DISCOVER WHY WE’RE THE LEADERS IN HSC TUTORING

Our Mission

We Simplify The Path To HSC Success.

Delivering Results. Demystifying Scaling And Subject Selection. Removing The Guesswork.

We Help Our Students Maximise Their ATARS So They Can Pursue Their Dream Degrees And Professions.

OUR FOUNDERS STORY

Talent 100 is the first tutoring college to introduce a truly results-focused learning approach backed by a rich understanding of how scaling works.

Richard discovered what it took to succeed in the HSC after making a bold bet with his father that he could exceed his sister’s HSC mark. After she scored a UAI/ATAR of 99.90, Richard methodically researched what it took to achieve a perfect score. He achieved a perfect score, a UAI of 100 (equivalent to an ATAR of 99.95), and has since developed a framework to help others achieve the same success.

While completing a double degree in Law and Finance at UNSW, Richard founded Talent 100 on the same principles he used so successfully as a student. He’s often stated that he designed the programs and learning experiences he wished existed when he was at high school. Some of the key features include:

Scaling: Richard was the first person to explain the importance of understanding scaling and its implications on subject selection, holding free monthly seminars to educate students and their families. For the first time, students in NSW were able to understand how their performance in a single subject affected their overall ATAR.

Peer-based learning: Richard was the first to introduce the concept of peer-based learning, recognising through his own experience as a private tutor that many top-performing undergraduates studying Medicine, Law, Engineering and Commerce could also pass on their knowledge to the next generation of students. Not only had they recently mastered the content of the HSC, but they could also advise students on the very courses they aspired to study at university. Over time, our tutors naturally developed into ‘Mentors’

Theory and examination practice: Richard personally designed Talent 100 programs to centre around two core principles – that students should learn all content from first principles, and that they should cement that understanding with methodical examination technique.

Community and the ‘third space’: Our learning spaces, designed by award-winning experiential design architects, provide a truly inspiring ‘third space’ between school and home, where students can master their studies in a safe, dynamic and collaborative learning environment with like minded students.

Eight years later, Talent 100 has remained the leader in HSC tutoring. This is because we’re always introducing new industry firsts and staying one step ahead of traditional and outdated tutoring companies. But, as we’ve grown and evolved, one thing has never changed: our passion and commitment to helping students achieve their best and strive to fulfil their ambitions.

Our learning spaces, designed by award-winning experiential design architects, provides a truly inspiring ‘third space’ between school and home, where students can master their studies in a safe, dynamic and collaborative learning environment.

We are passionate about helping students achieve their very best. Most importantly, we recognise that it’s our people that make the difference.

A REMARKABLE CHEMICAL REACTION OCCURS WHEN ANALYSIS MEETS CREATIVITY

What happens when an analytical left-brain and an inventive right-brain join forces to develop a new vision for learning? From the beginning, founder Richard Chua understood that transforming how students are educated could only be achieved by approaching the problem from synergistic – and sometimes opposite – perspectives.

And so, since the beginning, Sarah Spiteri’s dynamic approach to creative business development has fuelled a powerful fusion with Richard’s analytical and data-driven genius. Together this outstanding working partnership is delivering strategic evolution into the education sphere in ways that have never been invented or imagined.

Richard Chua, Founder

Since scoring a perfect UAI of 100, Richard has excelled on the Australian and international stage, studying at the world’s best university and working at some of the world’s most cutting-edge companies. From Bain & Co. to Google and Harvard Business School, from Sydney to Silicon Valley to Boston and Singapore, Richard Chua has established himself as a world-class entrepreneur, focusing his attention on the evolution and delivery of new systems of education – inventing what hasn’t been invented before.

Entrepreneurship, technology and education have always been my three passions. I’m looking forward to using my learnings from Harvard and combining them with scalable technology and strategy to bring about change that is accessible and relevant to current and future economies.

