About the Founder

Strive to Learn was created 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 herself tutors over 15 subjects and incorporates the knowledge she has gained in her professional studies to create an inspiring and conducive learning environment. Josefine’s employees go through extensive training led and designed by her so that they, too, have the expertise to assist you or your child to always Strive to Learn.


Josefine has been an amazing tutor! I’ve been getting As on all my papers and tests! Because of her ability to tutor in various subjects, I would recommend her to anyone looking for a tutor!
