THE TUTOR OF THE MONTH

 

All of our tutors are incredible, but every month we ask our parent community if any of our tutors have gone above and beyond to support their students. They end up here and get a gift card and a personal letter of recommendation to reward them for their hard work.

Nathan

Sydney Tutor

“Nathan is a perfect tutor for my son. He is extremely calm which comes across in his highly effective tutoring style of ‘partnering for success’. He has increased our son’s confidence so much and never makes him feel inadequate if he struggles to understand something, he simply finds a different way to explain it to him. Whilst Nathan is obviously there to improve our son’s Maths it is also lovely to hear them chat and have a bit of a laugh during ‘brain break’ moments. There is an enormous amount of trust in this tutoring relationship and that is mainly down to the way Nathan has built rapport and a ‘safe space’ in which our son feels very comfortable admitting when he doesn’t understand. I am not sure where our son would be with his Maths if we had not found Nathan via you. Thank you”

Jan, Seaforth

On top of this, Nathan is always a delight to work with, always keen to take on more students where possible and an all round great tutor. He has worked with us for many years and deserves every accolade. Nathan provides consistent, informative, well structured feedback to all her students (Yes, we read all of them!). He has also supported Alchemy in strategy planning which has been great help to creating the bests environment for our tutors and customers. Thanks for your ongoing hard work Nathan.

Salina

Salina

FEBRUARY 2018

“Salina is a mature and lovely person. She knows how to engage with our son and keep him engaged. Always advises me of a change in advance. The biggest improvement I have seen in my son is confidence, inevitably through our tutors’ confidence. Our son hated Maths and was not confident with numbers so I think all that our son has achieved is a milestone. The tutor is an asset to Alchemy.”
Rosie, Banksia

Yasming

Yasming

JANUARY 2018

“Yasming has done an amazing job getting my daughter to apply herself to Maths. My daughter looks forward to her sessions and is trying so much more than she used to. My daughter has received a merit award for significant improvement in her Maths work at school. What I like most about Yasming is that she is patient and thorough.”
Morwenna, Manly

Yin Yin

Yin Yin

DECEMBER 2017

“Yin Yin is punctual and enthusiastic. She is smiley and my daughter looks forward to seeing her. She is helping my daughter to become neater in her hand writing and helping her with Maths and English. I have seen great improvements from my daughter. She concentrates for the 1 hour of study. She enjoys doing small homework set by the tutor. She is trying to get neater. I like most about Yin Yin that she is nice and friendly and although we’ve only had 3 sessions so far, we have seen improvements. My son will now have tutoring too.”
Eri, Double Bay

John

John

NOVEMBER 2017

“John does an excellent job. He communicates concepts clearly and is encouraging and supportive with a natural flair for teaching whatever the subject. John has helped my son to lift his grades substantially this year while his pleasant manner and constructive approach make the tutoring sessions a positive experience that my son genuinely enjoys. The consequence is improved academic results and greater confidence. Exactly what one wants from a tutor.”
Mindy, Manly

Braden

Braden

OCTOBER 2017

“Braden is a very polite and confident young man. He is extremely knowledgeable in Biology. Our daughter has gained confidence with this topic and has not been afraid to sit her exams. Her marks have improved and she is happier at school. Braden is reliable and flexible with tutoring days. He has also shown that he knows Biology and can assist our daughter with what she is currently studying at school. Braden is great with our daughter and they also have a good laugh during the lessons. She was more comfortable to sit her exams and enjoys Biology now. She has a clearer understanding of this topic. For our daughter to have confidence and improved marks in Biology is exactly what we hoped for with tutoring.”
Kellie, Toukley

Madeline

Madeline

SEPTEMBER 2017

“Maddie was a brilliant tutor for our son in weeks up to the HSC. She helped his confidence, his writing style and has made a major difference to how he went about answering questions in the two Advanced English exams. Maddie went to extra efforts to give our son excellent advice on how to use quotes and specific examples from texts. She did her own research and provided great materials for the Shakespeare play he was studying although it wasn’t one that she had been familiar with before.
We thought she developed a good relationship with our son is a very short space of time which made the sessions much more productive as he was keen to take her great advice and help. Thanks again Maddie.”
Trish, Manly Vale

Evie

Evie

AUGUST 2017

“Evie is an incredible tutor. She always turned up on time with a positive attitude which is great from a parent’s point of view. However, she was not only a tutor for my daughter but also a very positive role model and mentor. She looked beyond just telling my daughter the knowledge, she also taught her how to study, how to take notes and what the marker is looking for. She took the time to get to know my daughter so she could find out how she retains knowledge and focused her sessions around this. She was a great fit for my daughter and she is extremely smart but still able to transfer the knowledge to my daughter so she would relate and understand it. Both my daughter and I were sad when my daughter finished Biology in the HSC as she will be sorely missed.”
Heather, Beacon Hill

Nathan

Nathan

JULY 2017

“I cannot stop praising Nathan for his dedication and commitment to supporting my son. Nathan comes prepared to each session and is very patient and supportive of my son. Nathan even sets additional tasks and shares his great tips and tricks for exams and in preparation for exams. This was especially useful for my son in completing his HSC this year. Nathan is supportive and encourages my son. Nathan makes him feel comfortable and so the session is always very productive.
Nathan is very flexible and accommodating around changing tutorial times from week to week. Nathan is well mannered and always acts in a professional manner. I also appreciate Nathan being so flexible around the tutorial times. Thank you Nathan.”

Nicholas

Nicholas

JUNE 2017

“Nick is always encouraging and our son has gained great confidence in his school work. He has improved in confidence to do work by himself and has improved knowledge. Nick’s ability to adapt to what our son needs to work on that particular week is what I most liked as well as being always happy to adjust his time or day for our son’s other commitments. Recently, my son received the school’s “Mira Poljak Encouragement Award” for Improvement in Literacy.”
Natalie, Narraweena

Caitlin

Caitlin

MAY 2017

“Our daughter is totally engaged with Caitlin. She looks forward to the session and is always so proud of what she has has achieved.
We wanted a tutor who would help her see she is more than capable and build confidence, which is now definitely beginning to show.
Our daughter will now say math is one of her favourite subjects and the challenge of going beyond what they are studying in class is making her very proud of her achievements. We most like that Caitlin is always on time, she understands what we are trying to achieve and communicates with our daughter in a way that makes the session feel like fun. I also love that our email after the session gives me a lot of feedback on what they have worked on and our daughter’s attitude and efforts. I intend to continue with the sessions because I would like to think this is the beginning of a long term love of Maths rather than a fearing it.”
