Here’s what some of our online tutors say about Cluey


University Student

Working at Cluey is absolutely incredible. Not only is it such an amazing environment to work in, it feels like every day we’re moving as a team to achieve our goals to improve the learning of bright young minds - one student at a time.


University Student

Cluey Learning is a welcoming environment that supports tutors such as myself to develop their own skills while making learning for students fun and convenient. Cluey Learning provides me with a wide range of resources to help me cater to students of all ages and skill levels. Working at Cluey Learning has been a satisfying experience, and its flexibility has allowed me to efficiently balance my work and university life!


University Student

Working at Cluey has been an incredible experience. It has been a fantastic opportunity for me to hone my skills as an educator and an academic. My favourite part of working at Cluey is building relationships with my students and watching them grow. I love seeing students' confidence levels rise and their enthusiasm for learning blossom. To work at Cluey means to be a part of a community of learners and educators, to be supported and respected.



Working at Cluey is a great fit for me. Since I had my first child I have been unable to return to teaching due to a lack of childcare in my area. Cluey offered what I was looking for - an Australian based company with a good hourly rate and flexible working conditions. Cluey also provides ongoing professional development, something that was not an option with other companies. The tech support is very good and friendly! If you are looking for a professional online tutoring role, they are a great option.



Working with different students is one of the best things about Cluey Learning. The online learning platform is easy to use and I am able to see first hand the growth of my students as we progress through the content. Each week I look forward to talking with my students, seeing how they are going at school and identifying the best way I can help them during the session to achieve their best.



Cluey Learning provides me with an exciting opportunity to present engaging, highly organised content in a way that speaks to students as individuals, and as learners. I believe that a positive relationship is the foundation of education, and Cluey excels in providing that environment. It’s encouraging to be involved with a group that really cares!



Cluey is an amazing environment to work in. The platform is highly professional and links to the New Zealand Curriculum well. The best part is the one-on-one time you spend with the children, something which is not always possible in a crowded classroom. You can see each of your students grow, which gives me great pride. You also meet different children and learn about their lives. You build amazing relationships with the students which you begin to treasure.


University Student

Working at Cluey Learning allows me to share my passion for reading and writing with budding young learners and refine my skills as a Masters student in Speech Pathology. The best part is seeing a student experience a “light-bulb” moment - they begin to understand something that felt so incredibly difficult to comprehend before.


University Student

Cluey is a platform for students and tutors to interact in the comfort of their home. It is an innovative idea and allows both students and tutors to interact without the need for travelling which can be complicated for young students or university tutors.
