Our mission is simple: to provide professional, engaging and enthusiastic high school and HSC, IB, QCE, BSSS, SACE, TCE, WACE & VCE tutors to students, while also ensuring the student feels empowered and confident during their assessments! Ultimately, our goal is to empower students all over Australia to achieve amazing results and make their dreams come true! 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. LearnMate makes the process of hiring and paying a tutor as seamless and painless as possible. All of our tutors are provided with online training to ensure 100% satisfaction and results!

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.

Did you know? The best results for students are almost always produced over an extended period of time, so making sure you plan tutoring well in advance for either yourself or your child is very important.

Our Vision for the Future

Our vision is simple. To be active in all Australian states by the end of 2019, with a major focus on providing the highest quality tutoring around for high school & primary school students.

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.

LearnMate provides you with tailored, one-on-one lessons for tutoring in a variety of suburbs in MelbourneSydneyGeelongBrisbaneHobartCanberraPerth & Adelaide!

With hundreds of tutors on the LearnMate platform, you're bound to find someone local for any high school level: year 7, year 8, year 9, year 10, year 11 or year 12! You can choose to have lessons in-person or online – whatever is easiest for you!

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 naturally 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 hundreds of tutors in a number of capital cities, I look forward to helping you achieve your goals.

Our tutors are also trained via our comprehensive online tutor training course, provided to all new tutors upon induction.

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.

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

Other payment options are available.

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, PayPal or bank transfer
  • View past lessons and the respective charges
  • View lesson notes and direct feedback from the tutor

  • Schedule in lessons with the tutor via a calendar function
  • And so much more!

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 tutors can serve you in the best way possible; whether that be a Year 7 student right up until Year 12!
