The Best Primary School Tutoring in Adelaide

One-on-one in-home and online tutoring for K-6 students in Adelaide

The primary school years are formative years for a young person. It is where they start to build their identity – so having someone alongside them that truly believes in them makes such a huge difference. Our Primary School Tutoring is about so much more than just helping them with their school work – it is about pairing them up with a role model and mentor that can support them on their journey.

As a result, our students see an increase in confidence, a greater love of learning and a renewed sense of their own capabilities.

Alchemy is the medieval science of turning base metals into gold. It is taking the ordinary and making it extraordinary. This is what we focus on – bringing out the hidden gold in every student we work with – ultimately showing them what they are truly capable of.

We have been supporting Primary School students since 2005, helping thousands of K-6 students perform at their best. Of course, we have seen an increase in academic results, but the real stories are so much more than just better marks at school. See what parents have to say about our tutors here.

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.

Adelaide Primary School Tutoring To Help Your Child Excel

A solid primary school education is vital to the success of every student. That is why it’s important to ensure you get a competent primary school tutor in Adelaide for your child to prevent any learning gaps from occurring. If the student is already struggling, hiring a tutor can help them cover the areas they didn’t understand and get them on the right track early.

A primary school tutor plays a huge role in a student’s success. At Alchemy Tuition, we emphasise on getting high-quality, skilled, and trained tutors who will provide the primary school students we work with the best support for them to realise their full potential. We offer a variety of services to ensure our students get comprehensive support

Why is primary school tutoring in Adelaide important?

We are passionate and strategic about tutoring. Since we started tutoring in 2005, we have worked with thousands of families in Adelaide and the larger Australia, and we have always delivered positive results. We find the best tutors, train them and provide them with the tools they need to help the students we work with unlock their full potential. This approach has worked for us, considering the thousands of positive reviews we’ve gotten from parents we’ve worked with.

Tests are an essential part of every student’s academic life. Unfortunately, while some students are great in class, they don’t fare well in tests. It could be because of inadequate preparation, anxiety during tests, or poor time management. Regardless of the issue, our tutors will get to the bottom of it and help students improve their test-taking skills and consequently their grades. Our primary school tutors also help the students develop an effective revision schedule and ensure they stick to it.

One of the things that make us stand out as the leading primary school tutor in Adelaide is our firm belief that there’s more to a good student than the marks. We not only find great tutors with impressive academic credentials but also tutors who have an infectious personality and can make great role models for our students. Our tutors play a vital role in helping your child turn their grades around in class and become model citizens in the outside world. With the practices and habits the students pick from our tutors, it is easier for them to become successful.

At Alchemy Tuition, we make the entire tutoring process simple and stress-free. We help match you with the perfect tutor for your child and organise tutoring lessons that are tailored to your family’s needs. The payment methods are also simple and flexible, so you never have to worry about stretching yourself thin when you enrol your child for tutoring with us.

Finding the best tutors is not an easy process. It requires hard work and time. That is why we only hire tutors we hand-select, interview and screen. We also train and accredit the tutors before they can start working on our platform and only hire the ones we are completely confident in.

Every primary student who comes to us has different challenges. Using the same programs from every student is not just boring but might not help the student. Instead, we take time to understand the needs and the challenges of the student then tailor the program to their needs. This way, we target their weak areas and leverage their strengths to help them improve.

Alchemy Tuition has a 100% satisfaction guarantee covering the first lesson. That way, you don’t have to take any unnecessary risks. If you don’t like the lesson or the primary school tutor we have selected for you, we will pay for the lesson.

Our primary goal is to help students do well in school. But over and beyond that, we also help them become good people and good citizens. Our tutors will help students improve their confidence self-esteem and learn practices that will help them become successful in life.

We have tutors for every subject in primary school, including maths and English for all students in primary school right from the Reception years. Our tutoring charges start at $54 per hour for online tutoring and $69 for in-home tutoring. The rates are transparent and available on our website, with no hidden charges whatsoever.

We offer online tutoring and in-home tutoring. With online primary school tutoring, the student has access to the tutor at any time through our feature-intensive tutoring platform. For parents that prefer a more one-on-one approach, we have in-home tutoring. The tutor can come to your home or meet the student at the local library or another location of your choosing if there are too many distractions at home.

This is a decision we leave to the parents. However, we recommend taking at least one lesson per week. But you can consult with the tutor and come up with a more customised and convenient schedule for you.
