with the
  w
command you get a list of all active (login) session, for you the USER and TTY column is of interest.
Then is ps (ax  or  -ef, depending on your OS) and grep for that user using this tty. Finally use
  kill -9 <pid of shell of idetified user>

Or make
1.ps -ef|grep John
Example:
John 10900 10899  0 10:27:07 pts/15   0:00 rlogin pluto
2. fuser -k /dev/pts/15
and kill all process from John
on the terminal 15
