Ken and Joni Whitaker are the owners of MathTree. They have both worked with children for decades!
Joni majored in math at UNC-Charlotte and began her teaching career upon graduation. She has years of teaching math in public and private schools, on-line, and she homeschooled her children through middle school. Currently she teaches high school math for Fairfax County Public Schools in VA. She began teaching for MathTree in 2009 and then moved into the role of Educational Advisor. During the summer months you’ll see her on-site assisting in the classrooms and training instructors. Contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions about the curriculum and your child’s placement in a MathTree camp.
Ken majored in Industrial Relations and played tennis at UNC at Chapel Hill, then he embarked upon a career as a USPTA Tennis Teaching Professional. After being on the court for over thirty years, he became the Director of Children’s Programs and a Facility Manager in Chantilly, VA. Now, in the summer months, you’ll find Ken setting up and taking down camp at each of our locations. Off-season, he’s the one who answers the phones and helps parents with the registration process. You can reach Ken at email@example.com.
Together the Whitaker Team is passionate about coming alongside parents and schools to help children gain skills in math, as they become confident learners who experience the beauty of math!
