'To achieve excellence you must be taught by people who have achieved excellence themselves.'
By studying with an expert, you will acquire the skills and knowledge to get you to the places you want to go.
I know where the very top marks are found.
Not only is my tutoring highly effective, it is fun and you will enjoy the lessons and share a laugh or two.
My intention is that eventually you can look back on this tutoring experience as one of the most rewarding educational experiences in your life.
Students are taken on a first in first served basis.
My favourite time of the year is when students call me in December with delight in their voices to share with me their results.
NOTE: BEWARE OF THE FALSE ECONOMY OF CHEAP TUTORING. WHAT THEY ACHIEVE IN AN HOUR IS SLIGHT COMPARED TO WHAT I ACHIEVE. PLUS, IF YOU ARE GENUINELY AMBITIOUS, YOU NEED TO PUT YOUR TRUST IN SAFE, RELIABLE HANDS.
ANOTHER NOTE: Flawed modern teaching techniques encourage teachers to turn lessons into 'activities', which waste precious time and achieve very little, rather than encourage teachers to master their subjects. My tutoring is intended to counter that by imparting valuable relevant knowledge and vital skills. To parents, I provide the quality education you always wanted for your son or daughter from which they will benefit all their lives. To students, I will provide you with an enriching and enjoyable educational experience that you will eventually look back on fondly as laying the foundation of future achievements. Grades are extremely important and they should be a priority, but a quality education is its own reward.
'Dr Lopez's tuition provided me with a sense of extreme confidence in my English abilities. Consequently, I was able to outperform many of those whose only advice and guidance was provided by teachers who never seemed to go beyond "do the best you can". Dr Lopez's tuition allows his students to stand out.' Ying, English 45/50 ATAR 98.45, graduated to study Law
'I walked out of my first lesson almost overwhelmed by how well I understood all those complex ideas. I knew I had a tutor who could actually teach the high level of writing skills for this demanding subject. It was a great feeling when my marks improved dramatically, especially when one of my essays was used by my class teacher as an example for the other students to follow.'
Duy, ATAR 96%
'Dr Lopez doesn't just teach you English, Politics or History. He teaches you about the world. He teaches you about human nature. His approach is unique and unrivalled. It will bring you the results you know you deserve. It will bring you the success you're striving for.'
Christian, who graduated to study Arts/Law
'I personally felt privileged to be able to sit in as a parent during the lessons, and I found them not just stimulating but fascinating in terms of his vast knowledge but also in his ability to ignite and elicit students' interests in lateral thinking. Alexander and Aspasia stated to me that Dr Lopez has been a milestone in their outlook and approach to learning and to life.' Pauline, medical practitioner and mother of Aspasia and Alexander
'Dr Lopez is amazing.'
Aspasia, English 41/50, ATAR 98.2 graduated to study pharmacy
'I've never had so many 'As' and 'A+s' when it actually counts. It's awesome.'
Alexander, English 41/50, ATAR 98.95 graduated to study Bio-med then Medicine
'Dr Mark Lopez provided me with the best possible material and taught me how to tailor it to produce the highest grade with each examiner.' Connie, 50/50 English, went on to study Law
'Working with Dr Lopez has proved to be funny, insightful and enjoyable. Unlike teachers at school, Dr Lopez makes ambiguous concepts clear in a concise manner as well as revealing the depth behind simple ideas. At school, I've always been getting 'As'. However, Dr Lopez has shown me simple and effective ways of converting already good marks into perfect marks. Thanks.'
Yang, English 39/50 Enter 97.55
