Deon Testore

Senior English Tutor

Deon has been tutoring ever since he completed his HSC in 2018, with highly distinguished results in English Advanced, Extension 1 & Extension 2. His passion for English is something he imparts on all his students, which not only leads to academic success, but personal growth aswell.

Deon is employed at a prestigious criminal law firm in the heart of Sydney, and is on track to be admitted as a Solicitor in the Supreme Court on NSW by February 2025. His combination of legal experience, English achievements, and oratory prowess makes him especially skilful in translating difficult academic concepts to student-attaible levels.

Deon enjoys tutoring English because he believes it is often ignored when compared to STEM subjects like Mathematics or Physics, but is no less centrally relevant to a student’s success in the ATAR and wider workforce. Accordingly, he shifts his students’ persepective on English away from something enigmatic and nonsensical, to something practical, enjoyable, and deeply fulfilling.

Matthew DeOliveira

Good Samaritan Catholic College

5/5

My experience at Growth Academy can cleanly be summarised as a positive one. The teaching staff is highly engaging and well equipped with different levels of explanation for each topic covered. I would highly recommend their teaching services to anyone looking to gain assistance in any area of school learning with classes covering Mathematics and English all the way through to Chemistry and Physics, all of which I actually attended myself. Definitely turned my marks around and helped increase my dedication to my studies.

Ayse Atalay

Amity College

Growth Academy provides education of exceptional quality and is heavily focused on student development. The extra workshop classes, in conjunction with the weekly sessions, definitely enhanced my overall academic performance. The tutors are highly motivating and work wholeheartedly to encourage students in reaching their full potential. The small class structure allows for individualised feedback, as well as maintaining an uplifting and motivating atmosphere. Would definitely recommend!
