Our Vision for the Future

Our vision is simple. To be active in all Australian states by the end of 2020, with a major focus on providing the highest quality tutoring around for high school & primary school students – both in-person and online.

But beyond that, we’re all about instilling confidence in our students – to help them be the best person they can possibly be and to help guide them to reach their full potential. Tutoring is a great avenue to achieve this instilment of confidence, especially when the student receives amazing marks in their assessments or the exams.

Receiving private tutoring is not just about learning the subject matter. It’s about self-confidence that is not just applicable in high school, but will also transcend a lifetime. Having an amazing tutor can make all the difference in a student’s life. We believe that tutoring is not just about receiving help in a particular subject such as Biology or English. It’s so much more than that and all of our tutors understand this. We’re here to instil confidence in our students. But why is confidence so important in school and after school? Think about it, without confidence, you certainly can’t complete your exams. With confidence, you can complete your exams independently, and use this newfound confidence to go out into the real world and know that you can accomplish great things – in whatever your passions may be. The subjects we tutor are not just valuable, but also a vital pathway to unlocking this inner confidence and appreciation.


Our Support Team

Dmitri Dalla-Riva – Founder

Hi guys! I am Dmitri, the owner and founder of LearnMate Tutoring 🙂

After finishing at Scotch College in 2012, I decided to become a VCE English Language tutor as my brother’s friend needed help in the subject. I attained a study score of 45 in 2012, so I thought that I would be suited to helping my brother’s friend with VCE English Language. After my first lesson, I was hooked. Shortly thereafter, I couldn’t keep up with demand and managed to amass a regular client base of 25 students per week. I got to the point where I was turning away students, and of course, that didn’t sit right with me. That’s when LearnMate was born. With a network of more than a thousand tutors in all major capital cities, I look forward to helping you achieve your goals.

Learn a bit about us…

Our mission is simple: to provide professional, engaging and enthusiastic primary school & high school tutors (for in-person or online lessons) to students, while also ensuring the student feels empowered and confident during their assessments! Our tutors are all about inciting a greater level of inquisitiveness and independence in the student to ensure they can complete their own assessments independently. Ultimately, our goal is to empower students all over Australia to achieve amazing results and make their dreams come true!

In addition, all of our tutors are matched with students not only on study score but also on interests and suitability. We believe it’s important that the student and tutor have a good social rapport, as this is what fosters a comfortable environment in which the student can ask the tutor questions. Our tutors are also trained via our comprehensive online tutor training course, provided to all new tutors upon induction.

Our tutors are about getting great results. Getting results for the student is directly related to the tutor’s content knowledge (their study score), their ability to communicate effectively, and their ability to build a relationship with the student founded on trust and interests. Being a great tutor is not only about the study score, but how well the tutor interacts and engages with the student.

All LearnMate tutors are also trained and verified for your benefit. Click here to learn more about this process.

LearnMate tutors teach a variety of different primary school & high school and HSC, IB, QCE, BSSS, SACE, TCE, WACE & VCE subjects such as maths, English, foreign languages and humanities. LearnMate also provides specialised tutors for a wide range of Years 7 – 10 tutors! To see a complete list of all tutors for all primary school, high school and HSC, IB, BSSS, SACE, TCE, WACE & VCE subjects, please conduct an online search via our searchable map here.

Our tutors are handpicked based on their study score, ability to be trained, their commitment and work ethic, and their availability and punctuality.

We also conduct phone and Skype interviews prior to accepting a LearnMate tutor.

All of our tutors are given the opportunity to pass through our online tutor training course, which has been specifically created by LearnMate to ensure 100% satisfaction for our clients.

The online tutor training course is 25 lectures long and also includes tests and quizzes to assess their knowledge. The course also covers content such as the various learning styles of students, how to communicate effectively and how to develop strong people skills.

Paying a LearnMate tutor is incredibly easy!

After a lesson occurs with a tutor, the tutor will login into the LearnMate online account and log/submit the lesson with us. We will then verify the details and issue an invoice to you, which you will receive via email.

Our goal is to make your LearnMate experience easy and fair, from selecting a tutor to making payment. We want to simplify the process of hiring a tutor, not make it more difficult. We understand how busy you are being either a full time student or parent, so to ensure that payment is taken care off after each lesson is completed by your tutor, we have an automated payment system available for those who can pay by credit or debit card.

Our customers choose automatic credit or debit card processing for the lessons with their tutor.

Note: no cash transactions are allowed due to security and administration issues.

Tutors are matched with students based on a variety of factors:

  • Distance to the student’s home or vice versa
  • The tutor’s study score
  • The tutor’s experience
  • The tutor’s individual hobbies and interests
  • The student’s learning style (visual, auditory, kinesthetic)
  • The student’s academic ability in the given subject
  • Level of social rapport between the student and tutor

Our tutors are about getting great results. Getting results for the student is directly related to the tutor’s content knowledge (their study score), their ability to communicate effectively, and their ability to build a relationship with the student founded on trust and interests. Being a great tutor is not only about the study score, but how well the tutor interacts and engages with the student.

A LearnMate online account is provided to both students/parents and tutors. For students/parents the benefits are numerous:

  • Pay your invoices online via credit card
  • View past lessons and the respective charges
  • View lesson notes and direct feedback from the tutor
  • Update your contact and payment info
  • Schedule in lessons with the tutor via a calendar function
  • And so much more!

If you have another question, be sure to visit our FAQ pages for both tutors and students. We’ll more than likely have your answer there.

A few words from our founder…

Hi there! My name is Dmitri and I have been in the VCE tutoring industry for some time now. After finishing at Scotch College in 2012, I decided to become a VCE English Language tutor as my brother’s friend needed help in the subject. I attained a study score of 45 in 2012, so I thought that naturally I would be suited to helping my brother’s friend with VCE English Language. After my first lesson, I was hooked. Unlike many other jobs that high school graduates get after year 12, tutoring can be incredibly satisfying and a ton of fun. Shortly thereafter, I couldn’t keep up with demand and managed to amass a regular client base of 25 students per week. I got to the point where I was turning away students, and of course that didn’t sit right with me. That’s when LearnMate was born.

As a current VCE tutor, I understand how it’s not always about the study score, but rather how well the tutor can communicate effectively and build a relationship with the student. I understand how important it is to build a social rapport with the student and foster a comfortable learning environment. All of our tutors are matched with students not only on study score but also on interests and suitability. All of our tutors also pass a verification and screening process so you know you’re getting a qualified tutor. In addition, using all of my experience as a tutor, I provide all of our tutors with personal online training to help them help you!

So, welcome to LearnMate! I hope our primary school and high school tutors can serve you in the best way possible!
