Melbourne Primary School Tutoring

One-on-one in-home and online tutoring for P-6 students in Melbourne

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 Melbourne 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.

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.

Melbourne Primary School Tutoring will help your child excel

Although the concepts in primary school might not be difficult for every student, providing your child with an added layer of information and direction can help improve their confidence and help them soak up more information.

The tutor will also identify how best the student learns, which will further ease studies and help the child excel. This information will also prove vital to parents who help their students prepare for their exams.

Our Melbourne Primary School Tutors are former students who have excelled in various subjects. They can pass on their knowledge, tips, and tricks to the student that will help them enjoy the same success they have. In addition, the tutor can also assist the student in preparing for their exam.

Get the best primary school tutors in Melbourne

Besides assisting the child in understanding concepts that they might not have understood in class, the tutor can also help the child keep up with homework and projects, reducing stress and improving organisation, which reduces stress and allows the student to lead a more productive life.

Choosing the best tutor is invaluable to your child. The best tutor is not only armed with information and qualifications but also the experience of teaching other students that they can use to impact the life of your child.

This is why at Alchemy Tuition, we don’t skimp on the quality of primary school tutors we have. We understand how critical this level is and we do our best to find the best. Our primary school tutors in Melbourne go through a rigorous verification process to ensure they have the right experience and qualifications and have stellar reviews from students and parents they have previously worked with.

With over a decade of tutoring experience, we have built a knack for providing high-quality tutoring services with thousands of successful students that have passed through our hands. We go as far as offering tailored sessions to ensure students have everything they need to succeed in all levels of academics.

Melbourne Primary School Tutoring for P-6 students

With us, you don’t have to worry about the student being derailed. All our tutors are products of the Australian educational system, and they use Australian curriculum texts, so the student is studying the same things they study in school.

We also provide in-home private tutoring for students who prefer that personal touch and are within the Melbourne area. The tutor can come to your home, or you can choose to meet at a library or other convenient location with limited distraction.

Primary school is a great time to start English tutoring in Adelaide. Starting English tutoring this early ensures the student has a strong foundation which they can build up on as they progress to higher academic levels. An Alchemy English tutor will ensure your child unlocks their full potential early and continue scaling to new heights and setting them up for lifelong success. For children with a career in English, starting them on our Adelaide English tutoring gives them the best chances of making their dreams come true.

In secondary school, English becomes harder but also more valuable. Students who excel in English have an easier time communicating and expressing themselves since it is a global language. Providing them with individualised and one-on-one learning, students have an easier time understanding the concepts. Our Adelaide secondary school English tutoring is ideal for all students, including those that have fallen behind and are trying to catch up. With our customised approach to learning, we can help the student work on their weak areas and deliver positive and tangible results quickly.

Students in Adelaide will sit for their fair share of tests and exams. For each test, the student needs to prepare adequately to boost their confidence and chances of passing it. Besides tutoring, our Adelaide English tutors can also help the students boost their chances of passing the exams by helping them prepare. The tutors will help the student develop a revision schedule and give them tips to help them manage time and anxiety during the exams.

We have tutors specialising in other subjects as well. We work with gifted students who need guidance when reading ahead of the teacher and students working to reach the national standards. Regardless of your child’s needs, we have the perfect tutor to help them reach their full potential.

Benefits of Our Private School Tutoring in Melbourne

Private school tutoring has more to offer than academic outcomes. Most families that approach private school tutoring in Melbourne want their children to improve academically, but we deliver beyond expectations with our unique approach to tutoring. Some of the additional benefits you get with Alchemy Tuition include the following:

Some academic struggles among students are caused by low self-esteem and a lack of confidence. More so among students that were previously doing well and then suddenly started struggling in class. That is why we work with tutors with fantastic role model qualities who can identify such challenges, help the students work through them, and improve their confidence and self-esteem. Not only does this improve the student’s academic performance, but it also improves their socialising skills.

Students could use a different learning experience away from the crowded classroom and the pressure of catching up with the curriculum. At Alchemy, we focus on making learning fun, engaging and effective. Students enjoy undivided one-on-one attention and the convenience of learning at their convenience and in the environment that works for them. Our learning programs are customised to the student’s needs, ensuring we engage all of the student’s senses.

Our private school tutoring in Melbourne can help students build better work and study habits that remain essential long after tutoring and school.

Our tutors work with the student to develop concentration and consistency when studying and revising for tests. Students can use these skills when they join university and start working. Tutoring can also impart the student with other essential skills like resilience and a positive and can-do attitude. These traits will increase the student’s success in school and life.

This means you can plan around your essential schedules and decide how many lessons you want to take each week.
