About Luan


Bio

My name is Luan. I earned my Bachelor of Science in June 2017 at California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo and my Master of Science at San Jose State University in May 2019, both in applied mathematics.

I am currently working in the federal government as an actuary. For my teaching experiences, I was a former employee for the Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth, where I taught the Mathematics of Money class and supervised students from all different backgrounds and ages....

My name is Luan. I earned my Bachelor of Science in June 2017 at California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo and my Master of Science at San Jose State University in May 2019, both in applied mathematics.

I am currently working in the federal government as an actuary. For my teaching experiences, I was a former employee for the Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth, where I taught the Mathematics of Money class and supervised students from all different backgrounds and ages. With different innovative activities such as market simulations, discussions about different monetary policies, and debates on the trade war, the students engaged much more in learning the mathematical concepts of finance, thus maximized their learning capacities. In the past two years, I was also a lecturer for College Algebra and Precalculus and worked as a coordinator for the Calculus workshops at SJSU. By utilizing Mathematica and Python for computations and data visualizations, along with Skype and Moodle for extra office hours, my students can see the real impact of math and technology in practices. Working as a teaching associate also helped me to realize my passion for teaching computational mathematics and statistics.

Along with teaching, I have combined my experiences in coding to create Cyber Spartans. It is a program where SJSU collaborated with Campbell Union School District and Cisco Systems to teach cybersecurity and computer sciences to the underrepresented youth. We successfully piloted this program for the first time in spring 2019 and presented its outcome in computer programming efficacy at the conferences. The reputation of the program has grown after we were featured in both SJSU and Campbell Unify newsroom and nominated for the Contribution to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Award.
