We know how hard it is juggling school pickups, practices and rehearsals for multiple children in Sydney. For this reason we come to you and work around your schedule (we bet you breathed a sigh of relief just reading that!).

Where would you like to meet?



In your home

Our most popular and the most convenient option for busy families! Your tutor will come to your home at a time that works for you – no fighting for parking or braving the after school traffic – and work one on one with your child, giving them the skills they need to perform at their best.


At a school or library

If the home isn’t ideal or there are too many siblings or distractions around, your tutor can meet your child in your local library or school. Sometimes being in a public space can increase focus and motivation. Drop them off at the library and go get the grocery shopping done for the week – what a win!



For students in rural areas or who can’t accomodate face to face sessions we can pair you up to one of our gold level tutors that can work via Skype, Facetime or Google hangouts. Our online tutors are those that have completed at least 100 face to face lessons and are the best of the best.


When you book, you simply let us know the best days and times for the lessons and we will organise a tutor to match. Easy, convenient and hassle-free!

Your tutor will work closely with you and your child to ensure they are performing at their optimum capability in all levels of mathematics.

Whilst significant and measurable improvement in class results are our goal for every student we work with, the Alchemy difference is that we care about so much more than just marks.

This mantra permeates everything we do – from the tutors we hire to how we connect and relate to our students. We want to see every student realise their full potential, whatever that may be. Your child will grow in confidence, boost their self-esteem and ultimately change how they view themselves and what they are capable of.

This is the Alchemy difference.

Why choose Alchemy Tuition for maths tuition in Sydney?

We care about so much more than just marks. Alchemy Tuition is all about turning the ordinary into extraordinary and this shows through every single thing we do – from hiring the best mentors that are role-models to their students to structuring our communication and training around bringing out the best in every student we work with. Our founders have seen the benefits this holds first-hand after they struggled in high school too. Their tutors improved their confidence in learning and helped them to excel at school. This is what we aim to do today by pairing your child with the best high school maths tutor in Sydney to suit them.

We bring out the best in students through our one-on-one tutoring designed to give your child a greater sense of confidence, purpose and understanding of their own ability. We make the process simple by matching up your child with an accredited Alchemy tutor that has been hand-selected, carefully trained, double reference checked and monitored for quality and consistency.

There are 3 requirements for every tutor on our team:

  • Proven academic results – Whether this is a band 6 HSC or pursuing it at a higher level, we make sure that our tutors know what they’re teaching. They have to pass our content exam as well, to make sure that they have the right knowledge to teach in that subject.
  • Incredible communication skills – Without these, they might be unable to convey their teachings in an understandable way. They are natural communicators with a natural gift for simplifying difficult concepts. This ensures that they are capable of teaching your child in a way they understand.
  • Role model material – Because we focus on so much more than just marks, it’s important that our tutors are able to act as a role model for their students. Each tutor is selected for their ability to motivate and inspire the children they work with to build confidence, self-esteem, and willingness to learn.

There is no better time than now! As we have mentioned, 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.
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.
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.
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.
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!).
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.
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 hundreds of verified 5-star reviews on Google.
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.
We recommend weekly sessions for every student. Consistency is so important in education, so irregular lessons will affect your child’s progress.
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.
