Every one of our English tutors at Learn&Co is hand-picked by our founder Maria Toubbe for their personal qualities. Whilst qualifications and tutoring experience will always be important, we believe that a tutor with a genuine passion for making sure their students achieve their ambitions is invaluable. As is a tutor who knows just how to bring fun into learning.

“[Tutor-student] matching is efficient – in most cases the client is presented with two or three tutors to pick from on the same day, though more unusual requests can take longer. ‘I’m recommending Maria’s services to everyone I know who needs a language tutor because she’s amazing at understanding what people need and matching students with the perfect tutor – and she’ll always find the time to talk over the phone to help wherever she can,’ said a parent, one of many who also praised the regular feedback they get about their child’s lessons.”

Learn&Co... because there’s more to English lessons than grammar and vocabulary

With Learn&Co, learning with an English tutor online or face-to-face in London means so much more than simply mastering grammar and vocabulary. Every lesson is an experience, where your tutor will share insights into UK culture and current affairs, etiquette and customs.

It’s all about enriching your knowledge of English, so you get more out of your personal encounters, your business relationships or your studies.

Our English tutors are also chosen for their specific skills in teaching non-native English students, even those at the very start of their language learning journey.

We are also lucky enough to have a number of English tuition specialists on our team who speak multiple languages. This is especially useful when there are concepts in English that don’t directly translate, and need explanation in the student’s native language. So for example, we may pair a native Mandarin student with a tutor who is fluent in both English and Mandarin.

Who We Work With

Our Four Step Process

How it Works


Discovery Meeting

An online meeting with our founder Maria to chat through your language tutoring goals and discover the best ways to reach them.

We’ll send you profiles of the tutors we believe fit your learning style so you can choose the ones you think could be the best match.


Meet the Tutors

Now it’s time for a short chat with your shortlisted tutors so you can make that final decision as to who will lead you on your learning journey.


The Journey Begins!

The exciting part! You’ll organise lessons to suit your schedule direct with your tutor. But Maria will check in regularly to make sure you’re enjoying the ride.


Tailored learning, for English lessons you’ll always look forward to

When you look forward to your English lessons, you will always get ahead so much faster. Should you choose to learn with an English tutor online, you can study in the comfort of your own home, but still engage with your English tutor as if you were face-to-face. Online learning also allows us to welcome overseas students at Learn&Co.

Learning online is a proven format we’ve been using with great success for several years, to the point where the feedback we get from our students is that they don’t want to leave once they’ve achieved their goals.

When you take English lessons with Learn&Co, you can choose to learn either one-to-one, or in a small group of no more than two or three. Whilst for some, one-on-one English lessons work best, others prefer that social feeling of learning together and sharing the experience. We also offer face-to-face lessons, but only in London and solely on a one-to-one basis.

It all comes down to what works best for you, so just let us know!

Viola was absolutely fantastic in every respect. She took my son to new levels in his comprehension and story writing, was so genuine, kind, supportive and very focused on the end game. She worked innovatively and went the extra mile to make sure he was well prepared for his exams. He got into a top London day school which was his first choice so we couldn't be more pleased.

Learn&co has superb, dedicated and gifted tutors with a meticulous approach to exam preparation. I cannot praise them highly enough. The tutor we picked worked with my sons in the month’s coming up to their A levels – and worked miracles. She has a wonderful easygoing manner and managed to engage my sons in her lessons and exercises. Thanks so much for all your help.

Guillaume has been working as a tutor with my daughter aged nine years for the last four months. I am extremely happy with his work and can say with certainty that he is a highly effective teacher. His total fluency in English and French is without question, but more importantly I have found him to be an exceptionally creative and well organised person who is innovative in his teaching methods and who makes thorough preparations for his lessons.
