Query with "AND"

I'm trying to write a query in my Visual Basic application (Access as a database) as follow:
strSQL = "SELECT * FROM qryLearnerwithCourses "
strSQL = strSQL & "WHERE (qryLearnerwithCourses.Learner_ID = '"txtlearnerid.Text"') and (qryLearnerwithCourses.WCB_ID = '"companywcb.Text"') "

visual basics doesn't like this statement.  after moving away from that line i get the error: "expected end of statement"  and it changes the color of this code to red.
do you know what i'm doing wrong?
thank you

As a note

You should also check the value of you text boxes to make sure the user did not enter any single  or double quotes, since they will break your code.

Yes, provided solution work. Note one more thing, sometimes user wants to enter a single code as the need of application. To handle it convert single code to double code.
