Tutoring for the OC Test
A one-on-one preparation program that will give your child the best opportunity for their future.
Gaining entry to an OC class is really hard – which is why a comprehensive OC preparation program is absolutely crucial to succeed.
With a state-wide success rate of only 15%, even the most naturally gifted students need to take the time to prepare – and with many students starting to work with a tutor from as young as first grade this is only getting more and more competitive.
The Alchemy preparation program is designed to familiarise each student with the exam content, show them strategies to confront the most challenging questions and ultimately walk in to the exam with confidence that they know what they are about to face.
Because what we do is one-on-one, every 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.
About our OC Test Tutoring
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.
Please note that our OC preparation program is designed for high performing students. If your child struggles at school, we would suggest you get in touch to organise an English or Maths tutor first. Foundational skills are not the focus of the OC preparation program – it is all about the test and each lesson will centre on the test.
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; reading, writing, mathematics and general ability. Homework will be assigned (if appropriate) and progress will be tracked every 10 weeks.
We use all our own materials that we have developed over more than a decade of supporting students.

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.
Online OC Test Tutoring
Entry into an OC class presents a valuable experience for academically gifted students and is a step in the right direction in helping the student prepare for later Selective School Placement tests. Being a test that is taken by academically gifted students means the competition is high, and the student must do well in the test. This means the student must adequately prepare for the test to do well. At Alchemy Tuition, we have tutors with vast experience in helping students prepare for this and other selective school tests. With our online OC test tutoring, your child can get the assistance they need without disrupting their schedule.
We provide an amazing online tutoring experience that is engaging and interactive, and you determine when you want to take the lessons. The tutor is available to you 24/7, which makes it more flexible even for busy students and families. You get access to quality tutors at a convenient location and time for you.
In-Home OC Test Tutoring
Families can also get OC test tutoring in the convenience of their homes. Should you choose this tutoring option, we will have the tutor come to your home, office or any other physical tutoring location you choose. This method is super convenient, but it comes with other invaluable benefits, including the physical presence of the tutor, which can help with the concentration and management of the session. Even with home tutoring, we try to make it as flexible and convenient as possible.
Besides bringing the tutor to you, which saves you travel time, families also choose their tutoring schedule to tailor it around their needs, and the schedules are flexible. So, if the student can’t make it for a session, they can postpone it at no extra cost by giving the tutor 24-hours notice.
If your child is a high performer and considering taking the OC exam, get in touch today to get started their OC preparation program.
