Tutor of the month:

All of our tutors are incredible, but every month we ask our parent community if their tutor has gone above and beyond to support their students.

If selected they end up here and receive a gift card and a personal letter of recommendation to reward them for their hard work.

We are so passionate about pairing students up with the right tutor for them. When you book, we want to know as much about your child as possible to ensure we can match them with the perfect tutor. 

With more than a thousand of the best tutors across the country, we know we have the right tutor for your child!

Kate

NOVEMBER 2020

“Kate deserves recognition. I was dubious about tutoring…until we found Kate. I could see the result pretty my straight away. My daughter’s writing improved significantly and she is excelling in Maths. The best part is my daughter loves sessions with Kate and she has been asking extra homework! When you see your child enjoy learning, that’s GOLD. I have seen improvements in her writing and vocabulary has been improved significantly. My daughter is naturally good at Maths but Kate is pushing harder and giving her more challenging work. What I like most is she is punctual and flexible. She does not cut corners and spend as much as time needed for a session. She is also a great role model for my year 6 daughter, she absolutely adores her!  Kate is so wonderful as a tutor and person, she deserves a recognition.”

Jeffery

JUNE 2020

“Jeffery has always been great at getting my kids to focus and enjoy learning maths.  He is patient and explains concepts in a way the kids can understand. With the recent changes to online learning, we have moved our sessions with Jeffery onto Zoom. Jeffery prepared the kids for a smooth transition and the tutoring has been able to continue. Jeffery is always calm and patient.  He makes sure the concept his is explaining is understood, and will find another way to explain an issue if necessary.  Jeffery does his best to fit in around our family schedule.  I think we jumped into Zoom tutoring quickly, and Jeffery was understanding and set the kids up so our transition was smooth.”

Karina

APRIL 2020

“After the Xmas holidays, our kids requested to restart tutoring with Karolina. The children lived overseas for 7 years and had a variety of tutors both overseas and in Australia. Both of them have said that Karolina is the best tutor they have had. Karolina has a nice style – firm when required, but accommodating. We have recently changed to the Alchemy online tutoring platform and the kids have seamlessly switched into the new mode (consistent with their schools). Karolina tutors our kids in maths. Their confidence has significantly improved since Karolina has been assisting. Our sons had been advised he would be placed in the extension class at primary school. Our daughter rec’d over 80% in last year’s assessment which was very pleasing as she generally doesn’t enjoy maths. What I love about our tutor is her style – works very well with our kids. Karolina is “fun and fantastic” (from our 10 year old son).”

Samantha, Tutor of the Month winner and best tutor in Sydney

Samantha

MARCH 2020

“Samantha’s dedication to her students is second to none. All she wants to see is that my daughter improves. In turn my daughter has responded with dedication to apply the skills that Samantha has recommended. That involves her improvement with time management, timetabling and application to her English work completed. When my daughter responds ‘I don’t understand’, Samantha is quick to reword her statement again and again so that my daughter finally understands what it is that she has to do. I have noticed great improvement in confidence, organisation and she has been making statement such as ‘I CAN DO THIS’. Her dedication in helping my daughter improve as a student. Thank you very much for sending her to me.”

“Joseph is so caring with my son. We are new to Alchemy and I could not be happier. We have tried MANY tutoring styles for my son and I just know that Joseph has him engaged, learning and actually enjoying his sessions. Joseph is fantastic and is really in-tuned to what my son needs and how he learns! I have totally seen improvement in his wanting to learn and in his fortnightly test results. What I like most about Joseph is he is polite, friendly, but mostly he gets my son and knows how to keep him engaged and he is really getting how he learns.  I am just really happy we got matched with Joseph.  He is a great match for our son.”

January 2020

“Karina has managed to spark a passion for our son’s learning which was basically non existent. She manages to adapt her teaching style so it is perfect for our son to believe in himself and that he can actually understand. We are so happy and impressed. Karina has given him the confidence to attempt problems that he was usually afraid of doing in case he gets them wrong. Our son really didn’t want a tutor however was completely stressed out in the classroom at school, feeling ‘dumb’. He now believes he is capable and believes he can work things out. I like how she allows our son to engage with her as he is a little talkative, though she is very good at bringing him back in to focus. She is patient and shows a level of care and sincerity about our son’s Learning. Thank you Karina.”

For a seven year old to come home from school and an hour later be doing more work I feel is a big ask however Camila knows just what to do for them to have an enjoyable session together, she has also taught me a thing or two as well. Our son is waiting at the door for her excitedly before she arrives. From when he first started their has been a remarkable difference in his engagement with Camilla. We are very blessed to have her as our tutor. I have seen great improvements in our son’s writing, maths and concentration has improved dramatically. I like mostly how creative Camilla is and how she gets our son to engage in the sessions. We are so grateful we have such a pleasant amazing tutor.”
