WE ONLY WORK WITH THE BEST
Every one of our tutors are hand-selected, carefully trained and comprehensively supported to ensure only the highest quality English tutors and Maths tutors can become Alchemy tutors.
We’ve got state ranked tutors, duxes of schools, school captains and tutors who achieved 99+ ATARS. The very best tutors in Melbourne.
There are three requirements for every tutor on our team:
PROVEN ACADEMIC RESULTS
In-depth knowledge and understanding of the content they tutor.
This is at the core of what makes a good tutor – a detailed understanding of their subject.
We only hire locally raised tutors that completed their VCE here in Victoria, so they understand the requirements and expectations of the Australian curriculum.
All our tutors must have proven academic success in the subject they tutor. This might be a band 6 in the VCE, or they might be pursuing it at a higher level in University or beyond. They must pass our content exam to demonstrate they know the curriculum well enough to teach it and they are supported by a comprehensive resource center so they are always well equipped for every session.
INCREDIBLE COMMUNICATION SKILLS
The unique ability to convey complex ideas in a simple way.
It isn’t good enough to simply know content; a good tutor will be able to explain it to a student in a way that makes sense to them.
All our tutors are talented communicators with a natural gift for simplifying complicated concepts. We take this further in their training by exploring the different ways in which students can learn and how information can be best conveyed in their unique learning style.
This is the beauty of private tuition – and why it is far more effective than classroom style learning – because your child’s tutor can build the session around exactly what they need.
ROLE MODEL MATERIAL
Motivation, inspiration and every now and then, a little bit of a challenge.
The alchemy difference is that we focus on so much more than just marks. Our goal is to bring out the gold in every student we work with – something that takes serious dedication and commitment.
Through authentic relationships we aim to boost confidence, increase motivation and ultimately show the students we work with what they are capable of.
Each tutor is selected for their ability to motivate and inspire the students they work with. We want your child to look forward to every session they have, so we recruit our tutors with this in mind.
Every one of our tutors completes a WORKING WITH CHILDREN CHECK which we individually verify before their first session.
