I have been A competitive chess player for about15 years and have a peak USCF rating of over 2000, which is considered an EXPERT ( top 98% of the country) level chess player. I also have a peak Blitz rating of 2024 on Chess.com and currently have a standard rating of 2002 (top 99.8% of players in the world) on Chess.com. I have also had many of my games published including a featured article in Chess Life Magazine in December of 2013 for "Game of the Month".

I live and compete in NYC and have had the advantage of playing with many well known chess Grandmasters/International Masters at the famous Marshall Chess Club. I have defeated many chess masters in tournaments and I believe I can teach anyone how to become a very strong chess player. I have a very down to earth approach to the learning experience and I understand how intimidating chess can be. My ultimate goal is to give my students the tools they need to become a strong chess player in the quickest, most efficient way possible.

Great approach with a 10yr-old.

Jonathan has had 3 classes so far with my 10-year-old son, who now cannot wait for his weekly sessions. He enjoys both the learning itself and Jonathan's approach and personality. He has already made a huge noticeable progress .

Knowledgeable and down to earth teacher

I just started taking lessons with Jonathan and I am really enjoying them. He is very knowledgeable about chess and explains things in a way that is easily understandable. Also, he doesn't try to rush through lessons. The lessons are an excellent value considering the rates of other teachers I have seen on this app. 5 stars.

Great teacher, very understanding!

I have been playing for a little while and this is my 4th session with Jonathan. I’ve had a blast learning and he makes it very simple and gives you the tools you need.

Very understanding

Had a great first session with Jonathan. We played a couple games and then thoroughly analyzed them and talked about further meetings and how I can improve.
