Student Coaching

We offer resources and 1:1 coaching to help students stay motivated and unlock their full potential. 


We're passionate about helping students hit their stride and find their strengths. Whether they're struggling with motivation, unsure of what career path to take, or just looking for guidance on general life skills, we've seen great success by coming alongside students, talking through their struggles, and using assessments, activities, and workshops to determine the best path for them.

Our Philosophy

Success is about using our gifts, engaging our passions, and empowering others to do the same.


Aspire Education was born out of Mama D's desire to empower others to discover and seek their dreams; to empower others to seek options when they feel 'trapped' by the education system. Aspire wants to help students rediscover the joy of learning!


We design programs unique to students' gifts and passions, equipping them to take ownership of their future. We provide opportunities for growth and leadership that will allow them to be more discerning and better at engaging others, while developing life skills such as good communication, self discipline, and tolerance.


Leslee ('Mama D') and her team strive to empower you to use your gifts serving others and building a life full of joy and purpose!

Stories of success from a few amazing students

I have had the opportunity to learn a lot from Mama D. Over the course of several years, she has pushed me to grow personally and in leadership skills, often incorporating a mix of both. She is always available and more than willing to help in any way she can. I am so very thankful for all I have learned, and I am equally thankful for her guidance and advice as one of my biggest mentors.
