Hi there! My name is Dmitri and I have been in the VCE tutoring industry for some time now. After finishing at Scotch College in 2012, I decided to become a VCE English Language tutor as my brother’s friend needed help in the subject. I attained a study score of 45 in 2012, so I thought that naturally I would be suited to helping my brother’s friend with VCE English Language. After my first lesson, I was hooked. Unlike many other jobs that high school graduates get after year 12, tutoring can be incredibly satisfying and a ton of fun. Shortly thereafter, I couldn’t keep up with demand and managed to amass a regular client base of 25 students per week. I got to the point where I was turning away students, and of course that didn’t sit right with me. That’s when LearnMate was born. As a current VCE tutor, I understand how it’s not always about the study score, but rather how well the tutor can communicate effectively and build a relationship with the student. I understand how important it is to build a social rapport with the student and foster a comfortable learning environment. All of our tutors are matched with students not only on study score but also on interests and suitability. All of our tutors also pass a verification and screening process so you know you’re getting a qualified tutor. In addition, using all of my experience as a tutor, I provide all of our tutors with personal online training to help them help you! So, welcome to LearnMate! I hope our tutors can serve you in the best way possible.
