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.

The #1 choice for Melbourne Private Tutoring

For private tuition in Melbourne from the very best tutors, you’ve come to the right place!

Here at Alchemy Tuition, we have worked with thousands of children in Australia to help them succeed at school and help them get into the universities that they want. Our Melbourne private tutors are hand-picked by our team and are known for being the best at what they do.

Don’t just take our word for it; look at the thousands of reviews online for our service and see how our tutors have helped changed the lives of students. If you are still not convinced that private tuition is right for your child, carry on reading to find out the top 3 reasons why you should invest in a private tutor.

Top 3 Reasons To Invest In A Private Tutor in Melbourne

There are a plethora of reasons why you should invest in a Melbourne private tutor for your child’s education. Here are just a few of them:

They Will Work At Your Child’s Pace – One of the hardest issues for students struggling in their studies at school is matching the pace they are being taught at. Furthermore, once you fall behind, it can be much harder to then catch up! Teacher’s do not always have the time to go over lessons and many students will not want to ask. With a private tutor from Alchemy, your child will have the chance to learn about topics at their own pace and it is much easier for them to ask questions.

One on One Attention – Class sizes in schools are getting bigger and bigger and most children will end up sitting in a classroom with 30 other students. Teachers then find it a struggle to offer the attention that some students will need. When your child receives private tuition from Alchemy, they will enjoy one to one attention where tutors can go over work with them as many times as they need it to make sense.

Flexibility and Convenience – Private tutoring is great not just for students, but their parents too. We all lead busy lives with hectic schedules and a tutor from Alchemy can work with you to decide on convenient times and the number of sessions needed per week.

Benefits of Private Tutoring in Melbourne for Students

Hiring a private tutor in Melbourne is one of the best investments you can make in your child’s future. Our private tutoring in Melbourne gives students the advantage and helps them improve their chances of excelling in class. Some of the benefits of hiring a private tutor in Melbourne include the following:

It’s common for students to struggle with some subjects and topics. Teachers are under pressure to complete the curriculum in school and often proceed as soon as fast learners grasp the concept. With private tutoring in Melbourne, there’s no pressure to complete the syllabus. Instead, the tutor has all the time to review the material until the student gets it. The additional practice and resources are critical in helping the students understand the subject at their own pace.

In private tutoring, students get the tutor’s full attention for the duration of the lesson. Giving the student undivided attention makes it easier for the tutor to pick up on areas the student is struggling and walk them through how to avoid common mistakes that could be keeping them from achieving their full potential.

At Alchemy Tuition, we know there’s more to the best students other than the grades. That’s why we work with tutors who also make great role models to the students we work with. The tutors can guide the students on their career paths and help them build habits that make them successful in and out of class.

Our tutors have gone through the same curriculum in Melbourne and can help students at various levels prepare themselves and get them closer to their goals.

Students learn differently, and with our private tutoring in Melbourne, our first job is understanding the student’s needs. We then create customised learning plans that leverage students’ strengths to help them work on their weaknesses. This unique approach is tried and proven and delivers exceptional results.
