Now I’ll cut to the chase:

We are one of Sydney’s top Selective, Scholarship and OC preparation programs in the whole marketplace.

I know I can help your child discover their potential to get into Sydney’s top 10 schools. So, in order to exceed your expectations and to start our relationship let me introduce myself:

My name is Steve and I have been recently called ‘The Selective Guru’.

But things were not always like this…


Selective Test Preparation

The Selective Test is used to evaluate a student’s academic excellence as well as his or her ability to think critically. The performance of your child is graded on a scale of 120 points.


Scholarship Exam Preparation

A scholarship is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that offers your kid a significant edge in his or her academic pursuit of greatness.


OC Test Preparation

Opportunity Classes (OC) have been developed to cater to students who have achieved high levels of academic success and who wish to further develop their critical thinking ability.

As a child,

I always walked out of the classroom feeling so lost.

I left many classrooms feeling like there was a better way, but when I looked around, nobody complained. Everyone just sat there.

By the time I was 18, people around me started to complain. They knew they were wasting thousands and thousands of dollars on tuition and teaching that was slower and subpar to what they taught themselves. It was faster just learning by yourself!

My self taught method carried me to a top OC, the James Ruse Entry scores, Private School Scholarship and Sydney Uni Law. 

And so I vowed to myself that I was going to be a part of the solution.

My Dream

I Started Scholarly Because I Wanted To Change The Tutoring Industry

Having taught at various Big-Name coaching colleges and experienced coaching first-hand (I have probably been to every single coaching place you could think of)

  • Hurstville,
  • Campsie,
  • Strathfield,
  • Parramatta,
  • Haymarket,

I’ve been all over Sydney and I realised that with most coaching:

  • There was nothing more than a set of questions and timed trial tests.
  • That student results were not based on how much coaching they did.
  • There was barely any teaching in big WEMG and even smaller classes

So I set out on a mission to truly inspire kids to achieve results beyond their wildest dreams. I mean scholarships to schools such as Sydney Grammar, Abbotsleigh, Knox Grammar (schools which would typically cost over $200,000). Entrances to top OC classes such as Beecroft, North Rocks, Matthew Pearce. Entrances to top Selective Schools such as James Ruse, Baulkham Hills, North Sydney Boys/Girls

BUT not for gifted kids.

I wanted to transform ORDINARY kids.

It is much HARDER for someone to transform kids from a low score of 180 in the OC to 250 in Selective (+win multiple scholarships) and this has happened a multitude of times.

The SYSTEM I wanted to create (and have now created) is responsible for transforming ORDINARY children into EXTRAORDINARY SCHOLARS.


Extraordinary Scholars!

The Two Types of Parents (Selective and OC Preparation)

A floater is a parent who thinks it’s all going to be okay. A floater is somebody who has this distant vision is distant goal of getting into a selective school, getting a private scholarship, but their day to day actions are kind of like, you know, they go from coaching college to coach in college, they’re basically a sheep where, you know, wherever their friends tell them to go, they go, right, and they jump around on the coaching college bandwagon

This could mean if your child is spending like an hour, two hours a day, trying to master a musical instrument, plus, they’re spending an hour two hours a day trying to master a sport. Plus, on top of that they got like parties that they need to go to, or they have video games they need to play.
