Josef graduated from high school with a 3.9 GPA and enough credits from Advanced Placement (AP) exams to skip an entire year of college. This allowed him to complete a five-year combined BA/MA program in Economics at Boston University. He also completed a comprehensive minor in Sustainable Energy and was a part of the Kilachand Honors College. He graduated Magna Cum Laude and with honors in the Economics major for the completion of his thesis, which analyzed the economic impact of rising sea surface temperatures on small island developing states.

In high school, Josef led the development of mentoring curricula for 7th grade students and oversaw training and leadership development for mentors. In college, he used his experience to work one-on-one with students who were on academic probation to develop an academic plan and the relevant skills necessary to improve their performance. He also provided one-on-one sessions to over 100 different students in undergraduate economics courses offered at Boston University. He worked with these students across many sessions, helping them to develop a plan for the semester.

During his spare time, Josef loves to work out at the gym, go to concerts, and read a good book on the Charles River Esplanade.

    "I would love to thank Josef for the great support he has given me during my academic career. Josef is a very caring, intelligent, and street-smart tutor. He has been very supportive especially during my very toughest subjects in my Economics Undergrad career. I would recommend him to anyone who wants to learn more about Economics and those who need help in the subject. I believe that Josef will have a very successful career as a tutor and believe he understands the needs of a college student. He has also gone above and beyond the call of duty several times to help me really ground myself in Economics. In addition, he has strong character due to his being empathetic towards students. I hope this testimonial serves well as a testament that Josef as well as Cambridge Coaching are highly recommended."

    "Josef was friendly and good at explaining economics concepts. I was going through Harvard Business School's Economics Module and needed a tutor (with short notice) to clear my doubts and gain momentum. He was good at both of those things and helped me prepare adequately to get ready for the test."

    "Josef always reached out ahead of sessions to see if I had any materials to send along and even offered to meet for additional time when he was worried we wouldn't be able to get through all of the material…We went through practice problems very efficiently and Josef always answered questions concisely and in a way that was easy to follow…He was very supportive and reached out in advance of sessions asking me to send him materials so that he could prepare in advance…He was always willing to answer my questions, no matter how scattered they were, and didn't just give me the answers but tried to help me think critically."
