About John K


Bio

I have been teaching mathematics since 2001, and this is my third career. I grew up as a military brat (my father is a retired Air Force Master Sergeant and I lived in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia for my 8th-10th grades). I went to a small college in Louisiana (Southeastern Louisiana University) and majored in mathematics. In 1981, I entered active duty as a 2LT in the Army Corps of Engineers. I retired as a Major in 1996. I gained a lot of experience in the Army as a project engineer,...

I have been teaching mathematics since 2001, and this is my third career. I grew up as a military brat (my father is a retired Air Force Master Sergeant and I lived in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia for my 8th-10th grades). I went to a small college in Louisiana (Southeastern Louisiana University) and majored in mathematics. In 1981, I entered active duty as a 2LT in the Army Corps of Engineers. I retired as a Major in 1996. I gained a lot of experience in the Army as a project engineer, construction planning, maps, topography, computers, etc. Mathematics was a vital role in my day to day jobs. Prior to entering the Army, I worked as a manager of a Sonic Drive Inn Restaurant while going to college (Math was really important). After I retired from the Army, I spent 4 years working as a project manager with some local area companies such as DSC Communications, Alcatel, Wireless Facilities, Inc., IVPCARE, InterVoice and SBC/Cingular Wireless.

In July 2001, my mother-in-law was dying of cancer. I was tired of working 50-70 hour weeks in Corporate America and missed the days of waking up in the morning and making a difference in this world. On July 3, 2001, I resigned from my project manager position with only a dream of teaching math. I remember a co-worker asking me what I was going to do, and I replied that I had always wanted to teach math in school and maybe teach a college course in computers. Believe it or not, within 30 days, I was hired to do both.

I have taught at 5 different schools since 2001 and taught mathematics from 4th to 12th grade including pre-calculus, math models with applications, Algebra II, geometry, algebra, pre-algebra, middle school math, Saxon Math, and 4th-8th grade math. I also taught a 3-semester hour Computer Essentials Course at Collin College for 4 years from 2001-2005 as an Adjunct Associate College Professor.

From 2003 to 2013, I also taught 10 different Middle School Math with Brain Teasers at Greenhill School's Summer on the Hill Program. In 2002, I proposed a Mid

All reviews great tutor patient

Patient and relaxed atmosphere for our son.

JohnK works well with our son. He is patient and works with him in a way that he questions our son to discover the answer when he is stumped or having difficulty as opposed to JohnK just giving him the answer or telling him how to get the answer so they can move on to the next problem. He has been a great tutor in getting our son up to speed and keeping his mind mathematically active over the summer. Thanks JohnK.
