My student just messaged me that she was crying because of her English Sac result. I immediately prepared to console her until she dropped the bomb that she got her first ever B+!! She's only ever averaged D's and occasional C's, so she's absolutely over the moon. Just thought I'd let you know about this improvement. I'd also just like to say thank you for hiring me haha. Her excitement and joy at this amazing grade made me so so happy I can't even describe it. My hard work has paid off, and hers certainly has too. Ahh I'm so happy. This is why I tutor; to see their excitement and happiness when they improve.
LearnMate Tutoring has been a fantastic experience, and given me the opportunity to grow my student portfolio. It has enabled me to meet many different students from different schools, areas and abilities. With LearnMate taking care of all my advertising, and the easy session logging using the website, it is a very clean, efficient way of managing students and sessions. It's a privilege to be part of the organisation.
LearnMate has improved my tutoring business considerably. Along with providing new clients, the LearnMate website has aided me in organising my schedule and broadening the my online presence. The site is user-friendly and allows tutors control over where and when they work.
LearnMate has been wonderful with providing training and opportunities which have helped me build my professional repertoire and extend my tutoring skills. This has been a wonderful experience and I've had the opportunity to work with bright, capable VCE students independently while receiving support from Dmitri who has been both communicative and very friendly.
Being a tutor at LearnMate has given me the skills to refine and enhance my teaching methods so as to ensure that each student is truly reaching their potential! The guidance and support from the LearnMate community creates a unique space whereby everyone is engaged with the latest VCE study plans!
During my time as a tutor at LearnMate, I have felt privileged to be able to work with and help a wonderfully diverse array of students in achieving their VCE goals through such a great organisation. Without Dmitri's continual support and communication, I feel that my progress as a tutor would have been harder to achieve. I've found this experience fulfilling and enjoyable. It's fantastic to see my students reach their potential!
LearnMate has definitely helped me connect with students who are passionate about learning. The diversity that LearnMate provides makes our job even more rewarding!
LearnMate tutoring is a great agency for tutors to gain access to a diverse range of students. One of the best things about being part of this organisation is that I not only get to help the students that I tutor personally, but also other students as well through the LearnMate blog, where we as tutors are able to write up tips to help students succeed in their VCE.
Being part of LearnMate has offered me a great opportunity to combine two things that I love – learning and teaching – into a job that will both support me throughout my university years, and help me to gain valuable experience in dealing with clients, preparing lessons and resources, and conveying information in a way that appeals to all kinds of learners. LearnMate’s owner, Dmitri, has also been highly supportive and has helped me to establish a vast clientèle conveniently based around my local area. I am very glad that I seized this chance to become a VCE tutor. Thanks LearnMate!
LearnMate has been an incredibly supportive employer, I have learned a lot under Dmitri and the team's friendly and professional guidance. I started off with no tutoring experience and now can write lesson plans, communicate with students and tutor them at the drop of a hat. Working with LearnMate has made me much more employable as a tutor and helped further my career goals for teaching. The website for tutors makes organising lessons and communicating with students so easy, and having that structure made learning how to be a professional and organised tutor my primary focus. I can't speak highly enough of Dmitri and the team's commitment to supporting each tutor to the best of their ability, handling small and large questions and issues with ease. I'd recommend LearnMate to potential students and tutors alike.
LearnMate strives to provide excellent tutors to our students, so to ensure this happens we provide online training to you for free! LearnMate will teach you how to write an advertisement for your profile, how to set up the legal aspects of your business, how to determine your hourly charge, how to prepare lesson plans for each lesson, how to tailor your teaching to the student’s learning style, how to answer calls from students and so much more!
Part of our bigger mission here at LearnMate is ensuring that everyone can get access to education if they need it. LearnMate and Ronald McDonald House Charities Australia have partnered together to support young people who are seriously ill in a charitable capacity. We call this program LearnMate Mission. When you join LearnMate, you’ll be provided with the opportunity to join this program if you wish and join over 60 tutors who are part of this program.
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 students or parents!
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. LearnMate will then pay you your earnings every week, minus LearnMate’s 25% commission.
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’s three other payment methods: credit card, PayPal and bank transfer.
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.
The LearnMate Online Training Course is a unique training platform developed by LearnMate specifically for high school tutors. It takes into account the founder’s own personal experience, having built his own tutoring clientele to 25 students per week.

There is a flat 27.5% commission on all hours worked, which is outlined in a document provided to tutors 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.
