OUR NAPLAN PREPARATION PROGRAM: EVERYTHING YOUR CHILD NEEDS TO SUCCEED IN THE NAPLAN TEST.
A one-on-one preparation program that will give your child the individualised support they deserve.
The NAPLAN test is an excellent indication of your child’s performance against other students their age and can be used as a benchmark should they want to enter an OC class, selective school or accelerated streams at high school.
Taking place in years 3, 5, 7 and 9, the NAPLAN test is a great opportunity for your child to showcase their abilities – and this will be further demonstrated with the support of an Alchemy tutor.
The Alchemy preparation program is designed to familiarise each student with the test content, show them strategies to confront the most challenging questions and ultimately allow them to walk in to the exam with confidence.
Because what we do is one-on-one, every preparation program is unique. After the initial assessment, your tutor will know exactly what your child needs to focus on and build the program around these core skills – something you won’t find in a classroom environment.
To give your child the best support in the NAPLAN test, get them started with an accredited Alchemy tutor today.
NAPLAN TUTORING THAT WORKS AROUND YOUR FAMILY’S BUSY SCHEDULE
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 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!
ABOUT OUR NAPLAN PREPARATION PROGRAM
Our program will give each student the skills and knowledge they need to walk in to the NAPLAN test with confidence.
Our program is all about familiarisation – familiarising the student with the question types and format of the exam. By identifying trends of questions and knowing what to expect, your child will know how to respond to the questions and when they don’t, they will know how to choose the next best answer.
In the first session your tutor will assess your child’s current abilities and identify their strengths and weaknesses. From there, they will design the program around their unique needs ensuring adequate time is given to each core skill.
All components of the test will be covered; literacy, numeracy, reading and writing. Homework will be assigned (if appropriate) and progress will be tracked every 10 weeks.
We use a wide range of materials that we have developed and accumulated over more than a decade of supporting students.
AN INVESTMENT IN TO YOUR CHILD’S FUTURE
At Alchemy we give you complete freedom. Unlike coaching colleges, there are no contracts, prepayments or penalties for missed lessons.
We simply charge your debit or credit card 24 hours after each lesson occurs. No paperwork, joining fees or payment processing fees.
Whilst most students do one hour per week, we can work around what you need. Left things a bit late and only have a few months until the exam? We can organise a tutor who can do 2 or 3 lessons a week up until the exam. Just getting started on the journey? Weekly lessons should be plenty.
Whilst we give you flexibility, we strongly encourage regular weekly lessons. Consistency is so important and missing just a few weeks can really get in the way of progress. Holiday lessons are optional, but in most cases your tutor will happily continue through to ensure we keep moving forward week after week.
We offer discounts for multiple lessons each week. Please visit our pricing page for details and pricing in your suburb.
