Hi! I'm Lumin. I graduated from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo in 2014 with a Bachelor's degree in Mathematics and a double minor in Statistics and Actuarial Preparation. After graduation, I worked in a variety of Silicon Valley jobs at Google, Kaiser Permanente, and GoPro. My job experience turned me into a master of Excel and spreadsheets, as well as giving me the understanding of what skills learned in school become practical in the workplace.

Hi! I'm Lumin. I graduated from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo in 2014 with a Bachelor's degree in Mathematics and a double minor in Statistics and Actuarial Preparation. After graduation, I worked in a variety of Silicon Valley jobs at Google, Kaiser Permanente, and GoPro. My job experience turned me into a master of Excel and spreadsheets, as well as giving me the understanding of what skills learned in school become practical in the workplace. Outside of the working world, I genuinely love math and applying it to my everyday life and hobbies. I'm one of the biggest sports fans out there (especially MLB and NBA,) an internationally competitive board game player, and a travel addict.
Throughout my teaching experience, I have greatly enjoyed bringing tough concepts to light, with a preference for visual examples and explanations. While in college, one professor made me see teaching through a new lens. Every time a student gave a wrong answer, she would immediately figure out their thought process and tell them which parts they got right! After that, she would explain what derailed the student's thought process and show the correct steps to the right answer. I have since adopted this style, as the friendly explanations and corrections show that the student is usually not far from the right answer, and is therefore less intimidating to students than saying that an answer is wrong.
As a tutor, I have helped students realize a wide variety of goals. This goes back to my high school years, when I taught four classmates Algebra, Geometry, and Calculus. As a junior, I was a TA for four AP Calculus BC students taking the exam while my school was unable to offer that specific course. Three of them received 4's and 5's on their AP Exam, after I suggested a yearlong curriculum, helped with after-school discussions, and created and graded unit exams and practice AP questions to assess progress. Following my college studies, I was invited multiple times to guest lecture at UC Berkeley on two different topics in applied statisti

Knowledgeable, Patient, and Easy Going
Lumin was a LIFESAVER. I had to take an excel class that I was spending 3 hours MINIMUM on to figure out stuff. Google, Youtube, and any other resources only helped me so much. Lumin turned what I accomplished in 6 hours into 30 minutes. Highly recommend!Christian, 8 lessons with Lumin

Very Knowledgeable and patient tutor
Lumin is patient and effective in his teaching styles. A pleasure to learn from. He makes the topics much easier to understand and encourages you to figure things out. He is instrumental to my success in my recent data analytics studies.Bryan, 10 lessons with Lumin
Subject Matter Expert in all things related to data
Lumin helped me finish a project that I was working on and in less than two hours I ended up learning a months worth of Excel. We were sifting through large data sets and he explained clearly everything that he was seeing and what objectives he was setting as he was walking through it. I found him to be articulate, well organized, and patient during the time he was working with me. I cannot recommend Lumin enough for any analytics work.Joe, 2 lessons with Lumin
