Jon Santos graduated from the University of Houston – Downtown with a B.A. in Urban Education in 2013. His professional Chess career enabled him to travel and teach across the United States, begin several after-school programs across Houston, and help many students to become Chess Champions! Jon then took his love for teaching to help educate both public and homeschooling students wherever they are.
He strongly believes that children have unique gifts that help build the Kingdom of God and challenges them to develop those gifts. Jon teaches online and in his local area in a variety of subjects including language arts, math, science, and social studies. Jon has also taught or led specific, unique courses such as Student Government, Christian Teen Leadership, Minecraft Education, Early Lego Robotics, PC Lab, Video Game Programming, and Chess for all ages.
Jon lives in Houston with his wife and his young daughter. When he is not teaching, you can find him teaching Sunday School, fishing, camping, programming video games, reading, BBQ grilling, watching baseball, and planning his next move.
