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.
