The #1 choice for year 8 tutoring
Your child will grow in confidence, do better at school and love the learning experience
Year 8 is when the tide starts turning for most students. The curriculum seems to get tougher as the focus changes and the concepts get more complicated. Students might start struggling to keep up with the pace of the curriculum and the diversity of new concepts that just keep coming.
Most parents and teachers will notice some students start to struggle, and it will also show in their grades. But it’s nothing that our Year 8 tutoring cannot fix. Some extra practice and support will get the student right back on their path to success.
The secret to making year 8 tutoring work is finding the right tutor that will take time to understand the needs of the student and take an approach that will help restore the student’s confidence as they gradually work on their weak areas. At Alchemy Tuition, you will get the right tutor and more.

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.

Besides the convenient scheduling, the local tutors cater to students of all abilities and grades in the Australian curriculum. With our bespoke approach to tutoring, we take time to understand the needs of every student we work with and create a customised learning plan that focuses on the weak areas of the student and helps them turn their grades around.
Our Year 8 tutors will assess your child and create a learning plan
With our extensive selection of Year 8 tutors, you will find the perfect tutor for every subject in the Australian curriculum, including maths, sciences, social studies and sciences, among other subjects.
Our tutors are hand-selected and interviewed by us. We only pick the tutors that meet our criteria, and they have to go through a thorough training and accreditation process before they can start working with us. This ensures that we always get the best tutors who can help the students achieve their goals and make their dreams a reality.
At Alchemy Tuition, we pride ourselves on offering convenient tutoring services. Sometimes, that means leveraging technology so the student can take their lesson wherever they are. That is why we have a comprehensive feature-filled platform with all the resources the tutors and the students need during the tutoring sessions. The site has effective video communication tools that make it easy to study remotely when preparing for exams. For parents that prefer that physical touch, we offer in-home tutoring for Year 8 students in Gold Coast, Melbourne and Sydney, among other major cities in Australia.
Year 8 Tutoring will improve your child’s confidence
Not every student that comes to us requires tutoring. Our job is to identify the student’s needs and work to ensure they get the assistance and support they need to improve their grades and live out their dream. We do this in a variety of ways;
We offer in-home and online Year 8 tutoring for all subjects. We have highly qualified tutors who specialise in the different subjects ensuring quality results for all the students we tutor. Whether you’re having problems with the new concepts, finding it difficult to keep up in class, or you’re a talented student who finds the pace in class too slow, we have just the tutor for you!
Some students are great in class, right up to when they sit for a test. They get nervous, and anxiety gets the best of them. Our tutors can help the students adequately prepare for the tests and help them overcome any potential challenges that are holding them back. The tutors will equip you with the tips and tricks you need to help you calm down when you’re in the exam room and time management tactics that will help you make the most out of every test you take.
At Alchemy Tuition, we believe there’s more to a good student than the marks. Although good grades are an excellent place to start, we also want to give you the best chance to succeed in life by providing mentoring. Our tutors can help you make important life choices and help you develop habits that will make you a successful person in everything you do.
Now offering Online Year 8 Tutoring
Year 8 is one of the most overlooked academic years by most students. There is no Year 8 NAPLAN assessment or any primary significant assessment, but that’s not to say that Year 8 is unimportant or without its challenges.
Students experience an increase in conceptual difficulty, homework and greater personal responsibility, all of which might cause students to struggle. With our online Year 8 tutoring, we can help students overcome these and other academic challenges they might be experiencing. By offering online tutoring for Year 8 students, we ensure convenience in tutoring to make the life of the student and the family easier while providing them with the support they need to integrate into Year 8.
Also Offering Home Year 8 Tutoring
Students with a more flexible schedule or who prefer physical attention during tutoring can opt for home Year 8 tutoring. It’s almost as convenient as online tutoring because we have the tutor come to you, saving you the trouble of taking your child to tutoring and compromising your schedule.
Although we call it home tutoring, it can also occur in your office, the local library or any other physical location you agree on with the tutor as long as it is conducive to learning. Home tutoring for Year 8 students provides a higher level of accountability and a high learning environment that ensures the student is constantly engaged in learning.
Maths Year 8 Tutoring
One subject that gets conceptually more challenging when you get into Year 8 is math. While there are not significant exams at Year 8, there is a lot of learning in preparation for Years 9, 10, 11 and 12, and what the student learns in Year 8 makes a basis for what they will learn in the subsequent years.
With our Maths Year 8 tutoring, we can give your child the best chances at success by ensuring we cover all the learning gaps and prepare them for the upcoming exams in the later years. We also help them develop a life-long love for learning maths.
