For the 2010-2011 school year, John was partnered with Tina Damasco at University Lab School located here on Oʻahu. John worked with Juniors (11th grade) and Seniors (12th grade) and helped them understand how to approach and solve math problems in alignment with the school's unique approach to teaching and curriculum. He also was the coach of the TrigStar competition in which one of my students took top honors in the entire state.

For the 2011-2012 school year, John partnered with Toni Kaui at Kamehameha Schools located in downtown Honolulu. Toni is an Education Officer that does, among other things, culturally-based curriculum development. John's responsibilities were providing mathematical expertise in finding mathematics in the Hawaiian culture and then developing problems that are culturally significant and mathematically rich. The primary focus was on developing upper division problems for high school classes, but they can be brought to lower division classrooms as well.

In 2011, John would finish the Masters program and earn his degree in Mathematics.
