Strive to Learn was founded by Josefine Borrmann, who first became a tutor as a way to put herself through college. What started as a necessity soon turned into a passion. Today, Josefine tutors over 15 subjects and incorporates the knowledge she has gained in her professional studies to create an inspiring and creative learning environment. Strive to Learn instructors go through extensive training led and designed by Josefine, so that they, too, have the expertise to assist you or your child to always Strive to Learn.
Josefine started to help students with their college applications when she was hired by EDU 2 in 1, a small test prep and college counseling company in Tustin, CA in 2011. She started primarily by helping the students discover and explore essay topics and editing through the essays with them so that they could challenge their own creativity and use this process as a way to reflect on themselves. After Josefine left EDU 2 in 1 and started Strive to Learn, she continued to focus on the college application process, also counseling for college choice and exploring career options by using various surveys and conversations to help guide students in their exploration. Until this day, her favorite aspect of the application process remain the essays. She loves to combined the creative storytelling elements with the personal insight her students gain. She can combine her background theater and documentary filming with making an impact on her students' lives in the most unique way possible.
