Who is Sal Khan and
is your child one of his 4,000,000 students?
Sal Khan is the founder of the Khan Academy, a free online education platform and not-for-profit organization. He has produced over 3,000 popular videos elucidating a wide spectrum of concepts, mainly focusing on mathematics and the sciences, in his home. His official channel, Khan Academy has attracted more than 80 million views.
Khan was born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana, to immigrant parents from Barisal, Bangladesh and Calcutta, India. Khan was valedictorian of his high school class and attained a perfect score in the math portion of his SATs. Khan holds three degrees from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology: a BS in mathematics, a BS in electrical engineering and computer science and an MS in electrical engineering and computer science. He also holds an MBA from Harvard Business School.
In late 2004, Khan began tutoring his cousin, Nadia, in mathematics over the Internet using Yahoo!'s Doodle notepad. When other relatives and friends sought his tutelage, he decided it would be more practical and beneficial to distribute the tutorials on YouTube where he created an account on November 16, 2006. Their popularity on the video-sharing website and the testimonials of appreciative students prompted Khan to quit his job as a hedge fund manager in late 2009 to focus on developing his YouTube channel, Khan Academy, full-time.
His videos proved popular, attracting on average more than 20,000 hits each. Students from around the world have been attracted to Khan's concise, practical and relaxed teaching method.
