 Christy Lum-Naihe, Lead Instructor 

Christy received a Bachelors in Mathematics from the University of Missouri-Columbia and has tutored children & adults of all ages in math subjects ranging from elementary-level up to multi-variable Calculus & Abstract Algebra. When Christy is not showing kids how awesome math is, she is showing kids how groovy soccer is by coaching youth soccer throughout the valley. Christy says, "the best thing about working with kids is that while I am instructing them through some concept, whether it's soccer, math, or character development, I have an opportunity to learn from them. Their views are hilarious, almost always logically sound, and interacting with them keeps me young!"
