My son has been tutored by Caitlin Rochfort for vce Unit 3/4 software development and we have found her to be extremely knowledgeable and highly skilled in her craft. She is patient and understanding of the challenges students face in this subject and we would thoroughly recommend using Caitlin as she is an outstanding tutor. My son has gained so much and become passionate about this subject through Caitlin’s guidance.

Trying to tackle year 11 maths methods was very challenging for my son. Sukhraj approach was very professional. Explained topics well with examples and asked questions to ensure that my son really understood what was taught. Gave some assignment for practice after the tuition. Ensured us that he's available by phone and email if we need further clarification. Highly recommended.

Our year 10 daughter is being tutored by Courtney Love and she is fantastic. Enthusiastic, engaging, warm, friendly, and super smart. She has already helped our daughter enormously, and we will continue to use her services for as long as our daughter needs some extra help. We highly recommend her.

Our mission is simple: to provide professional, engaging and enthusiastic in-person and online primary school, high school, HSC, SACE, BSSS, QCE, TASC, 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.

All LearnMate tutors are also trained and verified for your benefit. Click here to learn more about this process.

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 hereYou can search for an in-person or online tutor.

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 their home that are not near their residence (such as the State library).

Alternatively, to view a complete list of all tutors for all primary school, high school, HSC, SACE, BSSS, QCE, TASC, 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.

All of our tutors also offer Skype/Zoom tutoring for long distance students, or those who can’t find a local tutor! You can learn more about that 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 primary school, high school, HSC, SACE, BSSS, QCE, TASC, WACE & VCE subjects such as maths, English, foreign languages and humanities. LearnMate also gives you the option to request lessons in-person or online! 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!
