Frequently Asked Questions:

When is the best time to start tutoring?

There is no better time than now! Tutoring isn’t just for those that are struggling – it also provides advanced students an opportunity to feel challenged and refine their skills. Having someone partner with you to bring out the best in your child is completely invaluable – and we recommend it at every age and level.

Does my child need a tutor?

Tutoring is for more than just those who struggle. In fact, you will usually find the students at the top of the class are there BECAUSE they have a tutor. Your tutor will become a partner in your child’s education journey, bridging the gap between home and the classroom. We believe every single student has something to gain from the support of an Alchemy tutor – and we know you will see this too.

Are there contracts or do I pay in advance?

No – there are no contracts and we are entirely pay as you go. We use an automated payment system that simply charges your debit or credit card 24 hours after each lesson occurs.

Will my tutor provide content and resources?

Yes – your tutor will have full access to our resource centre which contains thousands of worksheets, practice tests and text books. They will tailor every lesson around your child’s needs and design a unique program for them. To avoid waste we encourage our tutors to use digital worksheets so may bring a tablet or laptop – if you’d prefer to have them printed your tutor can send them to you ahead of a lesson for you to print at home.

How long does each lesson go for?

We leave this up to you to discuss with your tutor – but most of our students do between 1-2 hours per week. Our data shows that students see the most progress when they do a 1.5 hour lesson each week. There is no need to agree to a fixed session length – your tutor simply logs the length of session after each lesson occurs (with your prior agreement of course!).

Will my child have an assessment?

Yes. In the first lesson your tutor will deliver an assessment on your child, seeing where their strengths and weaknesses lie. After the session, your tutor will discuss their findings with you and send them through to you by email. From there, they will then develop a 10-week strategy to see your child reach their goals.

Why choose Alchemy over other options?

There are so many reasons, but the one thing we are most proud of is what makes us who we are. Alchemy is the medieval science of turning metals in to gold. It is the act of taking the ordinary and making it extraordinary – something our tutors do with our students every single day. The Alchemy difference is that we care about so much more than just marks. This resonates in everything we do – from the tutors we hire through to the lessons we plan. We want to see your child perform at their very best in all aspects of life – and not just in the classroom. It is this passion for so much more than just academic results that gives us the reputation we have – with thousands of verified 5-star reviews online.

How do you monitor progress?

We test students regularly to monitor improvements. The frequency of this will be up to your tutor, and you are welcome to discuss this with them in the first session to work out a testing cycle that is ideal for your child.

How often will lessons happen?

We recommend weekly sessions for every student. Consistency is so important in education, so irregular lessons may halt your child’s progress.

Is the first lesson a free trial lesson?

No – but it is covered by our first session 100% happiness guarantee. This means that if you are not 100% convinced the tutor we have lined up for you is the right tutor for your child, the session is on us and we can organise someone else that better suits your needs. If however you are happy to continue (and we are confident that you will be!) then we charge you for the first session when you submit payment details.

We also offer online tutoring for busy families and students who have odd study hours. Our skilled, local tutors can tutor English at all levels, from primary to A-Levels to students with different abilities and challenges.

Our tutors have access to various tools they can use for tutoring for the best tutoring results. The tutors are well trained and have the knowledge and skills to deliver the best results in every student they work with.

Besides helping students catch up in class and measure up to the national standards, our English tutors in Adelaide can also help students prepare for their English exams.

We are all about convenience, so each of our lessons is strategically planned and flexible. We can move the lessons around to suit your schedule and that of the student.

Our Adelaide English tutors work with students of all ages and abilities

Tutoring is not just for those who struggle. In fact, every student can benefit from the one-on-one support of an Alchemy English Tutor.

Our English tutors specialise in all areas of English, including:

  • Grammar and writing – At all levels, spelling, grammar, and the way things are written are all important things to think about when studying English. As a creative subject, your child needs to be able to express themselves through their writing and master the language well.
  • Reading and comprehension – Reading and comprehension is the main starting point when learning English. If you don’t understand what is being written, it’s extremely difficult to learn the rest of the subject. Your child starts to learn these from an early age, so it’s important to continue these throughout their school life.
  • Communication – Writing is all about being able to communicate effectively. Through English, you can improve your communication skills in all areas of life and build confidence when speaking and writing.
  • Passion for learning – We don’t just base our work around grades and marks, we want your child to find their passion for learning. We want to improve their confidence, self-esteem, and attitudes towards education, all of which are important in life and help the learning process.

Helping your child develop a solid foundation in English from primary school is vital to their success. Our qualified Adelaide primary English tutors can help students with any English areas they might be struggling with. The tutors can help the students improve all English aspects, from reading to spelling and comprehension. We have tutors to cover all grades from kindergarten to Year 7.

The core skills of English will impact the student’s ability to do well in all subjects, and they come in handy beyond Year 12. That’s why it’s crucial to ensure students do well in English from an early age. With the individualised support of our English tutors in Adelaide, we will ensure we give the student the best chance of excelling in the subject in secondary school.

In HSC, some English subjects are non-optional and contribute to your ATAR. Performing well in the subject could drastically improve your chances of pursuing your preferred course. Most leading public universities also consider your performance in English as one of the selection requirements, making it even more essential to do well in the subject.

Letting strangers into your home or your child’s life can be challenging. That’s why at Alchemy Tuition, we do everything to make the tutoring experience as comfortable and
worry-free as possible. All our tutors are thoroughly background checked and are safe to work with children.

Also, we only work with tutors who are locals to Adelaide and were born and raised there. Not only might they be a familiar face, but they also know the area and understand it well, making it easier for them to find your home and even suggest some great places for tutoring if you don’t have any ideas. We also work with local tutors because verifying their credentials and references is easier.

Private tutoring in Adelaide shouldn’t dry up your finances. With our affordable and competitive hourly rates, providing your child with the support and resources they need to do well in English is now affordable and pocket friendly.
Even better than our rates are our payment terms. We have contract-free, convenient payment terms with no upfront or minimum payment requirements. We charge your credit card 24 hours after every lesson. You only need to set up your payment information once, and we will take over from there.

Alchemy Tuition does more than English tutoring. We work to help your child achieve their goals and discover their full potential.

At Alchemy Tuition, we only hire the best English tutors in Adelaide to work with our children. All our English tutors are hand-selected based on their academic credentials and personality.
