We exist because we believe that
young people matter
We believe that every young person regardless of who they are has the potential to excel and succeed and that education is the key to unlocking this potential.
We believe that success isn’t simply an equation of how smart you are or your IQ
The global research on developing talent and peak performance reveals that there is no correlation between IQ and success in any field – this means that each young person with the right support has immense unrealised potential!
We believe that education is the key to unlocking the potential of every young person
The global research reveals that ultimately success in any field is about having great mentors, a supportive environment and knowing how to learn, work and play smart. And this goes to the heart of our mission and why we exist.
And that’s why we provide world class 1 on 1 tutoring and mentoring
Through working with young people 1 on 1 we develop authentic, personal relationships to equip and empower young people with the confidence, skills, knowledge and support they need to realise their potential and change the world around them.

Our mission is to empower and equip 20,000 young people by 2020 with the knowledge, skills, motivation and confidence they need to realise their immense potential to have a positive impact on the world around them
When I was at school I wanted to become a professional soccer player. All of my spare time was spent training kicking a soccer ball. As a result I was a pretty average student – getting mainly C’s and B’s in Year 7 to 10.
Along the way however I was fortunate to find a mentor who changed everything for me. His name was Tony, he was a couple of years older than me and was studying Law at Sydney University.
With Tony’s guidance, support and inspiration I turned my results around from B’s and C’s and after working smart (and hard) I scored the exact 99.6 ATAR I was aiming for get into Law at Sydney University.
Since then, inspired by my own experience with an incredible mentor, I’ve spent the last 10 years mentoring thousands of students from K-12 and beyond, conducted 8 years of research with Australia’s top students who score ATAR’s over 98, and built an incredible team of passionate tutors who teach, mentor and inspire students to be their best.
We’d love to work with you to help you get motivated, confident and equipped with the skills you need to achieve your goals for school and beyond. Give our team a call on 1300 267 888 or shoot us an email at [email protected] to find out more about how we can help!
