THE ALCHEMY DIFFERENCE: WE CARE ABOUT SO MUCH MORE THAN JUST MARKS.
Alchemy is the medieval pursuit of turning base metals into gold. It is taking the ordinary and making it extraordinary; something our tutors do every single day with the students they work with.
Alchemy Tuition has provided one-on-one in-home tutoring to K-12 students since 2005. What makes us unique is our complete focus on the student. Our tutors are role models and mentors that strive to boost confidence, increase motivation and ultimately show their students what they are capable of achieving.
What a privilege to work one-on-one with a young person and play such a key role in their world!
We work with students from Kindergarten through to year 12 in all subjects across all areas of Sydney and The Central Coast.

AS AN ALCHEMY TUTOR YOU’LL RECEIVE:
COMPLETE CONTROL OF YOUR SCHEDULE
At Alchemy, you choose when you work. No late nights, early mornings or weekends (unless you want them!)
You set your availabilities and we offer you students that match. Once you’ve accepted, you are in control and can shuffle them around as needed. Got an exam next Tuesday? Just move your students to Wednesday! Going away for 2 weeks? No problem – we can organise another tutor to cover you while you are gone.
Working as an Alchemy tutor gives you complete flexibility to choose when you want to work. You’ll only ever work with students that fit in to your schedule and are close to your home, so you won’t have to travel far or wide to get to your next student.
Take back your calendar with a job that gives you the flexibility you want!
UNRIVALLED TRAINING, RESOURCES AND SUPPORT
With Alchemy we’ve always got your back.
Over the last ten years we’ve developed awesome programs to compliment our incredible resource centre, equipping our tutors with everything they need to support their students. You’ll go through our onboarding online and have access to our full training suite on a range of subjects and specialisations.
Whilst you have complete autonomy, we are also never far away – you can contact us anytime via live chat, phone. email or SMS.
You’ll feel like your own boss, but have all the benefits of working with an experienced organisation that wants the very best for you.
A REWARDING JOB THAT MAKES A DIFFERENCE
Being an Alchemy tutor is far more than just helping a student with their homework. It is being a part of their world. You’ll become their role model, allowing them to see what they are truly capable of. You’ll be planting a seed and watering it each week, allowing the hidden gold come to the surface.
It’s a job that comes with a huge sense of satisfaction, knowing that you are changing the world one student at a time.
There comes a great sense of meaning knowing that what you are doing actually matters – something you’ll experience every day as an Alchemy tutor.
A GREAT HOURLY RATE OF PAY
Our tutors earn more than double what they would normally earn in retail or hospitality (without the hassle of working late nights or weekends!).
We pay our tutors a starting rate between $30 and $35 per hour, with the potential for this to increase beyond $50 per hour as you gain experience and take on more students.
We offer next day payment for every lesson you do: you simply confirm each session using our iPhone app, Android app or dashboard, and payments are made direct to your bank account within 2 business days.
Whether you are saving for a trip around the world or need some extra cash to cover your expenses while studying, tutoring with Alchemy is the very best use of your time.
A COMMUNITY TO BELONG TO
We do everything possible to make you feel like you are a part of the Alchemy family.
With online and in-person events scheduled throughout the year you will have plenty of opportunities to meet and network with other tutors. We hold a range of social, training and volunteer events, allowing you to partner with local charities and non-profit organisations in your city.
You can also connect with other tutors online in our forum or Q&A sessions.
At Alchemy you are so much more than just a number – you are an important part of the community.
A JOB THAT WILL HELP YOU GET ‘THE’ JOB

We’ll help you develop the skills that employers want you to have. You’ll demonstrate independence, leadership, ability to coach others and great rapport building – all skills that are crucial in any job.

What other tutors say:
HERE’S WHAT WE LOOK FOR IN A TUTOR
All Alchemy tutors possess these four criteria:
A HISTORY OF ACADEMIC SUCCESS
Our tutors have proven knowledge in the subject they want to tutor, such as getting a band 6 in the HSC or pursuing that subject at University. They know what it means to work hard and perform at the top of their game. They are the high performers in their area of study.
AMAZING COMMUNICATION SKILLS
Our tutors make complex ideas seem simple by communicating in a way that is relevant and approachable to the student. They can connect and build instant rapport with the families they work with. Their students feel comfortable around them and value the relationship they have.
Our tutors are natural leaders who motivate and inspire those around them. In their personal lives they set goals and have the discipline to make them a reality. They are the kinds of people that others are naturally drawn to. Their students feel better about themselves after every lesson.
THE ABILITY TO WORK WITH
STUDENTS EVERY WEEK
Four is the magic number. It is where we see the best results for our students and the most enjoyment from our tutors. We work closely with you to get you paired up with four students a week as soon as possible.
In addition, we look for tutors who:
- Have graduated from High School.
- Completed their schooling here in Australia. Whilst there are always exceptions, please note that in most cases we do not accept international students.
- Have their drivers license and access to a vehicle (although not a requirement, this will make it much easier to get to your students).
- Are willing to commit for a minimum of 6 months.
- Have an existing Working with children check or be willing to apply for one (full details and reimbursement program provided).
- Have the ability to work in Australia.
- Have an existing ABN or be willing to obtain one (all tutors are engaged as sub-contractors and as such, an ABN is a requirement to receive payment – this is explained in detail during registration).
- Are organised, responsible and on-time.
