Learnmate's commission

Here's the lowdown on our commission

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.