“I thrive in environments where analysis and insight meet creativity with a healthy dose of common sense! I’m a storyteller at heart. With 20 years of experience in solving business problems through creative thinking, I see opportunity and a vision for the future that isn’t always immediately obvious. I view everyday problems and industry challenges through a lens not inhibited by outdated institutionalised thinking. Analysis and insight are useless without knowing how to execute on a game-changing strategic plan. I’m curious about what engages people and how to inspire their individual talents to have more meaningful conversations that create pathways to new and better ways of doing business. Above all, I believe in the power of building authentic human relationships that bring about aligned individual, team and organisational growth and development.” Sarah Spiteri – CEO

OUR PEOPLE

SMART ENVIRONMENT. SMART PEOPLE.

THE PEOPLE OF TALENT 100 ARE THE CORE OF OUR DIVERSE AND HIGH-PERFORMANCE CULTURE. WE HAVE BROUGHT TOGETHER SOME OF THE BEST MINDS IN THE COUNTRY TO HELP BUILD AND DELIVER THE EDUCATION SYSTEM NSW STUDENTS REALLY NEED.

LEADERSHIP TEAM

The Talent 100 Leadership Team includes some of the brightest minds in Australia in their fields and is dedicated to providing the most innovative cutting edge of educational experience available in the country today. Our agile Leadership Team works both holistically and strategically – innovating, inventing and imagining – to bridge the gap between an existing, outdated public educational system and the systems society will need to deliver to enable our brightest minds to develop and succeed in the future.

ACADEMIC TEAM

Raising the standard of excellence in education starts with our Academic Team, which boasts some of Australia’s most respected educators.

Classical academic foundations underpin all of the innovation at Talent 100. Our team combines top-performing undergraduates with PhD academics, as well as some of the most experienced and visionary teachers in the country. We call them ‘Mentors’ instead of teachers and tutors because they impart so much more than just content and theory.

Our Academic Team knows the school system and the ways in which schools are failing to keep up with the challenges and rapid pace of change of today’s digital age.

They ensure Talent 100 properly fills the gaps and complements the school experience, getting students to where they need to be – achieving the academic excellence that opens doors to future careers.

We teach our students how to learn, not just how to earn.

STUDENT EXPERIENCE TEAM

Our Student Experience Team provides the essential face-to-face interaction with the families, parents and students that are part of the Talent 100 family to provide a network of support on an individual level – answering and resolving queries and questions and providing all-important guidance.

This high level of personal interaction and understanding is a key point of difference experienced by our students, providing them with the individual guidance and personalised approach to learning that has become a critical prerequisite for the successful 21st century education that will ensure they achieve their greatest ambitions in life.

OUR STUDENTS

WE’VE STARTED A DIFFERENT CONVERSATION ABOUT EDUCATION.
OUR STUDENTS ARE THE MOST IMPORTANT PART OF THAT.

 “You are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with.” – Jim Rohn

Our students are the young leaders of tomorrow, coming from Sydney’s top selective, private and public schools, and from an incredibly diverse array of multicultural backgrounds. Their ambitions for a successful future and to have a positive impact on the world have brought them to Talent 100. They and their families recognise that together we are challenging the status quo, changing the education conversation and demystifying and simplifying the journey to HSC success.

At Talent 100, our students excel as they discover state-of-the-art spaces and learning environments in which they can engage with other likeminded students, while also experiencing a personalised approach to learning. Talent 100 students aim for top results, and they top the state year after year.

At Talent 100, with commitment and motivation, students can expect to be guided to achieve their personal best and HSC, ATAR and UMAT success in a positive, friendly and supportive environment.

Talent 100 has greatly improved my knowledge in all of the Year 10 subjects (English, Maths and Science). It has an amazing working environment, and the advanced knowledge being taught has prepared me for the harder HSC knowledge that I know will hit me in Year 11. The tutors (Mentors) at this place are great; they can relay their exceptional knowledge to the class clearly and coherently, and I know I can trust their knowledge as they have proved themselves by getting excellent results in their HSC. The style of the in-class booklets and the homework has really improved my way of answering questions for the better. Talent 100 has really changed by studies in the best way possible. Sunny Guan – Year 10 Student (Maths, English & Science)
