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.

Our Sydney 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.
Alchemy Tuition does more than tutoring. We work to help the students achieve their goals and discover their full potential. We also understand that every student faces different challenges and our tutors are equipped to handle and assist the students through any academic challenges they are facing.
With our comprehensive online and in-home tutoring services, we can help English students across Sydney improve their grades and understand the fundamentals in different English units. Our tutors are well versed in the various units and will explain the concepts clearly and concisely ensuring that the student understands the concept clearly.
From experience, we know that students do an excellent job in class but are often hampered by their test preparation methods. With the help of our tutors, we can ensure the student prepares adequately for their tests and achieves the best grades possible in their English units.
Our tutors will also equip the students with valuable test preparation and test taking skills that will improve how students approach questions and their response time during exams.
