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 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 best hand-selected tutors for Special Needs students

Our tutors are chosen not just for academic excellence but for being role models and mentors that have the ability to inspire the young people they work with.

Every tutor is hand selected, interviewed one-on-one and double reference checked before joining our team.

Getting started with any tutoring service is usually the most challenging part. You have to follow the lengthy signup process, sign a contract and scroll through thousands of tutor profiles to find the perfect one.

Parents receive an update after every lesson detailing what was covered and how the student responded. After every 10 lessons, we will send you a more detailed report on the progress of the student, the goals they have achieved, and what we intend to work on in the coming lessons. These reports are a vital resource to you, the student and their teacher.

Once we have all the necessary details about the student and their needs, our experts will find the perfect tutor for your child. It’s a quick, simple, and convenient process.

The #1 choice for Special Needs Tutoring

At Alchemy Tutoring, we are dedicated to empowering learning experiences for all students with special needs. We understand every student is abled differently, so we are committed to ensuring each student gets personalised learning approaches that meet their desired goals.

For years in the service, we have learnt that each student comes with strengths, challenges and learning styles. As a result, we customise our one-on-one learning approach to address individual student’s needs and learning styles effectively.

By tailoring our tutoring sessions to each student’s goals, our dedicated tutors work closely with the student, using various teaching strategies and materials to ensure comprehension and engagement.

However, we will assess the student and draw our tutoring plan based on the areas that need improvement. Sometimes we may have to create well-balanced lesson plans depending on the learner’s level of understanding.

We, however, understand some hidden weaknesses can only be revealed with personalised tutoring. This is why our tutors will constantly monitor the learner’s progress and provide detailed feedback. Our tailored approach may occasionally change to help build on the student’s weaknesses.

Our Tutors Qualifications and Experiences

Alchemy has highly qualified and well-experienced tutors who understand the diverse needs of students with special needs. Apart from holding the relevant academic certifications required, each tutor is subjected to specialised training that guides them in effectively working with students with special needs.

We understand learners with special needs need the highest level of support and coordination between different groups, from therapists to educators and guardians. Therefore, we organise frequent workshops that remind our tutors of their duties and how best to deliver standard support.

Students with special needs often have varying abilities to grasp and retain concepts. We, therefore, train our tutors on how to use skill approaches that engage various senses of the student.

At times the tutor may come equipped with various multi-sensory materials. These materials often incorporate visual, auditory and kinesthetic elements that help address our students’ academics and build their confidence.

Our dedicated tutor will also work closely with parents and the student’s teachers to ensure the student’s overall development. We will communicate regularly, even when out of session, to ensure the student receives consistent support and guidance.

We strive to create an inclusive learning environment that ensures our students feel valued, understood and respected beyond academics. This approach helps build a positive rapport enhancing the student’s comfort level and willingness to engage in the learning process.

Individualised Tutoring Process

our study plans for the tutoring are based on the initial assessment process, where the tutor gathers valuable information about the student. However, sometimes we have to conduct a series of activities, including exercises and discussions, to identify specific areas of improvement.

From the assessment, we will discuss our tailored plan with the parents/guardians and set specific goals to help motivate the student’s learning journey. However, some cases may need more insight from therapists and other specialists whom we will work with to create a well-balanced approach for the student’s studies.

So, our tutors will always maintain an open communication plan with all involved parties to help realise the student’s educational and therapeutic goals.

In special cases, when the need arises, we must incorporate the student’s interests, hobbies and passions into our learning activities. This helps create an engaging and enjoyable subject experience by creating an enthusiastic and receptive environment for the learner.

Students with special needs may sometimes have emotional breakdowns or struggles keeping their behaviours in check. We have trained our tutors to employ different sympathetic and patience-filled strategies in such cases.

Some of these include:

Based on the tutor’s constant assessment of the student, we may have to establish clear behavioural expectations at the beginning of each session. This way, our students get to know what is expected of them. Every time the student meets such expectations, we applaud their efforts making them feel valued and appreciated.

In some instances, we may have to incorporate short breaks and frequent activities to prevent restlessness or boredom. These have always worked for our students as they refocus easily and remain engaged in the sessions.

Our tutors’ mastery of visual supports is essential to maintain the student’s focus. Part of our goals include teaching the students various calming techniques, including deep breathing or using sensory tools to manage stress or frustration.

Flexible Teaching Approach

At Alchemy Tutoring, we have learnt to treat each special needs student respectfully. This helps us understands their needs while validating their feelings and experiences. At times, we will use a non-judgemental approach to help build trust with the student despite any setback or difficulty.

We always encourage our parents to learn the verbal praise and rewards system. Goal celebrations and rewards with small incentives are always working for us when celebrating the learner’s milestones. Our students feel even more acknowledged and valued when the same is done at home.

Towards completion of our tutoring schedules, our tutors will always recommend the best books and other learning resources to encourage the student’s independent learning. However, this is only for enrolled students who complete the agreed tutoring sessions.

Our students may have different schedules, so we’ll offer accommodative lesson plans. This way, you can be sure no parent has to cancel their busy schedules for meet-ups. We also have flexible tutoring sessions where we can come home, set up video conference platforms or do the tutoring from our closest centres.

We aim to provide convenient learning from wherever the student will be comfortable. Alchemy Tutoring also has transparent prices that ensure our students and their families know exactly what to expect.

Our commitment to affordability at Alchemy Tutoring means that quality education is within reach for all. Visit our website today or contact us to fill out the inquiry forms and book a place for your learner with special needs.
