OUR RESPONSE TO THE OUTBREAK OF COVID-19
Last updated 23/03/2020
At Alchemy Tuition the safety of our tutors, students and families are of the highest importance.
Given the one-on-one nature of our lessons and provided both tutor and student are in good health, we feel the ongoing risk of continuing with face-to-face lessons to be relatively low. At this time however under guidance provided by the Australian Government, we suggest students and tutors move to online sessions
We have provided all our existing tutors and families the option of doing their lessons online. Our online platform allows tutors and students to connect via video call giving tutors the ability to share worksheets, use a whiteboard and have access to a range of other tools to replicate the in-person experience.
Should schools be cancelled, Alchemy will be here to support your family in every way we can. This will pose a wide range of challenges to working families, and we have planned a number of solutions to help.
To add, the safety and health of our tutors and families remain the utmost priority to us. It is without compromise that if a member of your household (whether you’re a tutor or a student) has either contracted COVID-19, is under enforced quarantine or are showing symptoms, sessions are not to be undertaken face-to-face. Together we can create an optimal environment for learning and motivation.
In saying this, it is business as usual for us – our goal still remains the same; to show every student we support what they are capable of. In times of unease and uncertainty, the role of a mentor is never more valuable – so we encourage all our tutors and families to continue with lessons week in and week out. Face-to-face sessions should only take place if there is an insufficient capability for sessions to be conducted online.
We will continue to monitor the situation closely and will make announcements regarding any changes on both this page and via email.
If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to reach out via phone, email or live chat.
