"I was in a rating vacuum which veered 100 points up and down. I was recommended to Shir by a friend who went from a beginner to a strong player in a year through her brilliant coaching. Three months later, my ranking was heading upward; after eight months, it was 700 points higher online, and 300 points over the board. Shir also helped me find a club, and I now play in Leagues and tournaments."

"I started studying chess with Shir a couple of years back thinking that I need some 'gym workout' for my brain. Since then, I enjoy studying chess immensely thanks to Shir’s deep understanding of the content, her captivating way to teach and explain complicated concepts, and all that through the convenience of studying on Zoom. I highly recommend it to anyone, beginner or advanced player!"

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."

"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."

"Shir's chess classes are beyond amazing! I looked forward to each class and immensely enjoyed them. I don't know how she was so patient, but I wish I had a fraction of it! She is highly professional and genuinely inspired me. I strongly recommend her services if you and/or your family want to learn chess in a fun environment!"
