MEET OUR GUESTS

Jackie Pollina and Josh Kariyev are both the founders of J&J Test Prep, a company that prides itself on maintaining a modern, relatable feel for students. Jackie and Josh are both in their mid-20s, and, upon realizing that they had a knack for tutoring, turned down the traditional path to attend a graduate program and started their own business despite the cries from all around them that it was “too risky” at such a young age.

Jackie graduated with a 4.0 GPA from Hofstra University, where she majored in Philosophy; Josh graduated with a 3.96 GPA from NYU, where he majored in Mathematics.

Jackie and Josh, in maintaining a modern feel, run an academic TikTok account intended to get students more excited about learning as our world becomes increasingly digitized.

Fun Fact: Jackie and Josh are high school sweethearts – they’ve been dating since they were 15 years old!
