Vygo is a platform that makes peer-to-peer tutoring easier, cheaper and more effective.
Vygo lets students connect with experienced peers and book in-person tutoring sessions with just a few taps. Your peers know your courses, your lecturers, your assignments and your struggles; they've succeeded before you and can help you achieve your best.
Vygo exists because we care about university students and believe that we can help them get more out of their studies and uni experience.
1/4 Australian students are dropping out of university and most of us are failing courses with significant penalties. Lack of academic and financial support is a key player in these problems. In the current market, tutoring is way too expensive and not 'course specific' enough for universities students.
With our unique model Vygo can break down these barriers and provide students with the specific help they need at a rate that makes sense! Our model is based off the late and great psychologist Vygotsky, check it out!

The Vygo app is available on the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store. We're currently working in staged releases to key universities. Download the app to see if your university is currently covered, if it isn't covered just yet then register your interest and we'll be there soon!
Becoming a tutor is as easy as downloading the app and getting started! You'll be asked to enter your courses, grades, favourite locations, availability and the rate you want to get paid. After entering your details Vygo will handle your marketing,
bookings and payments so you can sit back, relax and focus on the fun stuff!
Our tutor search algorithm is based off recent tutor ratings, awards and Vygo points. The more that a tutor achieves through the Vygo marketplace, the higher up they will appear in the search ranking and they'll be more likely to be requested for sessions.
You can request a tutor through the app when you search your courses. You can also email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll see if we can source someone for you ASAP!
Tutors decide how much they would like to charge per session and a small service fee is added on top to help with our running costs.
