Our Students And Coaches Love Chessable Classroom


Woman Grandmaster

“The FIDE Chessable Academy is an excellent opportunity for kids from all over the world to take classes with GM’s and learn new things/improve our game. My experience with virtual classes is very good and rewarding, I love that they are interactive.

On the other hand, Chessable is a very good platform to study, improve your game, be consistent and see results in due time. It is an honor to be a part of this.”

GM Mikhail Kobalia

Chairman of the FIDE Trainers Commission

“In my time, we could not even dream of seeing such strong trainers online and learning from them. We want you to learn a lot from different people.”

GM Thomas Luther


“As a lecturer I can give the kids the floor, they can take the voice, they can talk, they can explain to other kids, they can show something on the board.”
