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.

The #1 choice for Marrickville English Tutoring

Alchemy Tuition has worked with thousands of families helping students improve their English grades. Through our proven customised and unique approach to tutoring, we have achieved remarkable academic results consistently over the years. But what sets us apart and what we are really proud of is how we bring out the best in the students we work with. We focus on showing them what they are truly capable of by building their confidence and self-esteem.

We don’t take the task at hand as simply helping the student improve their English grades. We take on the challenge of turning an ordinary student into an extraordinary one by bringing out the gold in them. It is something our tutors do every day with pride and determination.

At the core of our English tutoring in Marrickville is the push to mentor and challenge students to perform at the best, beyond what they thought was possible for them. The results although common always leave us impressed.

Looking for an English tutor in Marrickville?

Being the busy suburb that it is, finding parking during the after-school rush hour or even driving through the traffic can be tedious and frustrating. Getting your child to the tutoring location amidst all that mayhem is almost impossible.

With Alchemy Tuition, English tutoring in Marrickville is easier and more convenient. We offer the best private, one-on-one English tutoring in Marrickville that is convenient and saves you time.

Our one-on-one tutoring services are available 7 days a week, before school, after school and on weekends. Your tutor will come to you at the most convenient time and location so you don’t have to worry about driving around or trying to find a parking spot.

Typically, the tutor will come to your home. But if that isn’t ideal, you can select another ideal location like a library, school or café that is convenient and conducive for tutoring. Our aim is to make the tutoring process as easy and convenient as possible while minimising disruption. With us, you don’t need to worry about cancelling meetings or pulling the child from the things they love because of tutoring.

Our English tutors in Marrickville are locals and understand the area as well as you do. They make it easy to find a convenient location for tutoring and can get there easily and quickly.

Our Marrickville English tutors work with students of all ages and abilities

We have the best and most qualified tutors in Marrickville. The tutors have excellent academic credentials and are perfect role models and mentors. The tutors have the ability to inspire the young people they work with.

We have a rigorous process that ensures we always get the best tutors in Marrickville. All our tutors are hand-selected. They are interviewed one-on-one and double reference checked before joining our team.

Our tutors are drawn from various professional fields. Some are retired and active teachers and lecturers and we also have high-performing students from leading universities.

We also pour immense resources and experience on the tutors to equip them with all the resources they need to bring out the gold in the students they work with.
Before the tutors can start working with students, we manually verify their Working with Children checks. We only hire the most credible and trustworthy tutors to join our team.

Every parent wants to be a part of the progress of their children. In most cases, parents are left out of the process in English tutoring. At Alchemy, we provide regular and consistent communication to parents to ensure they are a part of the process.

You receive an email from your tutor after every session updating you on what was covered and how your child responded to the content.

After every 10 sessions you will receive a comprehensive report highlighting the development of the student with the support of the English tutor and it also identifies the goals for the next few lessons. The report is designed to be shared with your child’s English teacher and any other person interested in the child’s success.

We believe communication is critical. We do everything necessary to keep you updated. We make it easy even for busy parents to receive feedback and monitor the progress of their children.

English tutoring is a critical investment in the success of your student. It should be costly or drain your family budget. At Alchemy Tuition, we have pocket-friendly tutoring rates that cater to all families. We also give you complete freedom and flexibility because there are no contracts, prepayments or minimum payments. You only pay for the lessons you take.

Our simple payment system charges your credit or debit card 24 hours after every session. You submit your payment details once and we will take care of the rest.
