About The LearnMate Summer Meetup

This is the perfect opportunity to learn the tips and tricks of the trade to becoming an amazing tutor. You will not be disappointed – with a focus on both professional and company development, you’ll be able to learn exactly how to become a successful tutor.


So what exactly is this ‘Summer Meetup in Sydney’?

Good question! The main purposes for this meet up are:
1. Professional Development

2. Company Development

Professional Development:

  • I will aim to get some very experienced tutors to come along and provide their knowledge on how to tackle common issues in tutoring as well as how to become a better communicator, motivator and mentor.
  • I will also present based on my personal experience all of the common issues I’ve faced and how I’ve dealt with it.
  • You will also get a chance to meet up with tutors for similar subjects (e.g. if you teach Biology you can chat to another tutor who teaches Biology) – this will prove to be an invaluable experience to gain insight into how other tutors conduct their lessons.
  • You’ll have time during lunch break (with free Subway) to talk to other tutors!
  • You’ll be provided with worksheets, documents and general discussion so as to remain on track with what will be occurring. See images below as an example of what you’d be getting to fill in / discuss. You’ll be able to break up into small groups and do some group activities (e.g. solving common problems involving students etc).
  • As you’ll be discussing with other tutors about areas of improvement and opportunity, you’ll begin to take in all the ideas to improve yourself!
  • Towards the end of the meetup, Dmitri will convene everyone together and we will discuss the major takeaways from the meetup.
  • Dmitri will also present all of his tutoring experience and engage in group discussion with all tutors.

Company Development:

  • My vision is to make LearnMate Australia’s largest and to knock out some of the giants. I’d love to hear about any feedback you have about our systems, how we can improve the company processes and culture etc.
  • You’ll be able to network with similar and like-minded tutors and forge friendships. I have seen tutors become friends with each other simply by attending our past meetups.

You’ll be provided with notes and resources on all of the tips and tricks provided during the workshop in a nice neat folder!

I’ll be providing snacks, drinks and some food, but I will aim to end at 3pm just in time for lunch at the place. Subway will be provided free of charge 🙂 How can you go wrong with free Subway!?

This will be held on Saturday 3rd of February, as I figured if it were to be held any later then it would cause some scheduling issues with lessons as student will still be on holidays at that time. It also ensure we get a break in January, so if you’re still in Sydney I would love to see you there. Please arrive at 12pm and we will finish by 3pm in time for a late lunch.

If you’d like to attend, please click here. Both current and new LearnMate tutors are welcome to attend. If you’d like to bring a friend along to introduce them to the company, then by all means feel free to – please just ask me first.

I look forward to seeing you there! 🙂

This meetup is presented by Dmitri Dalla-Riva, an experienced VCE English Language tutor and workshop presenter, as well as owner of LearnMate tutoring. 

Hey guys!

It’s Dmitri here from LearnMate Tutoring. Over the past 2.5 years, LearnMate has grown from 0 to over 500 tutors and part of this growth has been fuelled by my desire to better society. I believe we’re on the right path to doing really great things and I want to continue to build on this vision. Helping people – both tutors and students alike, is my mission.

I would love to take this opportunity to meet you if we haven’t met before, and get to know you better. If you know that you’ll be tutoring for some time and want to improve on your tutoring skills and the company, then feel free to come along ????

I look forward to seeing you there and getting to know you personally!

Kind Regards,


The Structure of The Day (Chronological Order)

– Generally, there is no limit. However, judging by past experience, the workshop gets fully booked out a few days before the payment deadline. So, I would recommend not waiting until the last minute to purchase!

Yes, on the day you’ll be provided with all notes in a neat booklet. All other notes will be sent digitally to you at the end of the meetup. Over the past year I have created some amazing documents and I want you to have access to all of this. 

If you’re unable to attend for whatever reason (that’s okay!), I will be sure to give you access to all notes electronically. I am thinking of also recording the meetup to put up online exclusive to LearnMate tutors.

Yes! A free Subway lunch will be provided at the end of the Meetup – around 1:30pm. Make sure you advise me of any allergies or special dietary requirements so I can order you your own Subway.

Testimonials from LearnMate Tutors…

  • 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!

    Penny H – Current LearnMate Tutor
  • 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!

    Camilla E – Current LearnMate Tutor
  • LearnMate has definitely helped me connect with students who are passionate about learning. The diversity that LearnMate provides makes our job even more rewarding!

    Violet S – Current LearnMate Tutor
  • 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.
