"I can't say enough wonderful things about Lior. He is an amazing coach and fantastic influence for my son. Lior makes chess fun; his humor and friendliness help kids to feel at ease even when he teaches difficult concepts. His brilliance and caring personality provide an exciting and safe atmosphere for children to learn and grow. I deeply appreciate his creative lessons sharing his immense passion and knowledge of the game, history, and all things "chess." If there is a "Chess Coach of the Year" award, I'd certainly vote Coach Lior!!"
