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.

what-you-will-receive

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.

 

PLUS SO MUCH MORE.

    Yasming, Manly
  • I think Alchemy is a great place to work. Nic and Matt are always really helpful and I get to work with some great students. More events such as the homeless charity event would be good, I really enjoyed that event and it was a good chance to meet Matt and the other tutors and get to talk with them about their experiences.

    Taylor, Chatswood
  • I think you guys are great! Very supportive people that are motivated and passionate – thank you for the great work.

what-we-look-for

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.

ROLE-MODEL QUALITIES

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.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

We specialise in one-on-one in-home tuition, so you will be working in your student’s home. From time to time a student may request meeting at a public library or school, but 98% of sessions happen in the student’s home. You will only be ever asked to work with students close to you (within 8kms) and you are free to accept or reject student offers as you wish.
Yes! Upon registering in to our system you will select the subjects you are confident in and you will only be offered students that fall under these.
No, not at all. We accept tutors from all different backgrounds as long as they meet our criteria as defined above.
This will depend on you, your availabilities, your subjects and your location. We will offer you as many students as possible until you ask us to stop. Generally speaking, we limit most tutors to 10 students per week, but have an expectation that you work with at least 4 students per week. Unfortunately we cannot guarantee you any minimum hours as it depend on the demand in your area (of which usually out weighs the supply). Once you are in our system we will do everything we can to find you students as soon as possible!
Generally speaking we require our tutors to have completed their schooling here in Australia so they are familiar with local curriculum and requirements. However, this is not a definitive rule and we consider each applicant on their own merit, so you are still welcome to apply. We do however expect a minimum 6 month commitment, so if you are just on a working holiday this is not the place for you.
Whilst we admire your hustle, unfortunately we require all of our tutors to have graduated from high school to work with us. Please visit us again once you finish year 12!
The answer is probably yes – we have students all the way from the Central Coast to Campbelltown, Pittwater to Penrith. However there are naturally busier areas than others, so if you happen to be in a very quiet area we may place your application on hold until the demand for your services are needed – we don’t want to bring you on and not have any students for you. We still encourage you to apply and if this is the case we can discuss when this happens.
Yes! As long as you meet our criteria above, you are welcome to apply. If successful you will go through our comprehensive on-boarding and training, and you will have a number of one on one mentor sessions ahead of your first session. With our training and resources, you should be able to go in to your first session like a seasoned veteran!
