We’ve been providing in-home and online tutoring in Cairns since 2005, working to help students perform at their very best. Whilst our families continue to witness amazing academic results what really sets us apart is our focus on bringing out the best in the students we work with and showing them what they are truly capable of.
Alchemy is the medieval science of turning base metals into Gold. It is taking the ordinary and making it extraordinary; something our tutors do with our students every single day.
This is at the heart of what we do: mentoring and challenging students to perform at a higher level than they ever thought possible.
Our tutors are hand-selected. Selected tutors are taken through a rigorous training and accreditation process, and we provide them with all the tools and resources they need to make the most impact on the students they work with.
We specialise in maths, English and science subjects at all levels from Primary, secondary and senior secondary. We also offer test preparation for various tests and exams, including the feared QCE exams and NAPLAN exams.
You can fill out an online booking form that takes less than three minutes to complete. You can also schedule a call or chat with one of our education experts. Using the information you give, we will match the student with the perfect tutor and schedule the first sessions. The entire process takes about three working days.
Our tutoring rates start at $59 per hour. The rates are transparent, and you only pay what you see. There is no prepayment or contracts, and there are no penalties as long as you give the tutor a 24-hour notice if the student isn’t available for the next lesson.
Our payment terms are pay as you go. Everything is easy and straightforward. We charge your credit card 24 hours after every session. There are no hidden charges, penalties, or prepayments. You can cancel at any time you want.
All Alchemy Tutoring tutors have to go through a training and accreditation program to ensure they have the knowledge and skills to produce remarkable results. We invest over a decade of experience in training our tutors to guarantee the best results.
