I have been working in the field of education since 1986. During this time, I have worked as a K-8 elementary/middle school teacher (covering all subjects Language Arts, Math, History, Science, etc.), K-12 Spanish teacher, college-level Spanish and teacher education professor, K-8 principal and high school assistant principal in both public and private schools. I have also served as a student teaching supervisor for some local colleges and done private tutoring in the areas of Spanish, English, Reading, Writing, Elementary grade subjects, and computer/technology for a variety of companies and individuals, as well as having worked with ESL and ENL students, teaching and working with them on their English speaking, reading and writing skills.
I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree from Ball State University in Spanish and Education, a Master of Science degree in Education Administration and Spanish, and I have completed additional graduate work in secondary and elementary language arts/math, computer/technology education, Spanish and English. I am licensed to teach in 5 states, including Indiana. I work full-time during the school year as the department chair and lead Spanish teacher and as the world literature teacher at a high school in Indiana, and I work part-time in the evenings teaching at several major universities. I have traveled to Spain, Africa, Mexico and Portugal.
I am married and my wife is an English teacher/professor and a published author. We have three children; our oldest son, who is a special needs person, currently lives in a group home, our daughter is a recent college graduate and now works as an elementary school teacher, and our youngest son is a junior in college, double majoring in music performance and music education.
Jeff gets the Golden Apple
The Golden Apple is given to the teacher of the year in college. Jeff K is an excellent teacher who has made studying the Spanish language exciting and rewarding. He individualized my lessons, instructing me in areas in which I was deficient. .Prior to working with Jeff I could make simple sentences using the present and preterit tenses . Now my sentences are complex and I find that I can read and write in Spanish, and when I hear a broadcast in Spanish I understand most of what I hear . In June I was barely an intermediate student. Three months later I am an advanced intermediate. Although I studied hard, I believe it was his guidance, encouragement, and instruction that accounts for my progress. If I were not leaving the area for Florida, I would continue with his tutelage. I plan to continue studying Spanish in the south ,but it will be difficult to find a teacher in Florida anywhere near as good as Jeff.Bonnie, 9 lessons with Jeff
Business tech refresher course.
Amazing tutor for my Google Drive tech needs / refresher course. Jeff is a great educator. Patient and knowledgeable. On-time and very professional. Patient while I learned, but also fast-forward when I was understating the program; Jeff kept pace.Cristina, 1 lesson with Jeff
I learned a lot within the first lesson. I feel like I’ll be able to improve my Spanish speaking ability immensely.Gina , 3 lessons with Jeff
helpful and knowledgeable
Jeff helped me get comfortable with my new lap top. Taught me some specific procedures I needed to know and helped me out with an online project I'd been avoiding. I will happily call on Jeff again as needed.Marge, 1 lesson with Jeff
My kid received a C in Spanish 1 last year and was moved to Spanish 2 this school year. Funny thing is, he admitted to knowing NOTHING from the previous class, so I decided to have him go back and take The class over this year. Over the last couple of weeks, my kid has passed every single quiz with an A or B thanks to Mr. Jeff. We will continue to have him tutored throughout the year and even for summer. He has gained so much confidence.Sandra, 4 lessons with Jeff
Señor K is a great Spanish teacher!
I needed an accelerated ramp up to Spanish before heading to Central America. Jeff delivered the goods. He provided a structured approach and all the resources I needed to study with him and at home. He set clear expectations for what I should do - don't underestimate the importance of that! He gently but firmly made me engage - open my mouth and just do it! That is so critical. He was flexible in his scheduling. And he was enjoyable to be with. I highly recommend Jeff - and thank him a lot. ¡Adios, I'm off! Now it's your turn!Rob, 6 lessons with Jeff
Learning with Jeff
Jeff tutors our 7th-grade daughter on a weekly basis. And even though he has only been doing it for a few weeks, we are already seeing great improvement in both our daughter's overall grades and attitude towards learning! Keep changing the world, Jeff...One mind at a time!!!Mwayi, 5 lessons with Jeff
I met with Jeff last week. He is good and he did what was needed. I asked him a lot of questions after my lesson that he answered via text. He is very concerned with whether or not I understand, like "Do have any questions," "if you have any questions send me an email or call." In my opinion Jeff is good a teacher and good man. Thank you.Abdulrahman, 1 lesson with Jeff
