The Best For English Tutoring in Sydney

We’ve been providing in-home and online English tutoring in Sydney since 2005, working to help students perform at their very best. Whilst we have seen amazing academic results in this time, what really sets us apart is our focus on bringing out the best in the students we work with and showing them what they are truly capable of.

Alchemy is the medieval science of turning base metals into Gold. It is taking the ordinary and making it extraordinary; something our tutors do with our students every single day.

This is at the heart of what we do. Mentoring and challenging students to perform at a higher level than they ever thought possible.

Our English Tutors Can Teach From Kindergarten to HSC

At Alchemy Tuition, we believe in young people and the innate potential they hold. This belief was spawned from the struggles encountered by our two founders when they were in high school and the transformative power of having a strong mentor to turn things around.

Our English tutors in Sydney have experience working with a variety of different ages and levels and can tutor up to HSC english. and have access to an array of high-quality resources to help your child learn most effectively. For English, we have four main components that we teach:

  • 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’s 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.
