Jacob graduated from The King’s School in 2018 with the school’s highest award for academics. This earned him the HSC All Rounder award and an ATAR of 98.6. He prides himself on his hard-working, ‘practice makes perfect’ approach to learning as well as his ability to connect on more than just an academic level with his students in order to discover the best ways in which to help them – a quality that isn’t always common highly academic tutors. Jacob currently attends Sydney University completing a Bachelor of pre-Honours Economics with a minor in Physics.

Nicole is currently in her second year at Harvard University studying Economics and Computer Science. She graduated in 2017 from Sydney Girls High School with an ATAR of 98.65 and Band 6 results in 13 units. At Harvard, Nicole works both as a Research Assistant for the Departments of Government and Economics, and as a Writing Tutor for the Harvard College Writing Center. She believes that the key to academic and personal success is the ability to cater to individual learning styles, something she thinks can only be achieved by building rapport with a student.
Christina is studying a combined degree of Arts (International Relations) and Laws at the University of Sydney. She completed Year 12 at Kambala in 2017, achieving an ATAR of 99.85.
