Hi there! Enjoy chess? Are you an adult looking to sharpen your chess skills? Here’s your chance!

This class is ideal for adults with a rapid rating in the 400-1200 range. Or for lichess players between 600-1350. Players outside this range may want to contact us to inquire about our other options available.

Chess Coach Ryan Ackerman has ample experience working with adults as he conducts monthly lessons for the official one-and-only Amazon HQ Chess Club. You can preview his coaching style on his YouTube video. In the featured video Ryan reviews a masterful game played in 1981 by the infamous and former world champion Mikhail Tal.

In addition to covering master games, the classes and activities also include:

  • Playing a team game against bots while having discussion with attendees about plans, ideas and moves to consider at any given moment. During games Ryan discusses opening principles, endgame conversion strategies and everything in between.
  • Reviewing Coach Ryan’s recent long time-control tournament chess games, and his reflections and learnings and journey towards his goal of reaching the highly coveted NM (National Master) rating.
  • Students playing against other students with chess timers (via Time control for games will be anything from 30-minute down to 5-minute depending on the preference of players.
