We are happy to announce that Chess University Assistant Director and former Assistant Instructor Ryan Murphy is now an Instructor at Chess University who will contribute to our instructional content in an increased capacity.

Ryan is a USCF expert chess player and coach who has been teaching private lessons for several years. In 2017, Ryan appeared as a guest instructor in the Prodigy Program and taught live lessons in our first-ever graded, in-school, honors chess class which we taught online. Ryan has also analyzed hundreds of student submitted games over the past two years.

Ryan will now record game analysis videos, self-paced courses, and other instructional materials for our students. Below is Ryan's first-ever student game analysis video lesson. Be sure to leave a comment below with your feedback after you watch the video!
