was founded in 2003 by

Frank and Marina Duchêne

45

TLC has grown to a team of 45 talented Teachers

500+

We now have over 500 students

The Turner Learning Center is the brainchild of our Co-Founder Marina Duchêne. As a part-time EFL teacher at the time, she was trying to find more work in order to teach full-time. After working tirelessly by handing out flyers and approaching potential customers, she soon found herself with too much work and not enough time!

It therefore occured to her that she should open her own school where she could train the teachers hersel and provide high quality education for not only her customer’s children but for her own.

With the support of her husband Frank, TLC was born. Since then, we have grown to over 500 students and 45 teachers and is regarded as one of the leading EFL schools in Paris. Therefore, the teachers who work for us are a reflection of us and we only accept those who are truly dedicated, passionate and motivated to teach.
