My name is Nic.

Selective School Tutoring

Since 2005 I have maintained a 100% success rate in getting students accepted to their selective school of choice.

I have been tutoring for more than 12 years and have worked with students from every school, every grade from K-12 and in almost every subject. However, this is now all I do – selective school test preparation.

The selective school exam is a very very hard exam – even for teachers and parents. It is designed to discriminate against even the strongest of students. And the hard part is that students get very little help preparing for it – their teachers are too busy to focus on it in class, and it can be difficult to find someone who really understands the exam and the requirements of it.

That has become my full time job. Every year up to 15000 students sit the exam, competing for just over 3000 positions in selective schools across NSW and I know exactly what students need to do to become one of those select few.

My one-on-one tutoring targets the unique needs of the student – so if they are strongest at maths but weakest at general ability, I will design the lessons to address this – to maximise productivity and reduce time wasted on content they don’t need.

I feel that my results speak for themselves, but I always start any tutoring relationship with a conversation with you, the parent, to ensure I am the tutor for the job. Once you have booked in your first session, the next step will be a phone call where we can talk about your child, their unique situation and how I can help them get in to their selective school of choice.

Getting a child in to a selective school is not an easy task, but one that will make a significant difference in their High School experience – and I would love to partner with you to make it happen.
