We, Future Leaders (WFL) provides personalised tutoring and mentoring services to school aged children between the grades of Kindergarten to Year Twelve. Our mobile services are based in the Sutherland Shire and surrounds, primarily within the home of each client.
WFL was founded by a young, local woman - Darian Brooker (formally Darian Lenton), who was disheartened by the educational and socioeconomic injustices between different youth demographics and was determined to bridge this gap. Darian founded WFL with eight years of experience and a strategic vision, beginning phase 1 by tutoring K-12 students in the local Sutherland Shire area. Darian began by building her own personal tutoring reputation purely by word of mouth, until her calendar was so booked out that she hired and trained additional tutors to assist with new enquiries. Since January 2020, WFL has employed twenty-two fantastic tutors and together have assisted over 150 local students.
WFL embodies the values and vision of creating a more equal world - where through education and mentoring, people are deeply empowered to express leadership and undertake enriching actions for themselves and within their community. To achieve this from a tutoring perspective, we integrate personal development and mentoring into our 1:1 lessons. Before we dive into tutoring and mentoring sessions, we begin with a curriculum assessment where we get a snapshot of student's strengths and the areas that need improvement. We make observations about their confidence / hesitation when answering questions, pencil grip and hand-writing, processing speed and their attitudes to learning. This assessment allows us to create a tailored plan for each student to maximise our impact and improve student performance. We believe that it is critical to assist students to see the value and relevance of their educational experience and encourage growth mindset skills thus to improve their academic and personal outcomes.
Our tutors provide far more than specialised curriculum learning; delving into goal setting, growth mindset skills, resilience, confidence building, time management, resourcefulness, organisation, stress management, leadership skills and more. Our holistic approach ensures that students are equipped with skills that are transferrable for life, setting them up for success in school and beyond.
As part of our mission to bridge the education gap between low and high socioeconomic groups, we offer free tutoring and mentoring to students who are nominated by a professional third party, such as their school, health care professional or otherwise. As the business grows, we look forward to helping countless more students.
We are more than just a tutoring company and always will be. We are committed to keeping our values at front of mind. We are committed to providing a high quality, holistic learning experience. We are committed to maintaining our safe and enriching learning environments that bring purpose to learning.
We look forward to seeing our students and tutors evolve into young leaders that are empowered to use their abilities to make meaningful differences to themselves and their community.
