What I most value about NorthShore was that they instilled a sense of responsibility and accountability in me, as well as the core values of motivation, determination and hard work. This idea of having the responsibility to put my one hundred percent into every task and question that I do, along with the accountability to make sure that I get every question correct and never repeat the same error, was the backbone of my academic growth and accomplishments over the years.
I am grateful for North Shore and all the exceptional teachers at Rossmoyne who have taught me well. I would also like to thank my parents for their continuous support and encouragement to excel in any endeavours.
A journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step, and that step is North Shore.
All the teachers at North Shore are extremely friendly. They will motivate their students and encourage them with little awards. Also, they always help with your weak points and try to help you as much as possible. North Shore also taught me new things that you probably won’t learn until a year later at school. As a result, my grades got better, I found school easier, and I became one of the smarter students in my class.
Northshore has been instrumental to my success at Gate and scholarship exams because Northshore provided me with important study skills, self-discipline, advanced course materials and much more. I also obtained valuable training in how to tackle hard questions within a given time limit which is the key to success in any scholarship exam. I would like to extend my heartful gratitude and thanks to all my wonderful teachers at Northshore for showing me my true potential and for guiding me all throughout. Thank you for making one of my many dreams come true.
Before the GATE and scholarship tests happened, I went to the North Shore Holiday Program three times. The program really helped as I learnt time management during a test, and what the test is like through a mock test.
During the later terms of Year 5, North Shore also had weekly in-class GATE mock tests training. This was very good because I can tell how I was fully prepared for the GATE test.
“I would like to thank North Shore and its staff, especially Shaxx for pushing me to a level I never thought was possible. Shaxx has been my teacher and mentor since year 11 and without him I wouldn’t have got a 99 ATAR. I remember when I received my ATAR score at around 3 in the afternoon. At 3:02 I was on the phone with Shaxx. I have never had a teacher as great and as awesome as Shaxx and I don’t think I ever will.”
“I would like to thank North Shore for all the wonderful opportunities it has provided me with, that eventually led to me being accepted in Perth Modern School and receiving a scholarship to Christ Church Grammar School. The teachers at North Shore are passionate about what they teach and are all around sincere and hard-working people. They always give constructive and detailed feedback and visually show what you need to improve. They drive you to put in 200% of your effort in all of your tasks.“
“I would like the thank North Shore and all the staff and teachers who are so dedicated in teaching the students and making sure every lesson if fun and enjoyable. North Shore has been a place where I not only developed academic skills but it also taught me how to be more social and make more friends. North Shore is a great tutoring centre which has taught me to put everything towards not just maths questions but everything in life. Life is like a valley where you have to climb up, and try your best not to fall down the slopes, it will be hard to do this, but one day, when you are older, you will look back at the path you’ve taken and be astonished that you went that far, and persisted.”
“Being at North Shore, I have picked up a truckload of skills and knowledge, had the opportunity to be taught by some fantastic teachers and gained a whole group of friends.”
“North Shore gave me educational support all the way from my first day, to the GATE exam preparation classes in Year 6 and finally to the WACE exams in Year 12. It has been a long tough journey, but my teachers and friends at North Shore, and my parents, were along with me all the way. Not only has North Shore gifted me with academic ability, but also important life skills such as discipline, problem solving, time management, creative thinking and social skills.”
“Thank you to the teachers who have taught me and have been passionate about their work. Thank you for passing on your knowledge to me and encouraging me to strive to do my best. You can only be you, the best you and no one can take that away. My parents and teachers taught me to never give up and try your best. Even if it meant to do extra math or go to that chemistry tutorial. To push your limits and see where you end up. There is no easy road to success.”

Dear Mr Mak, Thank you for teaching me maths for a year. I learnt heaps and had fun while learning. Your techniques have allowed me to gain a placement at North Sydney Girls High. Thanks very much! From a happy student, Louise Cai.

“Thank you so much Rosa for your cooperation with our kids and all students you have, you are the best, most of the students joined North Shore last year in SELECTIVE preparation got a spot in selective schools 😊🤩.”
“A great way to assist overseas kids to make a smooth transition into the Australian educational system esp when skipping a grade. My child enjoyed the challenges from the syllabus of the advanced stream, and he’s enjoying the science component of the course.”
“North Shore year 5 and 6 program — Fast Train is excellent for developing children’s concept in mathematics.”
“Without the skills imparted by North Shore, and support from my parents, I would not have been able to qualify for Duncraig Senior High school through GATE and receive a scholarship to IONA Presentation College.”
“I am extraordinarily privileged to have had access to the amazing teaching and the rewarding programs here at North Shore. I can truly say that this program is excelling in every aspect and provides a quality of teaching I’ve never seen before. I never thought I could write a new text every week and complete a seemingly huge Maths booklet in my busy schedule, but the hours of hard work have paid off with me coming out of the program with selective school success and multiple scholarships.
I also scored a 99.8/100 in the school English component of selective which is all thanks to the incredible teaching of the teachers at North Shore Coaching College. I extend my thanks to all of the teachers that have helped me learn new and exciting Maths principles and equations, who have taught me how to make my poetry flow and who have taught me that patterns and number sequences aren’t all that hard.”
“North Shore has taught me so many things, from expanding polynomials to essay writing techniques, but the one lesson that will always stay with me, throughout my life, is the life lessons they taught me. North Shore taught me that no matter how hard it seems, you can achieve anything if you work hard enough for it.”
Now, when I walk through the doors I just see a smiling teacher and I quickly I grab my seat. After attending North Shore Coaching College, I realised that I didn’t have to be just another high achiever, but I could reach my full potential and be the best version of myself.”
North Shore Secret of Success
- Our programs are researched by highly competent, effective and qualified educators.
- Weekly tests in English, Maths and Thinking Skills (previously known as General Ability) at Year 5 and 6 levels are an integral part of the preparation for success in scholarship exams (ACER, Edutest, AAS) and Selective Schools Exam.
- Continuous improvement and constant monitoring of changes to each state’s High School format and Syllabus. We undertake immediate and effective changes to our curriculum to not only reflect these changes to the High School assessments but to ensure that North Shore remain the most effective tuition college in Australia. Our students go on to distinguish themselves at Australia’s most respected universities.
- Courses have proven extremely beneficial in assisting students to realise their potential and gain placement in Selective Schools and prestigious private schools.
