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 highest rated year 5 tutoring

Year 5 is a transformative time for students in Australia. It’s when they start developing an ability to take positive actions for their well-being. They ask challenging questions and seek answers that help them make informed decisions and help them act responsibly.

During this year, you will notice a jump in their development of information and communication technology skills across the curriculum. They will take on more subjects, not to mention it is the same year they will sit for the second NAPLAN test.

It’s safe to say it is a busy year for them. As parents, you want to ensure your child has all the help they need because this year could very well determine their career path. At Alchemy Tuition, we’re here to provide the students with the support they need. We have amazing tutors and tutoring services tailored to meet the needs and personality of your child.

Comprehensive Year 5 Tutoring Solutions in One Place

At Alchemy Tuition, we understand that different students need different types of support to excel academically. There are those that need tutoring support, others need test preparation, and others who require motivation and encouragement. That’s why we offer a comprehensive tutoring service catering to all the academic needs of the students we work with.

We aim to give students the support they need to excel in year 5 and beyond. With our help, your child will settle into their new academic year and catch up with the rest. We have the suitable tutors to help your child overcome the obstacles they might be facing, mould them and prepare them for their upcoming academic years.

In-home and Online Tutoring

Tutoring can be strenuous for many familiies because of their commitment and the time it takes to drive to the tutoring location. At Alchemy Tuition, we provide convenient and stress-free tutoring that comes to you.

You can choose between our two types of tutoring services; in-home and online tutoring. With in-home tutoring, we will have a local, born and bred tutor come to your home, office, library or any other suitable place for tutoring for the lessons. You don’t have to worry about beating traffic to get your child to tutoring. The tutor will come to you.

We also have online tutoring that provides our students with access to tutors at any time of the day or night. This type of tutoring is perfect for busy families and students with odd study hours. Our extensive online tutoring platform is designed to provide students with a full one-on-one, hands-on tutoring experience.

In both tutoring methods, we use customized learning plans matched to the needs of the students. We take time to under the needs and learning methods of the students and create a plan and learning materials that make learning engaging, effective and fun.

Test Preparation

At the end of Year 5, your child will be sitting for their second NAPLAN exam. Studies have also found that this is when students begin to understand their career path, and what they score on their NAPLAN has a tremendous effect on their confidence and the career path they choose. This makes giving them the best chance to excel at the exam pivotal for their success.

Our tutors can help your child prepare for the test by creating test preparation guides and ensuring the student remains accountable and follows the guide. The tutor can work with the student to ensure the student has thoroughly prepared and revised for the tests. The tutors have access to extensive resources on the Alchemy Tuition portal, where they can get all the necessary materials to help students prepare for the test.

Besides the academic work, tutors can also equip students with vital tips to help them remain calm during the exam and manage their time. Our tutors have sat for the same exams before and excelled. They can share some of the tips and secrets they use with the students they work with to enhance how they approach tests.


School is a highly competitive and social environment that might challenge some students. Low self-esteem and lack of confidence can easily affect the grades of the student and keep them from achieving their full potential.

We work with tutors who have excellent role model qualities and infectious personalities. They are dedicated to holding the student’s hand, helping them stay focused while improving their self-esteem and confidence.

The goal is to make excellent students and even better citizens. Going by the thousands of reviews we have received from parents we have previously worked with, it’s safe to say we’ve achieved this goal with thousands of students, and our approach to tutoring continues to deliver amazing results.
