Steve Xu (CEO)

As the founder of Scholarly Steve Xu  himself excelled in the OC test and Selective School test in addition to receiving a Private School Scholarship to one of Sydney’s Top Private Schools where he completed his secondary education. 

He started Scholarly by teaching students one on one, and through recommendation after recommendation quickly grew to a point he was incapable of continuing this mode of teaching. Moving to group coaching and later online tutoring to accomodate for the demand of parents begging to receive his tuition and enable their kids to achieve extraordinary results.

Steve understood that excellence takes time, effort, and hard work. He has given everything to become part of the solution of providing quality teaching methods and leading kids towards success.

This… and the extraordinary results Scholarly student’s were able to accomplish are what garnered Steve the title of ‘The Selective Guru’.
