In order to ensure high quality tutors to our clients, we do place certain requirements on new LearnMate tutors. Please visit the registration page to view all requirements needed to be approved for an application.
Your LearnMate online profile is your own unique LearnMate page which will be indexed on search engines as well as having a direct link to the Meet Our Tutors page. This will be where most students and parents will be able to get to know you, your credentials and personality. Be sure to include you hobbies and personal interest in your profile content!
Your online profile will be set up by LearnMate after approval of your application. We will ask for any content about you that will be included in your online profile.
If you are unsure as to how to write content for your online profile, then refer to the LearnMate Tutor Training Course which will teach you how to write a compelling and insightful advertisement!
In order to ensure systematic consistency on the LearnMate site, we require all tutors to record/log their lessons on the LearnMate account after each lesson occurs.
All you need to do is login and click on ‘Calendar’ in the top navigation bar. Then in the drop down box, you simply need to click ‘Add Lessons’ and fill in the relevant details such as time, date of lesson, costs, lesson notes and lesson feedback to parents (if applicable).
After you submit your lesson, we will then send the invoice to the parent, who will then pay the outstanding invoice. SEE THE COMPLETE INSTRUCTIONS HERE.
All payments from clients are done through automatic credit card processing. Please inform your clients that their credit card on file will be debited after the lesson occurs.
Tutors must not collect cash or bank transfer, or any other payment method, from their clients as this is against our terms and conditions and will result in termination.
Tutors are paid every Tuesday morning for lessons from the previous weeks/months up until 12am of that Tuesday morning, provided you mark all of your scheduled lessons as attended.
You can see an example of the payment instructions clients receive when they join LearnMate to request tutoring services from you (just for your own knowledge).
Unfortunately, due to security and administration issues, LearnMate cannot allow its tutors to accept cash from parents. Should a client offer you cash, please politely decline and refer them to LearnMate.
LearnMate has a reliability policy in place to ensure that all tutors and students are treated fairly.
This reliability policy aims to eradicate the issue of tutors leaving their students either after the first lesson with a new student, or after a few lessons, or after a large number of lessons: without a truly valid reason. Being ‘busy with exams’ or ‘having too much on your plate’ is not a valid excuse for leaving a student at such short notice. When a tutor begins with a student, this is a commitment to their success in their studies.
LearnMate gives complete freedom to its tutors. You can choose how much to charge clients per hour and what is fair for your time. Unlike other tutoring agencies, LearnMate does not impose a set hourly rate.
Your hourly rate will be displayed on your LearnMate online profile for all clients to see.
If you are having trouble working out how much to charge per hour, then please contact us and we will advise a suitable hourly rate based on your experience and qualifications.
To let us know of your payment details, you need to simply login to your account and under the ‘Profile’ tab, you need to click ‘Edit’ and then you can add it under ‘additional details’.
We will also ask for your details after your application has been approved, and we will insert it into the system at that time. Tutors are paid every Tuesday morning for lessons from the previous weeks up until 12am of that Tuesday morning, provided you mark all of your lessons as attended.
Note: your details are kept 100% on our server and are protected by a 128 bit SSL secure server.
The LearnMate Online Training Course is a unique training platform developed by LearnMate specifically for the VCE tutor. It takes into account the founder’s own personal experience, having built his own tutoring clientele to 25 students per week.
LearnMate will concisely cover the following topics:
How to write an effective advertisement for your LearnMate profile
How to communicate effectively
How to develop strong people skills
How to organise your notes and appointments
How to prepare for each lesson and how to follow up with student
How to develop presales call techniques
And so much more!
All for free! There is never any cost for LearnMate tutors to partake in this online training. It’s all part of our commitment to ensure 100% quality and satisfaction to our clients.
This welcome sheet during your first lesson with a new student will now be compulsory for all new inexperience tutors to the site. Experienced tutors and those who have been with LearnMate for a while will not be required to use it (but we recommend it!).
LearnMate provides an online form for students to fill out after the first lesson. This link is also publicised in the invoice email sent to clients and is regularly sent out in mass email communications. This link can be found here.
Alternatively, you may decide to download a feedback form provided by LearnMate and print it out. From there, you’ll be able to hand this to your students so they can fill it out in their own time and give it back to you. You can download it here.
All hours have a 27.5% commission levied on them, which is all explained in our bypassing prevention agreement upon induction! Learn more here.
With the commission also comes PROTECTION of your payment. With LearnMate, as we securely store our customers’ credit cards on file, you’re guaranteed to be paid when a lesson occurs, so you never have to worry about chasing up payments from student or parent! If you choose to go direct with a student, you lose protection that LearnMate provides in ensuring you’re paid and so you will be at the discretion of a client to pay you.

LearnMate considered and appreciated the characteristics and nature of the tutor requested and worked well with me to align my Yr11 child with a suitable tutor. They are getting along very well and the tutoring is having a marked effect on the approach to work. We look forward to seeing the improved assessment performance in line with the capability and confidence boost.
Easy to use site, and easy to find and book a tutor. My daughter enjoyed working with her maths methods tutor, concentrating on areas that needed to be worked on as well as learning tips that she had not been shown in the school classroom.
