About Studybuddy.

We’re passionate about going the distance with each student.

We’re convinced that everyone can learn, even if circumstances differ. That’s why we cater to each individual family’s needs and together create clear goals and an action plan for the tuition. In order to reach your goals, our Study Buddies always work to motivate and inspire their students in order to build increased confidence and a love for learning.

About our Study Buddies.


We realise the importance of tutors who are passionate about teaching and their academic subjects in order to successfully transfer their knowledge to their pupils. Therefore, we make sure that our Study Buddies really do love teaching and have a passion for sharing their own knowledge, as well as being a source of inspiration for their pupils.


We also believe that a Study Buddy with fresh knowledge from university and a modern approach to teaching is a successful one. A good connection between the tutor and tutees is also key for good results.

All of our Study Buddies are carefully assessed and vetted before offering employment and taking on their first student:


  • All have a relevant educational background
  • All undergo an enhanced DBS background check
  • All are tested pedagogically
  • All have completed Studybuddy’s introductory training program



Every pupil and family has unique needs; the tuition should work both in a practical sense and also create the best conditions for reaching the pupil’s goals. We have continuous contact with both families and tutors during the whole matching process. We always follow up after the first lesson with your tutor in order to ensure that you are 100% satisfied. With our satisfaction guarantee you may always choose to change Study Buddy if the first session is not to your satisfaction.

About the company.

Studybuddy was founded in 2004 in Stockholm, Sweden, by four university students hoping to replicate the successful teaching methods they were inspired by at university; namely having older students teaching younger.


The concept that emerged was to allow university students with fresh knowledge of their subjects and an understanding of the younger pupils’ situation start tutoring. Since 2009, Studybuddy’s client base has doubled annually, something that we are extremely proud of.


Studybuddy expanded to the UK in October 2014 and the company has since been hiring university students from the top London universities to tutor pupils in primary, secondary and college curriculums, offering advice and assistance on a range of areas including interview and exam preparation.


Our concept of using student tutors breaks the conservative educational mould. In a country traditionally used to archaic teaching techniques tied to the educational processes of today, more and more families are realising the positive aspects of hiring a young, ambitious and academically gifted student to guide their child.

The UK expansion has proven to be successful and has resulted in many satisfied customers reaching high performance, from 11+ through to A-levels.

Where do we operate?

Our head office is located in Westminster, London. However, our tutors are based throughout all of Greater London.

The majority of our tutors currently study at the top four universities in London, namely Imperial College, UCL, LSE and King’s College. In order to meet the needs of pupils in all areas of Greater London, we also hire university students from universities in the outskirts of the city. In the west, we have tutors from Royal Holloway and Kingston University, and in the east we provide tutors from schools such as Queen Mary and Greenwich University.
