"The key is identifying those in need, analysing how to help and delivering solutions directly to them"

Our Story

Need a Tutor™ is an online tutoring platform connecting teachers and tutors with students through our real time, live video and audio proprietary technology. We provide educational support for Indigenous, remote, isolated or disadvantaged individuals.

There is huge inequity in availability for effective learning support programs for our Indigenous, remote and disadvantaged individuals and students, and a plethora of online tutoring platforms targeted at the privileged and resourced.

We are proud of our Social Impact Tutoring programs.

Aimed exclusively at strengthening the learning capacity of each individual through connectedness and by harnessing the power of technology, we created our proprietary collaborative online learning environment in 2017.

We have grown our network of tutors, teachers and communities, through partnerships with foundations and organisations and we do our utmost to access the most remote individuals, Indigenous schools and communities.

Most recently, we launched our tutoring support to at-risk Cambodian girls utilising our world-class Australian tutors.

The Need a Tutor™ platform development and launch in 2017 was 100% funded by our Founders. We are now supported by various Charities, Foundations and CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) plans and school equity funding.
We receive no government assistance.

We know that learning changes lives and we are determined to remove barriers preventing Indigenous remote and disadvantaged students from accessing quality educational support.

Proudly sustainable and eco friendly producing no waste, negligible carbon emissions and no environmental footprint.

* All profits from Need a Tutor™ are redirected into subsidising Indigenous and rural education in Australia and providing free tutoring to at-risk girls in remote Cambodia.
