Hey, I'm Lennox!

Founder of Saint's Coaching.

English nerd.

Lover of sci-fi, fitness and cookies.

Dedicated to the art of typo spotting.

My mum passed away in 2009.

I’d just turned 13 and had spent many hours of the last five years in her clothes store, Saints Clothing, taking photos like these on my laptop.

I started Saint’s Coaching as a tribute to my mum and her constant emphasis on the importance of education.

But starting a business wasn’t what I always wanted to do after high school. In fact, I had no idea what to do!

All I knew was that I wasn’t a maths guy and I liked words.

So, from 2016 to 2021, I studied law. It wasn’t until the end of 2020 that I realised something wasn’t right.

I didn’t know it then, but I was trying to become someone I wasn’t, which made me feel depressed and isolated. It was one of the lowest points of my life.

I remember walking into Northbridge in October 2020 to meet my partner for dinner. I was not in a good way and tried to figure out why.

I was walking down William Street, and for the first time in my life, I asked myself, ‘Lennox, why are you doing law?’.

I remember coming to a halt in the middle of the footpath in shock. I could not for the life of me come up with a single answer other than money.

It was probably the greatest moment of clarity I’ve had.

It was also bloody scary.

‘What on Earth am I going to do now? I’ve spent five years studying law. I’ve got one year left of the degree. Do I finish it? Do I drop out? What should I do instead of law?’
The answer to the final question was right in front of me, and it had been for five years at that point. I just didn’t let myself see it.

Since 2016, I’ve tutored English to high school students from various schools in Perth.

And I’ve loved every minute of it.

There were countless occasions where I’d finish a day of uni feeling miserable and finish an evening of tutoring feeling on top of the world. All the signs were there, but I didn’t let myself heed them because I thought I had to become a lawyer. I didn’t think I was allowed to choose a path that excited me.

That is, until that day in October 2020, when I gave myself permission to course-correct and try something that actually makes me look forward to the future, however ‘irresponsible’, ‘risky’ or ‘uncertain’ that decision may be.

After having this epiphany, the idea of completing another year of law was unbearable. But the idea of dropping out with one year left was worse.

So, I asked myself, ‘What would Mum do?’

The following thought instantly came to mind: ‘Finish law school, and go all-in on tutoring.’

And that’s what I did.

But ‘tutoring’ isn’t the best way to describe it.

‘Tutoring with a twist’, perhaps.

From January 2022 to September 2023, I spent over 3,500 hours building an online course that helps Year 12 students in Western Australia easily pass English ATAR so they don’t have to stress about getting into university.

This journey has simultaneously been the scariest and most fulfilling thing I’ve done in my life, and I’m so excited to show you what I’ve built.

The online course is called English ATAR Made Simple (EAMS).

At the outset, I aimed to make EAMS the best educational experience a Year 12 taking English ATAR can receive. And I know without a shadow of a doubt I’ve achieved that goal.

My mum believed in quality education, and I’m grateful to Aquinas and UWA for providing just that. Now, with EAMS, it’s my turn to give back.

If you also believe in quality education, come and see what all the fuss is about and join the free Saints Coaching Community now.
