Our Story

We're EFL Tutors, a local academic tutoring company run by students, for students. We specialise in providing a 1-2-1, personalised learning experience for all students that we teach.

We’ve been tutoring for years independently and as of 2020, we launched The Edinburgh Tutors which grew rapidly and then launched EFL Tutors to also include the surrounding areas!

All of our tutors are experts in their field, from maths and sciences to languages and history. You name it, we’ve got a tutor for it. Meet the team by hitting the button below!

We pride ourselves on personalisation

Every student learns in a different manner, and every student has different needs. You can see our process below of how we match students with tutors which shows we have the students best interests in mind, every single time.

Step One

Fill out the form on our website and we'll be in touch within 24 hours to discuss your specific needs to make sure we find a tutor that best suits you.

Step Two

Once we have a good understanding of what you're looking for and the knowledge required to help, we match you with a vetted and specialist tutor.

Step Three

The tutor will develop a plan to get the student the required support in their specialist area that fits the students' needs.

Step Four

Our tutor will undertake the tuition as planned  with the student and deliver the material in an easy to understand, supportive environment.

Step Five

After every lesson, we fully de-brief and take our learnings from each lesson to ensure that each future lesson is better than the last and a more effective use of time.

We love numbers!

We're a business run by students, for students. We pride ourselves on our ability to keep our learning style focused on current best practice, and that shows!

Hear from some of our previous students below about their success in working with us.

I think Forbes really enjoyed the lesson with Matei, having things explained to him clearly. I can see it has boosted his confidence already.


Tutor: Matei

We have been absolutely delighted with Chloe and her approach to her sessions with Max. I cannot praise her enough. The difference in Max is so noticeable, and he feels better in himself. The lessons seem to be going really well. Chloe and Max have a great rapport with each other. His confidence has really started to shine through in this little time. He is making leaps and bounds in school too, trying things out of his comfort zone. I really couldn't be happier or more thankful to Chloe.


Tutor: Chloe

Emily is a very good tutor, she answers all the many questions that her student is asking in the Maths region of her tutoring, she also brings in other resources which are very helpful and is a very friendly face.


Tutor: Emily

Emily has made fantastic progress with my daughter in such a short period of time. She has a lovely approach and manner and has worked well to build her confidence with Maths along the way. Great choice of tutor.

Chloe is brilliant. Summer is very relaxed with her which doesn't happen often. I had parents’ night last week for summer and her teacher said she has come on so much. She is now at the level for her spelling that she should be at, which is fantastic, so well done to Chloe for all her hard work with Summer. I couldn't be any happier with Summer’s progress, so thank you and massive thanks to Chloe.

Grace's prelims went well, thanks! Huge thank you to Matei for all the help.
