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

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.

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.

Our mission is simple: to provide professional, engaging and enthusiastic high school, HSC, IB, BSSS, QCE, SACE, TCE, WACE & VCE tutors to students, while also ensuring the student feels empowered and confident during their assessments! Our tutors are all about inciting a greater level of inquisitiveness and independence in the student to ensure they can complete their own assessments independently. Ultimately, our goal is to empower students all over Australia to achieve amazing results and make their dreams come true!

In addition, all of our tutors are matched with students not only on study score but also on interests and suitability. We believe it’s important that the student and tutor have a good social rapport, as this is what fosters a comfortable environment in which the student can ask the tutor questions. Our tutors are also trained via our comprehensive online tutor training course, provided to all new tutors upon induction.

Our tutors are about getting great results. Getting results for the student is directly related to the tutor’s content knowledge (their study score), their ability to communicate effectively, and their ability to build a relationship with the student founded on trust and interests. Being a great tutor is not only about the study score, but how well the tutor interacts and engages with the student.

Firstly, start by conducting an online search here.

Once you've found a suitable tutor, simply click on the enquire button at the bottom of the tutor's profile page. If you can't find a suitable tutor after conducting an online search, then please contact us directly and we will do the hard work for you and find a suitable tutor. Please note that some tutors conduct lessons in multiple locations around your city that are not near their residence (such as the State library).

Alternatively, to view a complete list of all tutors for all high school, HSC, IB, BSSS, QCE, SACE, TCE, WACE & VCE subjects, please go here.

To fill out an enquiry form to contact us directly about a tutor or for us to help find one for you, please go here.

You are never committed to any tutor for any period of time.

All LearnMate tutors are knowledgeable in their respective field and have the study score to back up their knowledge and expertise. Each of our tutors have perfected their subject and have a wealth of knowledge to pass onto the student!

All tutor's credentials (their study scores) are verified by LearnMate against online databases, which are publicly available. We also ensure that all tutors have a valid Working With Children Check, which ensures that adults can work with minors. If tutors do not satisfy these two minimal requirements, then they are not considered for positions.

LearnMate was founded by Dmitri Dalla-Riva, a former VCE English Language tutor from Melbourne, who couldn't keep up with demand. You can read more about his story here.

LearnMate tutors teach a variety of different high school, HSC, IB, BSSS, QCE, SACE, TCE, WACE & VCE subjects such as maths, English, foreign languages and humanities. To see a complete list of all tutors for all high school, HSC, IB, BSSS, QCE, SACE, TCE, WACE & VCE subjects, please contact an online search here. Or, if you’d like to conduct an online search via our searchable map, then please go here.

Our tutors are handpicked based on their study score, ability to be trained, their commitment and work ethic, and their availability and punctuality.

We also conduct phone and Skype interviews prior to accepting a LearnMate tutor.

All of our tutors are given the opportunity to pass through our online tutor training course, which has been specifically created by LearnMate to ensure 100% satisfaction for our clients.

The online tutor training course is 25 lectures long and also includes tests and quizzes to assess their knowledge. The course also covers content such as the various learning styles of students, how to communicate effectively and how to develop strong people skills.

Paying a LearnMate tutor is incredibly easy!

Our customers choose automatic credit or debit card processing for the lessons with their tutor.

We will take care of the invoice payment by automatically charging the nominated debit/credit card 48 hours after the lesson is completed by your tutor. You will never be charged until after a lesson is completed – simply set and forget and we will take care of the payment. An email notification will be sent to you once payment has been charged on your card.

Your credit card will ONLY be charged if the tutor marks the lesson as ‘attended’ in our system, otherwise the card will not be charged, and you will not be invoiced, giving you assurance that charges will only occur if the lesson does in fact happen.

To activate this, simply click here to login into your online account – go to the ‘Billing’ tab at the top of the page, and click on ‘Credit Cards’. You’ll then be able to add a nominated credit card or debit card securely from there. If you need help, please contact us here.

We accept Visa, Master and AMEX. Payments are processed securely and safely through Stripe, one of the world’s trusted and most secure online payment processors.

What are the benefits for you?

  1. There’s no need to manually pay invoices saving you much needed time!
  2. You don’t have to worry about forgetting to pay your tutor every again!
  3. Your credit card will only be charged after the lesson occurs!
  4. You will be able to keep track of all of your payments in your online account!

Please read more about our payment policy and security policy here: https://learnmate.com.au/payment-policy/

Tutors are matched with students based on a variety of factors:

  • Distance to the student’s home or vice versa
  • The tutor’s study score
  • The tutor’s experience
  • The tutor’s individual hobbies and interests
  • The student’s learning style (visual, auditory, kinesthetic)
  • The student’s academic ability in the given subject
  • Level of social rapport between the student and tutor

Our tutors are about getting great results. Getting results for the student is directly related to the tutor’s content knowledge (their study score), their ability to communicate effectively, and their ability to build a relationship with the student founded on trust and interests. Being a great tutor is not only about the study score, but how well the tutor interacts and engages with the student.

A LearnMate online account is provided to both students/parents and tutors. For students/parents the benefits are numerous:

  • Pay your invoices online via credit card, PayPal or bank transfer
  • View past lessons and the respective charges
  • View lesson notes and direct feedback from the tutor
  • Update your contact and payment info
  • Schedule in lessons with the tutor via a calendar function
