At Alchemy we care about so much more than just marks


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 in Sydney 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.

Sydney born and raised: local tutors from your neighbourhood

We offer one-on-one online tutors and in-home tuition in and around Sydney to Primary School students of all levels, grades and abilities.

We only hire local tutors that grew up in the Australian schooling system and completed their HSC here in NSW. We believe in long term relationships – so unlike most other tutoring companies we do not hire international students or those on a working visa. Only local knowledge shared by local tutors.

We come straight to you and meet in your home at a time that works for you. If your home isn’t ideal, there are plenty of other places we can work; a library, school or even online. We offer flexible session times in the morning, afternoon and even weekends.

We keep you in the loop at all times


Communication is so important at Alchemy. After every lesson your tutor will send you written feedback by email updating you on what was covered and how your child responded. This feedback is so valuable, especially for busy parents who may not get a chance to debrief with their tutor at the end of each session.

Every 10 lessons your tutor will also send you a detailed progress report, assessing how your child achieved their goals and what they will work towards in coming lessons. We invite you to share this with your child’s classroom teacher and anyone else invested in their academic journey.

We are always here to support you and your child in whatever way possible – with a full time support team available by phone, SMS, email and chat, communication is at the forefront of what we do.

Primary School Tutoring in Sydney To Help Your Child Excel

The lessons we learn in primary school stay with us our whole lives, so it couldn’t be more important to keep our children’s learning on track. Even at this early stage, difficult topics can be troublesome since they pave the way towards later education. Alchemy Tuition could help your child to get to grips with even the toughest of subjects and prepare them for a lifelong love affair with learning.

Having worked with thousands of K-6 students over the past decade, we love to see success. With clients all across Sydney and New South Wales, our tutors have an in-depth understanding of the syllabus – but their sessions go beyond what’s taught in the classroom. From learning skills to listening techniques and revision coping strategies, we equip children with everything they need to excel.

Sure our students get great academic results, but the benefits of bespoke tutoring extend far beyond their grades. Our mission is to help children to genuinely enjoy school and to benefit from the education they receive. It’s why so many of the kids we work with go on to study at some of Australia’s most prestigious educational institutions, with all the skills they need to continue reaching out to achieve their true potential.

If you have a primary aged child who could benefit from primary school tutoring in Sydney, Alchemy Tuition can help.

We make finding the right Sydney tutor for your child a simple process, giving your child the support they need to succeed in their education.

How does primary school tutoring work?

When searching for private tutoring in Sydney for your primary school-aged child, you may have found that there are many different options and it can be hard to decide which is the right one to go for. With Alchemy Tuition, we make it easy.

We provide tutoring for primary school students in Sydney and we treat each student as an individual to ensure the best results.

Once you have contacted us to arrange your child’s first lesson, we match your child up with their perfect tutor. On average, this only takes 72 hours and we can arrange for your tutoring sessions to take place in the comfort of your own home, or another place of your choice if you would prefer. Sessions can also be arranged for a time that suits you.

During the first lesson, our private Sydney tutors will find out all about your child’s strengths and areas where they need to improve. However, we also make sure that we look at your child as a whole. Children can often lack confidence in certain areas, and this can prevent them from making progress. By making sure that children are confident and have self-esteem, we can help them tackle the parts of the curriculum that have caused them to struggle and this can lead to their success.

Throughout your child’s time with us, you can expect to have open communication and know how your child is getting on. Each week, you will get feedback and you will also receive an in-depth progress report after every 10 sessions.

We have a simple payment system where you will be charged 24 hours after your child’s lesson; no prepayment is required. We also do not have any contracts that tie you in.

What’s more, we have a 100% happiness guarantee. We are sure that your child will get on well in their first lesson with their tutor, but if you are not happy for any reason, we will not charge you.
