Recent reviews for the #1 rated private tutoring service in Sydney:



We are all about results; but we know that this means much more than just better results at school. 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 the students of Sydney since 2005, helping thousands of 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.

We offer one-on-one in-home private tuition in and around Sydney to K-12 students of all levels, grades and abilities.

We only work with 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 in and around Sydney; a library, school or even local cafe. We offer flexible session times in the morning, afternoon and even weekends.

We invest more than a decade of experience into helping our tutors to be the best in Sydney, giving them the support and resources they need to bring out the gold in every student they work with.

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 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. Read More

A private tutor in Sydney is one of the best ways to help your child with their education. Some children struggle because they lack the confidence they need to succeed. Other parents choose to have tutoring for their children because they want them to get the best possible results and a place at one of the top universities. No matter what your reasons are, Alchemy Tuition can help.


The best way to find the right private tutor


At Alchemy Tuition, we make it easy and convenient to receive private home tutoring in Sydney. It can be a hassle finding a tutor because there are a lot of options and it can be hard deciphering which tutors are worth the money.

Alchemy Tuition does the hard work for you. We employ only the best tutors for private tutoring in Sydney and we ensure they are high-quality by hand-selecting them, along with interviews and double referencing. We also ensure your child’s safety because they must hold a Working with Children Check to work with us.

Once you have contacted us through our easy online system, we can usually match your child up with their perfect tutor within 72 hours.

We understand that, as parents, you want to know how your child is getting on and that your money is being well-spent. This is why we give you weekly feedback about how your child is getting on and you will also receive an in-depth progress report after every 10 lessons. What’s more, we listen to you, as well as your child, to find out about any concerns you may have.

You can be confident that your child is going to receive the best support from their Alchemy tutor. We consistently monitor our Sydney tutors to ensure they are providing the best possible service for you and your child.


Give your child the tools they need to succeed


Having a home tutor in Sydney can build your child’s self-esteem. Believing that you can do it is half the battle when it comes to education and our tutors can give your child the confidence they need to succeed.

Some children can struggle with large class sizes, especially if they are shy or do not want to appear weak in front of their peers. This can cause them to not ask for help when they are struggling or mess around rather than concentrating. With primary school tutoring in Sydney, they can be free to ask any questions they need to without feeling self-conscious, so that once they get older, they can feel comfortable asking teachers and peers for help.

Home tutoring in Sydney can also help your child to get the top grades, which is essential for the most competitive universities. Your child’s tutor can also help with any areas of weakness and ensure they have good exam technique.

Alchemy Tuition take a holistic approach to education and while grades are important, we also make sure that your child enjoys their education.

Join Alchemy Tuition and experience why we have had so many satisfied parents and students, along with being an award-winning tuition service. Contact us today to find the best home tutor in Sydney for your child.
