How Success Began

Sitting at the back of a classroom in a Sydney high school, Michael Black noticed a concerning pattern in the way the curriculum was taught in Australian schools – read, write, memorise, repeat. Being no stranger to these orthodox teaching methods, he believed that this method simply didn’t do enough to motivate and inspire students to develop a passion for learning.


After graduating with his High School Certificate in 2017, Michael Black had a vision to revolutionise the way in which educational content was taught by tutoring students in their last year of studies at their home.  His focus was on motivating his students so that they can not only learn the content, but want to learn the content.


Now, with three HST Success Tutoring (HST) centres opened in Sydney’s South West, Michael Black has led the company to become a pioneer in the Australian education system. Proudly following the ‘teaching through inspiration’ method, students at HST are inspired to learn the curriculum content, allowing them to become more attentive in their studies which means they’re more likely to see a significant improvement in their grades.


Today, HST stands as an organisation that provides some of the best one-on-one and class tutoring sessions in Australia, with 92 per cent of students receiving an ATAR of 95 + and 98.99 per cent of students seeing an improvement of 30 per cent in their grades.


As more and more students see the benefits of inspired learning, HST is looking forward to continuing to change the mind-set of each student, one lesson at a time.
