What parents rave about:
"our tutoring sessions have felt so personalized to me, unlike the many tutors I've seen in the past. I have always been a below-average math student all throughout grade school and now I've gotten As in every single exam. ”

"HANDS DOWN BEST TUTORING SERVICES EVER.”

Strive to Learn has been a phenomenal resource for my children through high school courses and preparing for college applications. They are extremely professional and passionate teachers and helped significantly with testing and my son's college essays. I highly recommend Strive to Learn. You will not be disappointed.
"My son was struggling with enhanced math and once he started working what Luc, his scores came up immediately. Each student is able to lead the session to where they need help. A great approach, and one that is highly successful.”

"Not only did she raise her grades, at the end of her sessions, she’s on top of the world.”

I cannot stand math and for some reason decided to take a 1-month course in statistics at Orange Coast College. Right away I realized that it was a lot tougher than I had imagined, so I came to Strive to Learn. Josefine was absolutely incredible and worked with me as long or as little as I needed, and ended up raising my grade 20 points from when we first met! If I ever need help in another subject I will 1000% be going back to Strive to Learn!
