at marquis, you can have it all, or tap into what you really need.
marquis education is distinguished in its holistic and nurturing approach for all pupils; we go further than just achieving good marks for the term, we teach positive study habits and help form a mindset that creates passionate self-directed learners who are compelled to solve creatively and experience secondary education as the springboard for greater learning that never stops.
we work with students from selective, private and public schools and the only determining factor that separates one student's success from the next is their willingness to trust our proven process and programs and show up and do the work. our results speak for themselves, what we are most proud of is the safe and nurturing way in which our students learn as opposed to placing even more stress and pressure on already hard-working students.
that is why at marquis we have designed a super personalised program that's tailored to the individual student, based on where they are, how they learn and what they want to achieve in their HSC. whether it's small group classes in centre or online, short intensive holiday programs, one on one tutoring or online marking with comprehensive and fast feedback.
the HSC is, unfortunately, a game, with the ATAR system a complicated matrix of data, numbers and scaling that will determine your final score. the reality is for most students that the delta between achieving a band 6 and not can be only a few ATAR points which for some could cost them entry into their preferred degree.
taking into consideration what school you already go to, the level of competition in your cohort, the resources available at your school, the level of difficulty re the content and the pace of the teaching at most sydney tutoring colleges.

99.55 ATAR - baulkham hills high school
at the age of 19, abi kugendran founded marquis education. having excelled her HSC at baulkham hills high school, scoring a 99.55 ATAR, and receiving first place in english extension 1, extension 2 and visual arts during her year 12, she decided to help others reach a similar, if not greater, level of academic success. fuelled by her passion to educate, she decided to create marquis, helping young students achieve success in their secondary education. within her first two years of teaching, she helped 3 students state rank in english and over a dozen of her students scored first place ranks at their respective schools.
while completing her bachelor degree, she personally selected and built a team of fellow distinguished and experienced educators who share her passion for education and teaching at marquis. she has created her very own erudite dream team comprising of the most brilliant minds in education and seasoned PhD qualified industry experts. together, they are focused on providing a service they wish existed when they were at school, and have established a culture of holistic care and development for the student which helps them acquire top scores as a by-product.
over the past five years, marquis has flourished remarkably – from a single room in her parents' garage to today’s vibrant learning community of thousands of students and their families. under her impassioned leadership, the marquis educators are igniting a learning revolution to build the future landscape of education in Australia and leave no student behind.
