About Your Coach

Jon has been a tournament and club player for many years.  Currently a Class B player working towards his goal of making it to Master level.  Jon loves to teach and has been doing so for 16 years.  From tutoring in college to teaching his daughter chess and other board games, Jon shows patience and loves to watch his students grow and improve.

About Your Lesson

Every student will receive a personalized lesson plan.  Jon will first talk to you about your goals in chess.  He will discuss with you what you believe are your current strengths and weaknesses.  In the first few lessons he will make an assessment of you as a player and find the areas in which need the most focus.  He will then create a coaching program around that and over time you will work together and continuously adjust the plan as you improve as a player.

The Ideal Student

Jon is a class B chess player and as such the best students would be beginners through intermediate players under 1400 USCF rating.  Jon offers local in person lessons (in Springboro, OH) or online lessons via Zoom, Skype, or other video chat programs.  Jon is currently accepting students of any age.
