 Sal Khan Biography

Sal Khan is the founder of the Khan Academy, a free online education platform and not-for profit organization. He has produced over 2,200 popular videos elucidating a wide spectrum of concepts, mainly focusing on mathematics and the sciences, in his home. As of March 2019, the Khan Academy channel on YouTube has more than 4.7 million subscribers and the Khan Academy videos have been viewed more than 1.6 billion times. In 2012, Time named Salman Khan in its annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world. Forbes magazine featured Khan on its cover, with the story "$1 Trillion Opportunity."

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 Khans concise, practical and relaxed teaching method. Khan outlined his mission as to accelerate learning for students of all ages. With this in mind, we want to share our content with whoever may find it useful. Khan also plans to extend his free school to cover topics such as English and history. Programs are being undertaken to use Khans videos to teach those in isolated areas of Africa and Asia. He delineated his motives: With so little effort on my part, I can empower an unlimited amount of people. I cant imagine a better use of my time.

Khan has been featured on the PBS NewsHour, CNN, NBC Nightly News and National Public Radio. In 2009, the Khan Academy received the Microsoft Tech Award for education. In 2010, Google provided $2 million to support the creation of more courses and to enable the Khan Academy to translate its core library into the worlds most widely spoken languages. In October 2010, Khan was tied for #34 in FORTUNEs annual 40 Under 40, a list recognizing businesss hottest rising stars. In March 2011, Khan was invited to speak at TED by Bill Gates who claims to use the Khan Academy Exercise Software to teach his own children.
