Frequently Asked Questions:

When is the best time to start tutoring?

There is no better time than now! Tutoring isn’t just for those that are struggling – it also provides advanced students an opportunity to feel challenged and refine their skills. Having someone partner with you to bring out the best in your child is completely invaluable – and we recommend it at every age and level.

Does my child need a tutor?

Tutoring is for more than just those who struggle. In fact, you will usually find the students at the top of the class are there BECAUSE they have a tutor. Your tutor will become a partner in your child’s education journey, bridging the gap between home and the classroom. We believe every single student has something to gain from the support of an Alchemy tutor – and we know you will see this too.

Are there contracts or do I pay in advance?

No – there are no contracts and we are entirely pay as you go. We use an automated payment system that simply charges your debit or credit card 24 hours after each lesson occurs.

Will my tutor provide content and resources?

Yes – your tutor will have full access to our resource centre which contains thousands of worksheets, practice tests and text books. They will tailor every lesson around your child’s needs and design a unique program for them. To avoid waste we encourage our tutors to use digital worksheets so may bring a tablet or laptop – if you’d prefer to have them printed your tutor can send them to you ahead of a lesson for you to print at home.

How long does each lesson go for?

We leave this up to you to discuss with your tutor – but most of our students do between 1-2 hours per week. Our data shows that students see the most progress when they do a 1.5 hour lesson each week. There is no need to agree to a fixed session length – your tutor simply logs the length of session after each lesson occurs (with your prior agreement of course!).

Will my child have an assessment?

Yes. In the first lesson your tutor will deliver an assessment on your child, seeing where their strengths and weaknesses lie. After the session, your tutor will discuss their findings with you and send them through to you by email. From there, they will then develop a 10-week strategy to see your child reach their goals.

Why choose Alchemy over other options?

There are so many reasons, but the one thing we are most proud of is what makes us who we are. Alchemy is the medieval science of turning metals in to gold. It is the act of taking the ordinary and making it extraordinary – something our tutors do with our students every single day. The Alchemy difference is that we care about so much more than just marks. This resonates in everything we do – from the tutors we hire through to the lessons we plan. We want to see your child perform at their very best in all aspects of life – and not just in the classroom. It is this passion for so much more than just academic results that gives us the reputation we have – with thousands of verified 5-star reviews online.

How do you monitor progress?

We test students regularly to monitor improvements. The frequency of this will be up to your tutor, and you are welcome to discuss this with them in the first session to work out a testing cycle that is ideal for your child.

How often will lessons happen?

We recommend weekly sessions for every student. Consistency is so important in education, so irregular lessons may halt your child’s progress.

Is the first lesson a free trial lesson?

No – but it is covered by our first session 100% happiness guarantee. This means that if you are not 100% convinced the tutor we have lined up for you is the right tutor for your child, the session is on us and we can organise someone else that better suits your needs. If however you are happy to continue (and we are confident that you will be!) then we charge you for the first session when you submit payment details.

The most common benefit attached to tutoring is an improvement in grades. While this is accurate, there are other benefits that students and families stand to gain from our tutoring in Canberra. Here are some of them.

Students who struggle in a subject develop a negative attitude towards it. Maths is a classic example. Most students think math is hard because they don’t do well. Our Canberra tutors’ job is to nurture students and help them improve in the subject. With our customised approach to tutoring, we give the student the time and attention they need to improve on the subject and develop a love for learning it. Simply changing their mindset on the subject has a massive effect on their grades.

Our Canberra tutors can help the student develop better studying and, eventually, better work habits. Most students struggle with concentration and consistency. A tutor can help them work on these aspects by keeping them accountable and helping them come up with proper study tables. Eventually, the habits that the student learns during tutoring carry over to their work which could enhance their chances of success in the workplace.

Students don’t learn the same or at the same pace. Some students are gifted, but because the learning in class doesn’t utilise their strengths, they often struggle.

Our tutors take time to understand the student’s needs and develop a customised learning program suited to the student’s strengths. This approach ensures the tutor maximises the student’s potential to work on their weak areas. Getting one-on-one undivided attention also goes a long way in helping the student grasp concepts easily and effectively. Customising tutoring to the student’s needs makes us effective and allows us to deliver exceptional results.

Online tutoring provides students the luxury of taking lessons when and where they want as long as their environment is suitable for learning. Students can use the various features and tools on the online tutoring portal to enhance engagement and interaction during the tutoring session.

Although the tutor is not physically present, we’ve taken extra precautions to ensure students still get that one-on-one tutoring to ensure they understand the concepts and get the tutor’s full attention for the duration of the lesson.

Through our online tutoring in Canberra, families can save on travel time and maintain their busy schedules while ensuring their children get the support they need to turn their grades around in school.

Conventional tutoring methods involve the parent driving the student to the tutor. This takes valuable time and strains the parents’ other commitments. Nonetheless, conventional tutoring has some huge upsides, like physical presence, which is crucial for younger learners who might have problems with concentration.

Also, we work with tutors born and bred in Canberra and know their way around. They can quickly come to your office, home or the local library, even on short notice. The tutors are geniuses in their specialities and have a firm understanding of the subjects they tutor.
