Mr Khoury
Head of Physics

Mansour Khoury, or "Mr K" as he is known by most students, has 23 years experience teaching HSC Physics and Mathematics, with 13 years of teaching in the Science faculty at James Ruse Agricultural High School

Mr Khoury joined ACE in 2018 and led the development of our new Physics course to cater to the challenging new NESA syllabus. He currently teaches classes across both our Parramatta and West Ryde campuses

Justin Wu
Associate Head of Chemistry

Justin finished his HSC studies as DUX of James Ruse Agricultural School, with a perfect ATAR of 99.95 and a massive five subject state ranks! Now, you can find him wrapping up his undergraduate Science Degree (Majoring in Chemistry) at the University of Sydney ahead of starting his post graduate Medicine studies in 2020.

Justin joined ACE with a passion for learning and teaching which has been infectious among both our students and staff! Bringing his broad knowledge of the Chemistry subject matter, as well as his unique understanding of what it takes to succeed in the HSC, Justin delivers a powerful combo of knowledge and experience which he uses to help his students improve their chemistry grades.

Ben Xie
Associate Head of UCAT

Ben joined ACE after working for other UMAT/UCAT tuition businesses and becoming disillusioned with the "factory like" approach these big businesses took to educating students.

Coming to ACE, Ben has been able to shape and deliver a UCAT course which develops students problem solving and critical thinking ability from the ground up, not just forcing them to memorize 1,000 "stock questions".

Also, as a state ranking DUX of the King's School, having achieved a near perfect 99 UMAT Score, and gaining a place in Medicine at UNSW, Ben knows what it takes to succeed!

James Fu
Associate Head of Maths

James is about as passionate a teacher as they come - with a perfect 99.95 ATAR, a perfect 100 UMAT and as one of the top performers in his Medicine cohort at UNSW - James is no stranger to applying thoughtful study and dedication to help him achieve his goals.

Often seeking to deliver extra sessions for his students or staying back after class to help kids tackle particularly tricky concepts, James is as generous as he is intelligent and is a great example of what ACE strives to offer its students every day!

Sam Prince
Associate Head of Economics

With multiple state ranks and a perfect 99.95 ATAR, Sam originally joined ACE as a Chemistry teacher - When ACE then started looking to develop an Economics course, Sam's #2 state rank in the Subject came in handy and he quickly found himself leading the charge in delivering what has become the most thorough and engaging Economics course available!

Knowing what HSC markers are looking for in an Economics essay, Sam hits the nail on the head with the content and discussion material included throughout the ACE course materials and keeps this up to date with constant changes to help students keep on top of topical changes in our national and global economies.
