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. Whilst the majority of our training occurs online, we also have regular tutor training days that are a whole lot of fun and ultra beneficial for our tutors.
Whilst you have complete autonomy, we are also never far away – you can contact us anytime via live chat, email or SMS.
You’ll feel like your own boss, but have all the benfits 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 incredible 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 monthly events scheduled throughout the year you will have plenty of opportunities to meet and network with other tutors. Each term we cycle 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 in one of our training webinars.
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
Working at Alchemy is the perfect job for University students.
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.
We also offer specific job-ready training and mentoring and internships at special times throughout the year
This is a job that will look great on your resume and will go a long way towards securing your dream job in the future.

Verified reviews on Google and Glassdoor:
After working with Alchemy for over a year, I can safely say it is one of the easiest to use tutoring services. All tutors are highly skilled and trained in their areas, and will do everything in their power to help your child with their chosen area of difficulty. Overall, it is a great service, and you will not be disappointed by the fantastic management team at Alchemy, and the incredible tutors that devote their time to turning students into gold!Mac Middelton
Great company to work for. They allow for autonomy, but are always there when support is needed. They ensure all tutors are of the highest standard and supply them with first class resources.Lachlan Roach
Alchemy is possibly the most fun, savvy and heartfelt agency I’ve ever seen or experienced, anywhere on earth. The culture of the whole team, the quality of all of the online tools and the calibre of the students and tutors set this business apart and make it a role model for any business to learn from!Tristan Scifo
I have worked in the Money Market for thirty odd years and been employed at various European, US and Australian Banks and Broking houses. A theme that I have identified in that time is a lack of speed to make changes, to implement initiatives, and perhaps listen to the employees and the customers. I am really impressed at the way Alchemy executes their review process and then implements it quickly, with excellence of execution.Steven Morris
Alchemy are a dream to work with: accessible, always open to feedback and eager to improve, and have a steady flow of new students to take on. They have an abundance of resources so that as a tutor you never feel alone, and are always easy to talk to. I would highly recommend working for them.Jenny Lewis Roche
HERE’S WHAT WE LOOK FOR IN A TUTOR
All Alchemy tutors possess these three 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.
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 willing to work with at least 4 students a week.
