You’ll be working one-on-one with student in their homes and we only place you with students in your area, so you won’t have to travel far or wide to get to your next student.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

More than 95% of our tuition takes place in student’s homes, so it is more than likley you will work with students in your local area – ideally your suburb or neighbouring community.

The other 5% occurs in our tuition centres (currently Dee Why and Chatswood) or a suitable alternative, such as a public library or cafe. Either way, we endeavour to place you close to home, minimising travel time and maximising local connections.

Once approved you will be prompted to complete your online training units that cover the foundations of being an Alchemy tutor, such as your accreditation, preparing for your first session, building rapport and weekly housekeeping. There are no costs for these units.

In addition, we have quarterly tutor trainings which we encourage all tutors to attend. They are loads of fun and ultra beneficial (and again, there is no charge for these training sessions).

We only consider the very best tutors for our students.

There are 4 fundamental criteria we have:

1. Proven academic success (such as a band 6 in the HSC or pursuing subjects further in University)

2. Excellent communication skills – it isn’t good enough to just know how to do something, you need to be able to convey it in a way that is simple and approachable.

3. Role model material – our tutors are passionate, relatable and a whole lot of fun to be around.

4. Local knowledge. Our tutors need to know the curriculum and requirements of the courses they tutor. Ideally, you would have completed your schooling in Australia, or be a qualified teacher from an English speaking country.

Outside of this, we just look for good people who we would want to be mentored by. People who have a contagious passion for life.

This will depend on you, your availabilities, your subjects and your location. We will give you as many students as possible until you tell us to stop. Generally speaking, we limit most tutors to 10 students per week.

Unfortunately we cannot guarantee you any minimum hours. It will depend on the demand (of which usually out weighs the supply), but we will do everything we can to find you students quickly.

All payments come from Alchemy – you will not be paid directly by your students or their parents. Upon registration you will nominate a bank account for payment and you will be paid in to this account 24 hours after you have logged each session. You are required to confirm sessions within 24 hours of them occurring, via your dashboard or the iPhone app. You will only be paid for confirmed sessions so it is crucial you log these on time.

The first session with any new student acts as your interview and is therefore unpaid. After this, our tutors are paid a premium rate of $25-$35 per hour based on location and time spent with us.

Sure. We’d still love to have you on board! We ask for a minimum commitment of 3 months to allow for authentic relationships to develop between tutor and student. Using your dashboard or the iPhone app you can request cover if you are going away, and we will organise a replacement tutor for your student. Super easy!
Alchemy is the medieval science of turning base metals in to gold. It is taking the ordinary and making it extraordinary. It is a process of constant refinement, allowing the hidden gold to make its way to the surface. It is what we do with our students everyday.

Because what we do is so much more than just helping students with their homework. It is complete academic mentoring, making our students better every session we see them.

We’ve been working one-on-one with students for over 10 years, supporting thousands of students with the very best tutors. We are a private company registered in Australia, with our head office on the Northern Beaches of Sydney and other offices in Singapore and the United States.

Why work with us? Please see above.
