Josh has been interested in the convergence of technology, education, and entrepreneurship since he began his career as an ACT and SAT tutor over a decade ago. He founded LSAT Engine with the goal of creating a program that could expand the reach of the best private tutors in an adaptive way.
Josh has prepared thousands of students for GMAT, GRE, SAT, ACT, subject exams, and AP courses, and he holds several 99.9th percentile scores including a perfect 36 on the official ACT and a 2380 on the official SAT. His students have matriculated at Harvard, Stanford, Columbia, Oxford, Duke, Penn, Michigan, Northwestern, the Military Academies, and many other top universities around the world. He was a Global Elite Tutor at TutorSource and one of the first 10 full-time employees of Revolution Prep, where he grew the brand footprint as Senior Regional Manager of Southern California while teaching many of the company’s prep courses as a Premium Instructor. He began his career in education by tutoring disadvantaged students from his hometown of Long Beach, California.
Josh is a proud alumnus of UCLA (“I’ll always be a Bruin!”), former water polo player and current rec basketball regular, world traveler, cavern diver, nonfiction fan, and funk music lover. He holds an MBA and a Graduate Certificate in Technology Commercialization from the USC Marshall School of Business, where he was a Dean’s Fellow and a Senior Mentor at the Marshall Youth Organization. While pursuing his graduate degree, he worked at early-stage incubator Launchpad LA and then with the venture team at the Pritzker Group.
Justin has always loved building things. As a child, he would routinely take kitchen appliances apart and occasionally put them back together. He built LSAT Engine as a platform to automate, amplify, and share the LSAT teaching techniques he has honed over the past decade at a scale that would be impossible in person.
Justin began his career in education in 1999 by preparing students for the SAT. He considered pursuing a career in intellectual property law and took the LSAT in 2002, achieving his first 99th percentile score . Not long after that, he began teaching LSAT classes all over Southern California for TestMasters, and occasionally flew to New York to teach weekend courses. After achieving 99th percentile scores on both the GMAT (790) and GRE (1500), he joined the TestMasters Research and Development team and taught several GMAT and GRE courses.
Justin co-founded Blueprint LSAT Preparation with 3 of his former coworkers from TestMasters in 2005, helping create the curriculum and building the company from the ground up. He ultimately decided to leave Blueprint and sold his interest to his fellow co-founders, but continued to teach classes for the company until 2010. Over the years, Justin has received multiple 99th percentile LSAT scores [178, 175], and has helped students gain acceptance to many prestigious law and business schools including Harvard, Stanford, Penn, NYU, Berkeley, UCLA, and USC.
Justin holds a Mechanical Engineering degree from UCLA. He enjoys beach volleyball, camping in Yosemite, and helping friends with home improvement projects.
