At Alchemy we care about so much more than just marks

At Alchemy Tuition, we are result-oriented, but we understand it takes more than just good grades to make a good student.

Tutoring is a vital resource to the success of every student. But the tedious process of finding good quality tutors often discourages parents from hiring tutors. At Alchemy Tuition, we have made our tutoring process in Reading easier and more convenient, so your family can enjoy the benefits of tutoring without the downsides.

Our tutoring caters to the needs of all students. We work with students who have fallen behind in the curriculum, those struggling in class, and even gifted students who need some direction as they read ahead of the teacher.

With our help and support, you can get your child back on track for success regardless of the subjects they are struggling with or their academic level.

The #1 choice for Reading Tutoring

Reading skills are an invaluable gift that any learner needs to have. At Alchemy Tutoring, we understand strong reading skills are a gateway to endless life opportunities, so we commit to nurturing confident and proficient readers.

We at Alchemy Tutoring believe in understanding individual learning needs and customising our approach to the learner’s strengths and weaknesses. We envision a future where everyone can unlock the gem in literature and explore the world with their reading skills. To make the vision a reality, we work closely with an expert tutoring team that understands the importance of nurturing a reading culture.

How Our Reading Tutoring Benefits Students of All Ages

With personalised approaches, we design our reading tutoring to meet the distinct needs of all-level learners. Our tutors take personalised approaches to ensure each student receives’ unique support and guidance based on their reading struggles.

We carefully select our tutors based on education matters and passion for igniting joy for reading in the students. We are always looking for a tutor who knows when and how to employ a specified strategy that would strengthen any student’s reading skills.

Whether your child struggles with early reading, fluency, or advanced literature analysis, we customise our programs to suit their specified requirements. We understand a solid reading foundation empowers the learner to tackle academic challenges. We, therefore, take the appropriate approaches that would create reading confidence and enthusiasm in your child.

Our Reading Tutoring Services

Proficient reading helps nurture imagination, creativity and makes a transformative force that shapes well-rounded individuals. However, we understand learners have varying reading needs. But no matter where one is in their reading journey, we will walk step by step through a magical world of reading together.

Here are some of our reading tutoring services. Our tutors will assess the learner to help determine the appropriate tutoring service matching each child’s needs.

Early Reading Aid

This is a foundational reading stage where we will focus on letter-sound relationships and sight word recognition. We will customise each session to help the student recognise and understand the letter-sound blends for a better pronunciation foundation.

Depending on the learner’s reading stage, our tutors may employ interactive activities and games to help the student recognise and memorise essential words. These customised approaches will promote faster reading and comprehension in our learners.

Reading Fluency Development

Through guided practice, our students will have timed exercises to improve their reading speed and accuracy while building their confidence to read fluently. We, however, understand students may have varying levels of sustained focus. In this case, our tutors will implement strategies that will help the learner tackle and learn to tackle longer complex sentences with ease.

Reading Comprehension Strategy

At Alchemy tutoring, our reading sessions are aimed at helping the student develop critical thinking skills. This will help our learners make educated guesses based on the textual clues.

This service takes in various reading aspects that will help the student understand the main idea of a passage. Our main tutoring points here surround identifying central themes that would help the student grasp the overall meaning of a text. With the help of a tutor, the student can confidently judge their conclusions based on their ability to draw connections between ideas.

Vocabulary Enrichment

The vocabulary sessions focus on introducing our learners to various words, from synonyms to context-specific vocabulary. We will teach the student how to understand various word usage in different contexts. This boosts our learner’s ability to break down unfamiliar words while reading.

Once our students can deduce the meaning of unfamiliar words from any text, they can be sure of improved comprehension and communication skills with rich vocabulary.

Alchemy Reading Tutors

Our reading tutors at Alchemy consist of a well-selected team passionate about nurturing a love for reading in learners of all ages. We understand extensive experience complements academic knowledge, so we ensure all our tutors are from diverse educational backgrounds with degrees in different English-related fields.

We also ensure the tutors are well-versed with the latest research practices that help personalise our students’ learning plans. This helps ensure we can meet each student’s needs while creating a genuine passion for reading.

The tutors are well-trained in various approaches that will help ignite curiosity, imagination and long-lasting appreciation for reading. Some main approaches we may use include storytelling and other customised plans that inspire our students to explore reading.

We understand the importance of scheduling the tutoring sessions flexibly to accommodate our families’ busy lives. Whether you need to have the reading sessions scheduled on weekdays or during evenings, feel free to discuss them with our tutors.
