Tutornova was founded by Krystal Kovacs, a 10+ year tutoring veteran who has helped hundreds of students achieve academic excellence in the HSC. Starting out teaching a handful of students after graduating Year 12 with a 99.3 UAI (ATAR equivalent) in 2005, Krystal would accumulate well over 6600+ hours of tutoring. Her love for tutoring spanned her university years while completing a Double Degree in Law and Business, and so much so Krystal decided to give up a career in law to pursue tutoring as a full time profession.
Tutornova was created out of a real customer need for high quality private tutoring, without the hassle of travel. Parents and students shared a familiar story – how inconvenient and frustrating it was to search for a high quality tutor. They had tried countless tutors, including some big name tutoring colleges, only to be left disappointed by inexperienced and uncommitted tutors. Most tutors will require you to travel to them, lessons typically take place in the tutor’s spare bedroom or around your kitchen table with a stranger, and you’re restricted to tutors who live close by. So to save time and eliminate travel, Krystal began offering private lessons over video conference. And when her students’ marks improved as dramatically as those attending in-person lessons, Krystal knew that this would redefine the way that students learn.
Tutornova aims to reimagine and simplify a non-transparent, broken market through technology. The name was inspired by the cosmic explosion Supernova and the uncapped brilliance that exists within all students. Tutornova is well-positioned as Australia’s leading provider of online private tutoring and the smarter, saner and simpler way to learn from a first class tutor, no matter where you live.
