Our Story

By Lisa Tran
Founder of LSG

A tale about our mission and values...

Our Values

EMPOWER

WE EMPOWER STUDENTS TO TAKE CONTROL OF THEIR LEARNING.

When I graduated VCE, I was shocked at my English results. I was a self-proclaimed ‘maths and science student’ - far from an ‘English student’ who’d eventually score a 45, placing me in the top 2% of the cohort. I knew at that point that I had to share my strategies with others. If I could do it, anyone could.

That’s why over the past 10 years, LSG has strived to create quality resources across all formats - from blogs to YouTube videos - so that we can help you, no matter what style of learning you prefer.

COMMUNICATION

WE ADVOCATE FOR  EASY-TO-UNDERSTAND TEACHING.

We give advice that’s simple, but effective. You might know that I steer students away from stuffing their essays with complex vocabulary. That’s because writing shouldn’t need to *sound* complex. Clear and succinct information sings on its own, and you’ll notice that all LSG resources lead by example (which is why students love our resources)!

Communication is also the lifeblood of LSG behind-the-scenes. We have a remote team (yes, we get to work in our PJs!), so ensuring we can deliver high-quality work demands great communication across our team.

GOOD DESIGN

OUR USERS COME FIRST.

Design isn’t just about beautiful branding and illustrations (both of which we have 😉). Good design priorities our users - how you experience LSG’s customer service,  how you use our products, and dictates what content we should produce next. Good design speaks volumes about LSG’s methodology, approach and execution of our work.

IMPACT

OUR BIG DREAM IS TO DRIVE MODERN EDUCATION FORWARD THROUGH INNOVATION.

We’ve helped thousands of students, tutors, teachers and parents through our work and it’s something we’re extremely proud of. For those who don’t have money to access resources, we’ve created hundreds of resources - all available for free.

We’ve been working diligently on LSG’s own startup project, Journey. We hope that our work here impacts not only Victorians (where we’re based), but interstate in 2021, and eventually internationally in 2022 and beyond.

As a millenial company our impact isn’t just about the work, but also how we support the community.  We believe in 🌱 sustainability and helping others through charity. So far, we’ve supported Skyline Education Foundation, Briding The Gap, and Black Lives Matter.

Small team, big goals

Despite the few hiccups regarding covid-19, I have had an amazing experience at Lisa's Study Guide. With the help of my amazing tutor Fern, she has provided me with constant feedback and as well as resources that are improving my essay-writing skills as well as my understanding of the book. Thank you for creating such a great tutoring service and I am forever grateful for helping me survive year 12 :) I highly recommed Lisa's Study Guides to those who want a life-changing experience!

During the year my friends and I were struggling with the English content, we were still getting B’s but still struggling. Coming up to our English exam, which we were all stressed about, I cane across Lisa’s YouTube videos explaining Frankenstein, Year of Wonders and The Crucible. Since then, we never turned back, watching the every night until we felt ready. Coming out of the exam we all felt so happy and so relaxed, it wasn’t due to our teacher as she never really taught us much (I’m being serious), it was because of these videos!! Thank you for all your help!!

Lisa's Study Guides have been really helpful for my VCE, I highly recommend to anyone who wishes to study more in-depth with English, many of the materials and sample essay isn't being repeatedly mentioned in other sources. Also, I love watching Lisa' youtube videos, very informative and fun!

Lisa's Study Guides is INCREDIBLE!!! As I have learnt from watching all of Lisa's YouTube videos, Lisa is devoted to helping VCE English students achieve success! She takes so much care in delivering excellent content in her videos and summary guides such as 'How to write a Killer Essay' and the Essentials and Advanced English guides. This year I was very determined to achieve a high result in English. At my school, it is rare to have kids crack the 40s for English, but, I am thrilled to say that with LSG's resources I was able to achieve a 45!!!! The sample essays in her books and thorough but easy to understand explanation helped me to improve my writing skills. I highly recommend LSG!
