At Alchemy we care about so much more than just marks

Literacy is a key skill for every student. A student’s ability to read and comprehend is not just limited to the English subject. It determines how the students understand other subjects as well and if they can read and understand content in workbooks and other curriculum materials. Ensuring your child develops superior literacy skills at a tender age gives them an advantage and a head start in their successful academic life.

Alchemy Tuition offers literacy tutoring for students at all levels of the Australian curriculum. With the help of our qualified tutors, we can help your child develop better literacy skills that they can use to understand questions and text that is vital to their success in class. Our literacy tutors will do everything they can to equip the students with the skills, knowledge and resources to help them turn their grades around and top their class.

We do more than help students develop their literacy skills and understanding. Our tutors develop customised teaching programs that help address the areas the student is struggling to produce effective and tangible results.

With our help and support, you can get your child back on track for success regardless of the subjects they are struggling with or their academic level.

The best hand-selected Literacy tutors

Our tutors are chosen not just for academic excellence but for being role models and mentors that have the ability to inspire the young people they work with.

Every tutor is hand selected, interviewed one-on-one and double reference checked before joining our team.

Getting started with any tutoring service is usually the most challenging part. You have to follow the lengthy signup process, sign a contract and scroll through thousands of tutor profiles to find the perfect one.

Parents receive an update after every lesson detailing what was covered and how the student responded. After every 10 lessons, we will send you a more detailed report on the progress of the student, the goals they have achieved, and what we intend to work on in the coming lessons. These reports are a vital resource to you, the student and their teacher.

Once we have all the necessary details about the student and their needs, our experts will find the perfect tutor for your child. It’s a quick, simple, and convenient process.

The #1 choice for Literacy Tutoring

Parents that have tried finding the right tutor for their child know it can be frustrating and, in most cases, without success. At Alchemy Tuition, we handle the process of matching you with the right literacy tutor for your child to save you time and ensure the student begins the tutoring process as soon as possible.

Signing up on Alchemy Tuition is rather simple and quick. We only need you to fill out a short booking form to share more details about the student. This won’t take more than three minutes. You can also get in touch with our team through email or live chat or request one of our education experts to call you back.

With the details you provide, our team will sort through our tutor profiles and find the right one depending on your child’s personality, academic needs, age and learning methods. We are keen to select tutors we know will instantly connect with the student for the best tutoring results.

After the lessons, we will arrange the first lesson. This lesson is an excellent opportunity for everyone to meet, and the tutor may assess the student to understand their needs better. Everything is warm and cordial; in most cases, the tutor and the student will hit the ground running.

Adding literacy tutoring to your busy schedule can be challenging. But with Alchemy Tuition, we make everything simple and convenient. We start by offering two types of tutoring options to cater to the needs of different families.

Why Choose us for Literacy tutoring?

We have in-home tutoring where the tutor comes to your home, office or any other physical location for the tutoring. In-home tutoring is perfect for families with a more predictable and normal schedule who want physical, one-to-one tutoring on weekdays and Saturdays during the day.

For busier families or students who want more convenience and flexibility, we have online tutoring, which gives the student access to their tutor any time of the day or night. With our robust online tutoring platform, we deliver the same engaging and immersive tutoring experience as physical tutoring.

With our customised and convenient schedules, families decide when it’s convenient to take the lessons, which allows them to keep doing the things they love as a family while addressing the student’s academic performance. For students, the convenient schedule also means they can continue doing the things they love and get tutored during their free time.

If the student can’t make it for lessons, just give the tutor a 24-hour notice, and we will reschedule the lesson at no extra cost.

Every parent wants to be involved in everything happening in their child’s life, especially academically. We never leave you behind during the tutoring process. We make it easy for you to keep up and even contribute to the process through regular and consistent email updates sent to you by the tutor after every lesson. We also send you a more detailed report after every 10 lessons that details what the student has covered, their areas of improvement and where they are still struggling. Most importantly, we also highlight what we want to cover in the coming lessons.

Quality tutoring can be expensive for most households. At Alchemy Tuition, we believe every student deserves access to quality and affordable tutoring. Our tutoring charges are by the hour, and we have favourable payment terms that are convenient.

We only charge you for the lessons you take 24 hours after you take them. You only need to set up your payment information once, and we will take it from there. We accept most major credit and debit cards, providing you with convenient methods of making payments and a secure platform to process payments.

Now Offering Online Literacy Tutoring

Literacy is one of the more critical subjects in the Australian curriculum because of its applications in the real world. Although not considered a complex subject by most students, literacy tutoring is still vital for those struggling with the subject or who have missed some time in school and want to catch up. With our online literacy tutoring, we can allow you to improve your understanding and comprehension of the subject without distracting you from the things you love.

Online literacy tutoring offers expanded flexibility because the tutors are available 24/7. The students can take lessons whenever they want as long as they notify the tutor. Also, you can take the lessons anywhere, not just in Australia. You need a strong internet connection, a computer and a conducive environment for learning. Our professional online tutors have access to various tools and features to help you maximise your online tutoring experience and ensure learning is engaging and interactive.

Also Offering Home Literacy Tutoring

Students can also opt for our home literacy tutoring offered by Alchemy Tuition. Home tutoring carries many benefits, including better accountability and lesson management because the tutor is physically present. We understand going to the tutor can be time-consuming and physically demanding. So, we have the tutor come to you instead.

We work with local tutors who understand your area well. The tutors are trained, background checked, and double-referenced from other members in the area, so you can rest assured the tutor we send to your resident is an outstanding member of the community. The tutor can come to your home or office for literacy tutoring. But if there are distractions, you can also plan to have the lessons at the local library or other suitable locations around the area. As with online tutoring, you decide when you want to take lessons, ensuring the students can still do the other activities they love while taking up tutoring.

The Best Private Tutoring Company Near You

Alchemy Tuition is the answer for families that have been looking for the best tutor near me. We have an extensive range of hand-selected literacy tutors from all over Australia ready to provide you with online and home tutoring for students of all ages and different subjects.