I am very happy with Mikhail from LearnMate. We were choosing a tutor for our daughter, who is a primary school student struggling with phonics and reading. He is wonderful, with lovely manners and has established a good relationship in a short time . My daughter enjoys and looks forward to her private lessons. She actually started to read and it seems that she is enjoying the reading now.
We are very pleased with choosing LearnMate. The tutor we chose for my daughter is wonderful and has a lovely manner and has established a good rapport in a short space of time . My daughter enjoys and looks forward to her private lessons .
My primary school son has responded well to receiving online tutoring sessions, possible more receptive than in person. The tutor has helped to extend his writing whilst keeping him focused during the 1 hour session.
My sister in law introduced me to LearnMate and I couldn't thank her enough. LearnMate has found us an excellent tutor to hep my son with his Biology. LearnMate has made the process of finding a tutor very easy but at the same time making sure that they provide the best quality of tutors. My son's tutor, Peta, has helped him gain his confidence with his Biology as well as great school results.
Great tutor, who has improved my daughters understanding of Maths immensely. My daughter has gone from not being confident with her maths to passing every exam she has sat and is improving all the time. Highly recommended. Value for money and very convenient, with lessons taking place in a library or even at your home if you wish. Highly recommended.
This website provides a great and place for students to get in contact with tutors as provides a range of tutors for the students to sort through so they can find one that best suits their needs. LearnMate is a great place to work as they take care of both the students and tutors very well incentivising their tutors to work more productively.
The tutors that we have are really helpful. They all know what they're doing and willing to assist anytime outside of tutoring hours, via email. So far our kids are very happy with their tutors from LearnMate.
Simple and easy process. From sign up to allocating a tutor to eventually undertaking the classes with the selected tutor, the whole experience had been seamless and stress free. Our daughter has grown in confidence with the chosen subject and seems to be be improving week on week. Thank you LearnMate tutoring. Proven to be the right decision in the end.
This website comes in quite handy when you don't know who to approach for help with tutoring your child. My daughter is pretty happy with the tutor I found through learnmate. You are doing a great job guys!
LearnMate is so easy to use. Whether searching and finding a suitable tutor, to requesting/scheduling sessions. I do like that I don't have to handle the payment side and it's managed by LearnMate. Would recommend to family & friends...in fact I have.
Our first lesson with Elizabeth was fantastic - my daughter was so comfortable with her & had nothing but good to say about her tutor & the lesson that was given - we are both very pleased & looking forward to the next lessons Thank youKind regards Fiona
We have found an amazing Tutor. My son is in year 11 and his tutor was able to build rapport with him and make him feel comfortable asking questions and reviewing his work. The LearnMate site is easy to use and very professional.
Great idea for a service. Completely legit and very easy, everything is done for you (payment and matching to tutors based on subject and area) and all there is to worry about is organising a time. Have and would definitely recommend.
We are very impressed with Michael's professionalism and also his work ethic in tutoring our son in for Year 12 VCE. He has already made a difference early on. We look forward to his positive role in furthering our son's abilities across his final year. We highly recommend LearnMate.
It was really easy to locate the tutors in our area, and view their profile. We then selected the one that seemed the best fit, and made all the arrangements, including billing through the app. A very simple process.
Easy to access quality tutors- teenagers reviewed profiles and identified who they thought would suit them- received a text and first appointment was arranged and our Tutor was simply fantastic ! very happy students!
Our tutor Megan is always on time to start with. She has worked with our (3) eldest children, being in Grade 6, Year 8 & 9 respectively. Megan has assisted our eldest with her maths 'blockage' to rise from a D grade in late Year 8 to achieving Bs and As mid way thru Year 9.
Great service and high quality tutors. Staff are always on hand to help with any issues. Highly recommend using LearnMate if you are looking for tutors to help you improve your learning or get to the next level!
We are very happy with the tutor's knowledge, ability to explain a concept and teach and the enthusiasm. Having discovered Learn Mate I would always choose to use them in the future over other companies.
We had an amazing tutor (Christine Zhong) come to our home and helped my daughter to understand some complicated material. She was passionate about getting her to understand the material and was very easy for my daughter to relate to. I was so thankful that LearnMate’s fees are so reasonable and I am now able to afford ongoing tutoring for her. They also have discount packages.
Needed quick help just a few days before my son's exams, contacted Learnmate. We got immediately response. Same day in just few hours, everything was arranged, we had a tutor next day. Our tutor was professional, polite, kind and have the knowledge about how to do the tutoring and to get my son interested and listen to him. I can highly recommend this service.
Probably the best tutoring service on the market. Looked up a tutor and within 3 hours I was confirmed with that tutor I wanted and had a booking for the very next day. Made life so much easier, and cheaper as well with direct debit and not having to line the pockets of the "big" tutoring centres. A+ experience with LearnMate
Very professional Teacher. Have been wasting time and money last 4 years in the Tuition Centres. Just used Learnmate Tutor one to one and found that the system is very efficient, tutor is highly knowledgeable and our child is so happy to go for the lessons unlike earlier our child never interested to go for tuition centre. Hats off to LearnMate Tutoring
