Our Story

Scholarly started from Steve’s frustration with the education system. He never quite fit in to the one-size-fits-all, pigeon-hole system of school and tutoring.

School was too easy.

Tutoring was often too hard.

He wanted to build a learning experience that he never had that would both nourish and challenge, educate and entertain. 

Every hour a child learns in a classroom is an hour taken away from their play, so we have to make it count!’

Master the exam with 3 core principles

1 Laying Foundations

A solid foundation is the building block of your child’s education – building on weak foundations will result in the end product collapsing like a house of cards. Before achieving success, all students will need excellent foundations in reading, writing, mathematics, and thinking skills.

2 Understanding Concepts

Process of high quality teaching, comprehensive reviews and learning support to understand, then reinforce new concepts.

3 Building Fluency

Repetition and countless questions, along with motivation and initiative to go above and beyond. Build an intrinsically motivated scholar who does not rely on parental instruction.

Our philosophy

self-leadership and Initiative

‘The mind is not a vessel to be filled but a fire to be kindled’- Plutarch

We teach our students the importance of self-leadership and not waiting on parents to lead the way. 

Education should be enjoyable

‘What we learn with pleasure, we never forget’ – Alfred Mercier

We foster an energetic and fun environment to ensure that knowledge is retained, not forgotten. Gone are the days of boring-let’s-listen-to-the-teacher-and-take-notes.


All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.

We dare to dream at Scholarly.

We dare to explore the unknown. 

And so we teach our students to be brave and pursue their academic dreams of top Selective Schools, OC Classes and Scholarships to top private schools


I would rather entertain and hope that people learned something than educate people and hope they were entertained.

We know first-hand how we are competing with the likes of Tiktok and Video Games in the ever-dissolving attention spans of students. 

We use take students on a rollercoaster ride in our classes, incorporating pop culture references, memes, funny general knowledge anecdotes. 

Our style is not like your typical lecture – it’s more magical than that; just think about Disney magic or a lecture that’s anything but dull!


Our Company revolves around nourishing happy and competent Children Not one or the other. Both.

Our lessons provide children with a holistic education that goes beyond traditional academia in order to equip them with essential knowledge they can use in their everyday lives. Our students learn from inspiring role models, and the curriculum draws on a wide range of subjects – from Greek mythology to cryptocurrency – so each student can develop into well-rounded individuals. The program also focuses heavily on life skills such as high performance learning, leadership training and stress management which help kids build resilience for success both academically and professionally!


That's the real trouble with the world, too many people grow up.

Let us take the burden of parenting off your shoulders. We’ll handle all the tough conversations so you can maintain a positive and nurturing relationship with your child.

Scholarly… the perfect balance between rigour and joy, creating an inspiring learning environment that will ignite your child's passion for knowledge.
