The best tutors.
Learnmate provides a platform to find trusted individuals you want to learn from. Our community consists of high achievers, highly experienced teachers and professionals who have conquered a subject or domain and can help you achieve your learning goals.
Whether you're after a tutor who was a high achiever in school, a qualified teacher, a coaching professional or simply an expert in their domain, there's someone for everyone on Learnmate.
Affordable and fairly priced
Tutors and coaches set their own hourly rates on Learnmate based on their experience, qualifications and overall service. With over 600+ tutors on Learnmate, there is an affordable tutor available for every household budget.
On average, tutors and coaches are up to 50% cheaper than tutors and coaches engaged through agencies and other companies. Why? The simple answer is Learnmate takes less with an industry leading commission structure. Agencies and companies typically take a margin of between 40-65% from tutors while Learnmate's commission ranges between only 23-30%. That simply means less is passed onto you.
Simply and effortlessly succeed and save with a Learnmate.
Our tutoring community is made up of tutors and coaches from many different walks of life but all have one thing in common: they have a passion for teaching and want to leverage and share their expertise, knowledge, skills, tricks and prior success to help you achieve your potential and succeed faster.
From qualified teachers and professionals who have mastered their field, to recent graduates and aspiring neurosurgeons, doctors, lawyers, engineers, mathematicians, data scientists, web developers and future leaders, every tutor on Learnmate is unique.
One of the best parts about Learnmate is that you have complete freedom to review any tutor's profile, including their experience, achievements, pricing and subjects tutored. This means you pick who you want to learn from or partner with, have complete transparency who is teaching you or your kids and can be confident you're getting value for money.

Additionally, all tutors and coaches are required to maintain a current Working with Children Check to work with students under the age of 18 in Australia. Please ensure you ask to see and verify your tutor's Working with Children Check prior to engaging any tutor for students under the age of 18.

Tutors choose where and how they tutor - some will tutor online and in-person and some may only do one or the other. You can use Learnmate's filters located on the left hand side of your search (if you can't see it, press the little green tab) to see if there are tutors near you.
The availability of in-person tutoring will depend on your location and particular need. As tutors have spent the last few years learning and teaching online, we're confident they have mastered teaching online and can be just as effective as if they were in-person.
Option 1. Contact tutors
Once you have found a tutor or coach that you want to work with, click 'Contact tutor' on their profile to reach out to the tutor directly. Discuss your requirements with the tutor, ask questions about their experience, availability and rates and decide if you want to proceed to lessons. If you do, and your tutor is available at a suitable time, ask them to schedule lessons in; you will receive notifications when lessons are booked and they will start to appear in your calendar on Learnmate.
Option 2. Request a lesson
Alternatively, you can request a lesson directly from a tutor by clicking 'Request lesson' on a tutor's profile and provide your tutoring requirements, desired day and times for a lesson.
If you are looking to request an in-person lesson, make sure your tutor is in your area by using Learnmate's advanced location filter. To increase the likelihood your tutor can fit you in, we suggest that you request for your first lesson to be online.
If your tutor is available, they will schedule in your lesson and you will be notified once it is booked in your calendar on Learnmate.

If you're engaging a tutor for a school student, the answer will depend on the student’s specific needs, current level and goals.
Evidence for Learning (2020) believe that optimum impact is achieved in one-to-one tutoring where short (roughly 30 minute) regular lessons are completed 3-5 times per week (i.e. 1.5-2.5 hours per week) over a set period of time. Our data suggests this is most suitable for younger and primary school tuition, whereas Year 11-12 tuition tends to be longer (1-1.5 hours) lessons and should occur 1-2 times per week.
