HSC Tutoring

Award winning one-on-one tutoring for year 11 & 12 students in-home or online



Recent reviews from real parents:



Year 11 and 12 will require more dedication and focus from a student than any other year so far.
For this reason, having someone by their side to mentor and support them through the hurdles of the HSC is so incredibly valuable.


For more than 15 years, we have been helping year 11 and 12 students realise their true potential through our one-on-one tuition. We work with students of all levels and abilities, from the very bottom to the top of the class.

In addition to HSC English tutoring and HSC maths tutoring, we also offer support in other core HSC subjects; physics, biology, chemistry, business studies, legal studies and economics.

Does your child want to get in to the best Universities? Are they striving to be Dux or make it on the honour roll? We have tutors that can make this happen.

Perhaps your child is an average student and they need someone to pull them to the next level? Our tutors can also help.

Because what we do is one-on-one, every lesson is tailored around your child’s needs, focussing on their specific strengths and weaknesses.

Under the support of an Alchemy tutor you’ll see them grow not only in their academic results but in their confidence and passion for learning.

Having a tutor will improve your child’s academic results – leading to them being more engaged, confident and social at school and putting them on a path to excel far beyond the HSC.

To give your child the best support, get them started with an Alchemy tutor today.

We know how hard it is juggling school pickups, practices and rehearsals for multiple children. 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 accommodate face to face sessions we can pair you up to one of our gold level tutors that can work in our custom built online classroom. 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!

In addition to all levels of HSC English tutoring and HSC maths tutoring, we also offer support in other core HSC subjects; physics, biology, chemistry, business studies, legal studies and economics.

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 is a HSC Tutor in Sydney important?


The HSC is an important time for your child. However, it can also cause them undue stress and concern over their progress and the grades they will receive. To make the process easier for you and your child, an HSC tutor in Sydney could be the answer you have been looking for.

The Higher School Certificate (HSC) is the culmination of all the years of study put in by students in New South Wales. HSC courses are tough, and even the most talented of students can find it difficult to score top marks – making it all the more important for pupils to get support when it’s needed.

From Sydney to Newcastle, and Dubbo to Wollongong, Alchemy Tuition has been providing stellar support services to HSC students across South Wales for over a decade. Whether they want to make the cut for the honour roll or get into a prestigious university, we’ll work with your child to help make their goals a reality.

Working across all the key subject areas including English, Maths, and Science, our tutors have all been through the same experience – studying hard and hoping for good results at the end of their HSC course. They now help students in years 11 and 12 to improve their chances of scoring a top grade.

Every session is tailored to meet the specific needs of pupils, and the focus is not only on improving their knowledge but equipping them with the skills


Achieve your desired HSC marks with a tutor from Alchemy Tuition


Understandably, many students worry about taking their HSC as the grades they receive can affect what they will do with the rest of their lives.

At Alchemy Tuition, we take a holistic approach to our HSC tutoring in Sydney. Our tutors work with your child in the build-up to their HSC and give them the knowledge and tools to approach the exams with success. Additionally, we ensure they have the confidence and self-esteem needed to believe they will be successful and feel confident when they step into the exam room.

Your child might be at the beginning of their HSC course and you want them to be a step ahead by having HSC tutoring. Our tutoring services can help them as they approach the different topics by working on any areas they struggle with and ensuring they have the right knowledge.

Tutoring can also be helpful before your child takes the exams and it can give them that much-needed confidence boost. Your child’s HSC English tutor can help to ensure all book themes have been explored and a HSC maths tutor can make sure all key maths concepts have been revised and that they have strong subject knowledge in all areas. However, the sooner you get tuition for your child, the better they will do.


Alchemy Tuition makes finding the perfect HSC tutor easy


While it can be hard to find the right tutor for your child, we make the whole process easy. As a busy parent, you probably do not have the time to search the internet for a tutor and still not know whether they are going to be worth the money and help your child. Alchemy Tuition has pre-approved tutors who have been through a stringent selection process.

Each tutor is hand-selected, interviewed and double referenced to ensure they can produce a high-quality service. As well as this, they hold a Working with Children Check to ensure your child’s safety. At Alchemy Tuition, we make sure our Sydney tutors consistently deliver a quality service by regularly monitoring them.

Teenagers do not always tell you what is going on, but when you choose Alchemy Tuition, you will get weekly feedback from your child’s tutor as well as a detailed progress report after 10 lessons.

What’s more, we have a simple booking system. You do not need to pay upfront and there are no contracts to sign. While we are confident that your child will enjoy their first session with their tutor, but if they do not, then you will not have to pay.

For a tutoring service that helps your child to succeed in their HSC, contact us today and we will match your child up with the right tutor.

Alchemy Tuition has over 15 years of experience in tutoring. Over the years, we have created an effective result-oriented approach that has yielded remarkable results.

We start by understanding the needs of the student and any possible challenges they might be facing. We treat every student as an individual and use the information we get from our engagement with the student to tailor the tutoring sessions to their needs.

Our HSC tutors will take time to explain the difference concepts to the students in a way the student can understand.

We are passionate about tutoring and helping the student overcome any problems that could be hindering their academic performance.

We have expert tutors covering all HSC subjects and different years. The qualified tutors can help break down complex concepts and explain them to the student in a simplified and easy to understand way for the student.

It’s never too early to start preparing for your HSC exams. Building proper revision and exam approach habits is critical to helping you improve your marks. Our tutors can share the tips that have helped them become successful and achieve exceptional marks in their exams.

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.
