theoretical knowledge with tactics, puzzles and studies. Through her professionalism and a significant tutoring presence, she delivers wonderful courses for students at all levels of their chess journey."
CEO at Mat-Pals
"Shir created strategic ways to teach children to improve their creativity, patience and tactical thinking. She also excels in pedagogical and professional methods of teaching, and she has a strong track record in organising and managing tournaments."
Manager of Herzliya Chess Club
"My son has been enjoying Shir’s chess club for two years and going. He calls it "training my brains". He became the best player in the family, gained new skills, learned to implement strategies, analyse the chess board and solve puzzles. Shir gives each student a personal attention and challenges them to achieve their highest potential."

"I am delighted to recommend Shir and her team at the London Chess Academy. My oldest boy started three years ago and fell in love with chess, even persuading his friends to join the academy. Her passion and motivation for chess influence the children. My youngest child also joined the club. I can’t recommend Shir enough!"
