The answer is no—Pokémon Scarlet and Violet do not have move tutors.

How to learn more moves in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet

While each Pokémon in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet learns certain moves by leveling up, there are other ways to teach your Pokémon more moves. This is primarily through TMs and egg moves. TMs can be crafted at outdoor Pokémon Centers, while egg moves are passed down through breeding a male and female Pokémon. Without move tutors, this is the main way to learn moves outside of leveling up.

In addition to this, your Pokémon can remember moves that they have already forgotten. This is done through the Move Remember feature, which will let you teach previous moves to your Pokémon. Using all of these will expand the move set your Pokémon have.
