Santa Barbara CPA Tutor Luke B. is a licensed CPA in the state of California. He’s worked in public accounting for more than two years, primarily with PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), one of the “Big Four” and leading global professional service firms. He graduated summa cum laude from the University of California, Riverside and also tutored undergraduate students in accounting and other business and economic-related subjects.

Luke passed the Uniform CPA Exam in 2019 while working at PwC, juggling both a demanding work schedule and passing all four exam sections within one year and on the first attempt. He’s eager to leverage his tutoring experience and recent test knowledge to help others achieve their goals of becoming a licensed CPA.

Luke’s long-term goals differ from most CPAs. He recently left full-time public accounting to pursue a commercial/military pilot career. He currently holds an FAA Private Pilot License and trains at a local flight school. Luke maintains his CPA currency through working at a local CPA firm on a limited schedule. He also enjoys physical activities in his free time such as mountain biking and hiking.
