Hello there! My name is CM Jonathan FIDE ID 3100650. I am the current blitz and classic chess champion of Puerto Rico (2018-2019). I have been a chess instructor for more than 15 years with students of all levels and backgrounds. As a high level player I have represented Puerto Rico as part of the National Team in the Chess Olympiad twice (2016 and 2018), World Youth Championship (2004), World Open (2006, 2007 and 2016) , Sub-zonal Jamaica 2018 and many others. My current FIDE rating is 2180.
Most of my students are between the ages of 6 and 12 but I have experience with students of all ages. I am also fluent in both Spanish and English. Although my students and I have a lot of fun learning, for me quality is of paramount importance to the process. Teaching chess is truly my passion and i enjoy every second of it. All students can expect to see a substantial improvement in their understanding of the game as well as their rating.
