Great Tutoring Comes Down to a Great Tutor

In the past, you’d have to spend hours travelling to different tutors or have one come to you. If you weren’t stuck in bad traffic you were limited to tutors in your neighbourhood.

With online tutoring at Tutornova, you can say goodbye to average local tutors. Never miss a lesson because you can’t get there. Never settle for just anyone.

Now you can get a trusted, experienced tutor right in your home, with the convenience of online video tutoring.

Interactive 1:1 Online Face-to-face Tutoring

All you’ll need is an internet connection and a computer. From there we use LIVE video conferencing and state-of-the-art virtual classroom technology to recreate the in-person tutoring experience.

Sketch on our virtual whiteboard, record your online tutoring lesson so you never miss a thing. Track your homework and weekly to do list on your personal Student Dashboard to stay organised.

Online tutoring with Tutornova has never been easier!

“Suffering an injury in the middle of the year, I was unable to attend in-person lessons which is when I started online lessons. I was able to get more work done as I didn’t have to worry about travel. My tutor helped me achieve my best results in schooling coming first for my English speech.”

“I used to get mostly C and B range marks. After receiving private tutoring, I feel more confident in my exams and have scored A grades. My tutor knew what examiners looked for and paid extra close attention to the small details that would improve my marks and has pushed me further than I ever thought I could achieve.”

“I scored full marks 20/20 for my Mod A podcast assessment and 19/20 for my Mod B essay. By trials I had improved ranking 2nd in my grade and ranking 4th out of 109 students. I like how lessons are short but consistent, planned and well organised. Tutoring has helped me gain a better grasp of all English modules.”

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Tutornova?

Tutornova is an online private tutoring booking platform, connecting high school and university students with world-class educators throughout Australia and globally. We offer two separate memberships: online tutoring lessons and unlimited writing feedback. Subscriptions to each service are sold separately.

Why online tutoring?

Online tutoring with Tutornova is less time consuming and stressful than booking a tutor the traditional way. You don’t have to spend hours searching or being restricted to limited tutors in your local area.

At Tutornova, you get access to our trusted, experienced team of first-class academic tutors, already pre-screened and trained by us. And with the powerful interactive virtual classroom and shared digital whiteboard, it's just like sitting next to a real tutor. Best of all, you get access to the best quality tutors, all from the comfort of your home.

How do I book a tutoring lesson?

All you have to do is click Book Now, enter your details and within 60 seconds you’re on the way to getting mentored by a world-class tutor.

I've made a booking request. What happens next?

You'll immediately receive an email to let you know that we received your request. We will then contact the best tutors for your needs and see who is available. If you've mentioned additional flexible times when booking, we will consider these in case we are unable to match your booking at your preferred time.

Once we have found you a suitable tutor, you will receive a second email confirming all booking details including the date and time of your booking.

How does Tutornova screen the tutors in its network?

We’re very careful about the tutors we select to join the Tutornova network. We interview all of our tutors and make sure they hold a clear Working With Children Check and pass our 10 Point Tutor Certification Checklist. We accept only the highest quality tutors with a history of academic excellence and customer satisfaction.

How do I pick a tutor?

We will match you with the highest quality tutor available at your preferred time. If you have any specific tutor preferences, you can mention it in the comments section when booking and we will do our best to accommodate your request.

Can I rebook with the same tutor?

Absolutely! We do our best to ensure that you get the same tutor every time. After your first lesson with a Tutornova tutor, you will be given the option to re-book with the same tutor at a regular time slot.

How do I book lessons for multiple siblings or subjects?

You can make your first booking on our booking form or simply contact us and we can book lessons for you. You can book and manage your lessons by logging into your self-managed Members Account.

How does payment work?

Pay securely and automatically online only after your lesson has been completed. Say goodbye to packages and expensive term fees. With flexible, PAYG online payment of lessons, Tutornova eliminates the awkward conversations about money. You can book as many sessions as you like in advance.

PLEASE NOTE: A hold will be placed on your credit card (for authorization) for the amount of your service up to 2 days before the day of your booking. THIS HOLD IS NOT A CHARGE. Charging is completed after your service is rendered and you will receive an invoice via email once this occurs.

What equipment do I need to attend online lessons?

You will need a:

– laptop or desktop computer
– webcam
– speakers
– microphone
– headphones (optional, but recommended for best audio quality)
– reliable internet connection (home wifi is best)
digital drawing pen tablet (optional, but highly recommended for maths or science subjects to draw on our interactive virtual whiteboard)

How do I draw on the virtual whiteboard?

You can draw on the virtual whiteboard with any input device on your computer that replaces your cursor, such as a digital drawing pen tablet.

For a smooth drawing experience, we recommend the Wacom Intuos digital drawing pen tablet.

How do I share and edit documents with my tutor?

You can easily collaborate with your tutor via your Student Dashboard, where you can share Word Documents and edit documents with your tutor in real time using Google Docs. You can upload any documents and files from your computer to share with your tutor.

Can I book my tutor directly instead of through Tutornova?

Tutornova takes the stress out of booking a tutoring lesson and is able to function because of the honour system. Our service agreement actually states that you must not independently hire any past or present Tutornova tutor, regardless of whether you want to use them for a recurring or one-off service. If you enjoy our service, we hope that you will do your part in keeping our eco-system intact and exclusively book through Tutornova for all your tuition needs.

Cancellation Policy

It takes us time to find the right tutor for your needs. Because our tutors reserve your time especially for you, you may cancel or reschedule your booking for free up to 24 hours in advance.

If you cancel or reschedule with less than 24 hour’s notice, you will be charged a 50% cancellation fee. Lessons cancelled on the day will be charged the full lesson fee.

Further, for our recurring weekly or fortnightly plans, there is a minimum commitment of 3 bookings. Lessons are still charged after each individual session, but you will be required to complete 3 bookings before leaving the service.

You can cancel or reschedule by logging into your Members Account or by calling our Support Team on (02) 9758 4217.

What is your lesson 100% Happiness Guarantee?

We’re confident you’ll love our service, so we offer a lesson 100% happiness guarantee. If you’re not completely satisfied after trying our service, simply let us know within 24 hours of your lesson by emailing support@tutornova.com.au and you can request a full refund. We’ll work to make it right – guaranteed!

Student Success Stories

“It’s so much more efficient having a tutor that’s literally a click away in the comfort of your own home where you’ve got all your books around you and you’re in your own environment. I would highly recommend Tutornova to everyone, especially those who are highly ambitious and really want to achieve the top Band 6.”

“Before tutoring, I was scraping a pass in Advanced English and after a handful of lessons increased my marks by 25%! If only I could learn the proper framework for writing Band 6 responses in English I was confident I could pull up my ATAR. My tutor lived almost an hour away, so if it weren’t for private online tutoring, I wouldn’t have been able to get mentored by one of the top HSC English tutors in Sydney.”
