1. Strive to learn

Josephine Borman, founder of Strive to Learn, didn’t set out to create an educational project—the career path found her instead. While doing tutoring while studying for her MA in Anthropology, she had an “aha” moment and realized she was doing what she was already enjoying.

“I decided I wanted to create a company that would support any student with any challenge,[train]staff to understand many types of learners, encourage students through their struggles, and instill a growth mindset in each individual student,” Bormann says.

Strive to Learn provides K-12 academic support, academic tutoring, and test preparation (SAT, ACT, etc.). Additionally, a college advising team is available to assist high school students through the entire college admissions process, including career exploration, college roster building and an in-depth approach to essay writing.

All sessions are individualized to allow for individual attention, as well as customized curricula and teaching methods. Strive to Learn primarily meets students online via Zoom, a format Bormann and her team of mentors began using long before the pandemic. Personal sessions are also available.

More than just an educational company, Borrmann’s mission is to improve students’ quality of life by instilling courage and confidence.

“At Strive to Learn, we are all mentors, and we are in this for our students, in whatever way they define success,” Borman says.

More than just a daycare, Tutor Time Child Care and Learning Centers throughout Orange County and the state provide families with young children a “one-of-a-kind school experience” with research-based curricula and early education programs.

The foundation of Tutor Time’s LifeSmart curriculum is based on Howard Gardner’s Theory of Multiple Intelligences – an approach that takes advantage of how each child’s individuality is used to solve problems, build self-esteem and develop their imagination.

Programs are offered from infant age, including morning and afternoon programs for school-aged children. The Homework Club provides support to students in their homework assignments in a structured environment. The Community Club allows students to participate in goal setting, team building skills, and community projects through the My Best Self Program.

In addition, extracurricular electives offer students subjects such as Spanish, phonetics, music, and sports. Spring break programs and summer camps offer a variety of instruction in science, technology, engineering, mathematics (STEM) and science subjects.

Based on a method devised in 1954 by Japanese father Toru Kumon for his son Takeshi, Kumon Math and Reading Centers provide structured after-school math and reading lessons for students from pre-kindergarten through high school.

This method uses short or incremental assignments or worksheets, along with individual instructions that provide students of different learning styles with critical thinking skills and the ability and confidence to learn new material independently, both in the classroom and at home.

Kumon centers are located across Orange County, including the Tustin Market Place operated by Richard Teshiba. The franchise recently celebrated its eight-year anniversary of serving the Tustin community.

“The program builds discipline in completing daily work, allowing students to go beyond their current grade level,” says Teshiba. “With dedication and practice, a student can achieve nearly unlimited success. As with music and sports, math and reading skills benefit from daily practice.”
