From raising chickens in his hometown in the Philippines to being a medical student in the US, Joseph has had quite a journey (both literally and figuratively) throughout his life. He was born in Manila and grew up with his single mother until 6th grade, after which he moved to the United States in 2011 to complete high school. Joseph then attended MIT, where he majored in Biology and finished with 5.0/5.0 GPA. During his time as a student, he was awarded the MIT Gene Brown Prize for Teaching and the MIT Albert G Hill Prize for improving the lives of minorities at MIT. He is currently pursuing his MD at Stanford Medical School.
Joseph has taught the sciences to students of all ages, from those in grade school to those in college. His college-level expertise lies in organic chemistry, biology, and physics. Beyond the classroom, Joseph truly values the power of mentorship, and remains thankful to all the mentors who have helped him. Thus, he is very passionate about mentoring college students, especially those interested in medicine and those preparing for their medical school applications.
During breaks, Joseph can be found at the gym or shooting threes (or at least attempting to) at the basketball courts.
