Christian Larsen

My Bio

Christian Larsen began teaching High School Mathematics in the Fall of 2022. He joins STEM School as an industry expert rather than through a traditional education path. Christian received a Graduate Degree in Applied Mathematics from DePaul University and worked as a Consulting Actuary for 10 years. He rapidly passed the rigorous exam requirements, earning an esteemed Fellowship in the Society of Actuaries (FSA). But that was only a fraction of Christian’s background. Here are some of his other accomplishments and experiences:

  • Earned THREE degrees in music
  • Has written several albums on iTunes and licenses his music for movies and advertisements worldwide
  • Wrote an innovative iPad app that taught 2-year-olds how to read music (true!) and remained in Apple’s Top 10 for many months
  • Later, owned a mobile app development agency for 10 years, designing apps for clients.
  • And even while teaching math during the day, Christian teaches private piano lessons in the evening!

Finally, a fun fact: Christian was once a Segway tour guide when he lived in Chicago!
