The mission of Leading Learners is to provide affordable, one-on-one academic coaching and tutoring to help young people excel in their studies as they become responsible for their own education and independent paths. This family business was founded in Fort Collins in 2012 to tend to the educational needs and aspirations of students throughout the communities of Larimer and Boulder counties.
All of our tutors and coaches are committed to maximizing a student’s potential by recognizing and responding to each student’s individual strengths and limitations. With the help of their dedicated coach, students develop the skills and confidence they need to succeed in the classroom and beyond.
We believe that tutors fulfill a different role than teachers and parents, which is why we focus on forging meaningful relationships that provide a foundation for lasting support. Positive relationships are paramount to student success. We know that the more connected a student feels to his or her tutor/coach, the more the tutor creates trust, respect, and motivation. Our coaches and tutors listen, observe and spend time building a partnership to personalize the learning experience. Through these relationships we provide the following benefits of academic coaching:
- Individualized learning including:
- Tutoring for special circumstances (homeschooling, special education)
- Tutoring for learning disabilities
- Tutoring for test preparation
- Sharpening study habits
- Improving organizational skills
- Clearing homework clutter
- Filling in learning gaps
- Relieving stress of school
- Building confidence
- Inspiring success through positive mentorship
