A message from our founder

‘Frameworks not recipes,’ my grandpa would say. ‘If you spend your time memorising recipes, you will learn to bake a mean chocolate cake, but you’ll never master a souffle.’

My ummappa (grandpa) may be gone now but his words of wisdom have rung true at every stage of my life.

At Intuition Academics, we preach a very simple message. Any student has the potential to understand any topic if they are first taught the core concepts (frameworks) that underly them.

We help students learn by teaching them new ways to think and problem solve. In doing so, we don’t just build good students. We help them realise their true potential and set them up for life.

We can’t wait to help your family do the same.

What our students say about us

David was really helpful, after a few weeks with him my maths grades improved by 10 to 15 percent and eventually I got a 96 followed by a 95, my first grades above 90 in specialist maths preparation. He explains things well and he taught me some new methods I hadn’t been introduced to. I feel much more prepared for year 11 methods after taking tutoring from David. I think it was a great choice, I would definitely recommend!

Malini was a very enthusiastic tutor who was always ready to help you enhance your knowledge in biology. She provided me with proper resources and had interesting methods in order to understand as well as remember the content. I would definitely recommend Malini as she makes an enjoyable and comfortable learning environment.

Jasman taught me how to be smart in the way I study for the ISAT which helped me a lot in juggling the pressure of ISAT as well as Year 12. He even helped me out in his own time to help me come up with study plans which none of my other tutors did!

– Patrick, ISAT student

I was fortunate enough to have received assistance from Lachie, who helped me enormously with questions in mathematics. He was very knowledgeable and patient and a genuinely nice guy. Even after the exams, he kept in touch, and was very supportive and remained encouraging. I could not recommend Lachie enough.
