It is completely free to have an account on Learnmate and list your tutoring services. Learnmate works on a commission basis, so you only pay Learnmate if you get paid by students for lessons.
We charge a market leading commission of between 23-30% depending on whether you have a Bronze, Silver, Gold or Pro tier on Learnmate. Tiers are the incentive and reward program on Learnmate.
For comparison, other platforms and tutoring organisations take between 34-70% (!) of your hard earned cash, which simply doesn't sit right with us.

"Excellent opportunities for students to reach out to you." Learnmate functions in a way that provides excellent opportunities for students to reach out to you (instead of being allocated students) this usually results in a better pairing. BEN, TUTOR
We continually invest in Learnmate's platform to ensure we're providing a leading and world class experience for all of our users. Building a platform of Learnmate's ilk costs... a lot.
Employing staff to maintain Learnmate’s platform and provide quality support to our community is one of our biggest expenses. This forms part of our commitment to providing an elite experience for our community.
Marketing is one of Learnmate's main expenses and is critical to grow awareness of Learnmate, generate interest for tutors and to find amazing tutors to join our community. A strong brand and word of mouth only get you so far.
