English Tutoring Review | Law

‘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.’

English Tutoring Review | Understanding High School English

‘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%

‘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.’
