Flexible working whilst making a real difference
MagiKats Maths and English is a management franchise with a tutoring twist. It suits both those looking for a management franchise opportunity and those looking for an education franchise, as teaching can be as hands-on or hands-off as desired.
As a family business, our priority is getting the right people, not just as many people as possible. So whether you are a teacher looking for a change, or working in a completely different industry but looking to get involved in children’s education, the MagiKats franchise could be for you.
MagiKats workshops offer maths and English tutoring in small groups to children from pre-school to GCSE (or local equivalent qualification). Each student studies a two-strand programme of curriculum support and core skills development. In addition to subject skills, we help develop skills in thinking, problem solving, studying and socializing. Every MagiKats student has a programme put together for them as an individual — no two programmes will ever be identical.
The role of the MagiKats franchisee
MagiKats franchisees use our unique computer system and programme to manage students’ programmes, monitor their progress and provide feedback to parents. Franchisees employ mentors — a more inclusive title than tutors — to deliver the subject tuition to small groups of no more than six students at a time. A centre manager (usually but not always the franchisee) runs each workshop session and liaises with parents on their child’s progress.
Never taught or employed staff before? Our programme and training provides you with all the tools you need to prepare the programmes for each child and our tutoring training programme shows your staff how to deliver an excellent MagiKats experience.
Back in the office, a MagiKats franchisee markets their business, deals with parents, prepares work for the students, takes sales calls, monitors customer payments – basically everything you would expect a small business owner to be responsible for. Our comprehensive training and support package provides you with access to decades of experience and practical guidance on all aspects of running a small business.

Can you meet the MagiKats challenge? Let’s do some maths!
Question: A MagiKats Principal has 60 individuals enrolled and turns over around £6,500 per month. These individuals attend workshops spread over four hours weekly and two staff members assist the principal by providing tuition. How much does the principal earn in a year?
Answer: This MagiKats Principal could earn around £52,000 profit per annum. But what about the 60 individuals – where do they come from? The UK tutoring market is worth £6.5 billion per year and, in 2014, 2.8 million children received additional tuition. Here’s a supplementary question for extra credit – can you work out the percentage of those children you need to attract to get your 60?
Now for an English question — one based on empathy.
“Working with MagiKats has been more extraordinary than I could ever have anticipated. As an engineer, I would not have thought I could find so much pleasure working with children and teenagers – seeing them develop as individuals is just as rewarding as hearing about their exam results.” Aidan Mills, MagiKats Centre Manager
“Being a MagiKats franchisee has completely changed my life – for the better! I now have plenty of time for my family and friends, whereas before I used to be rushing from home to work. Life is 100% more enjoyable nowadays!” Stefanie Kosky, MagiKats Principal
Imagine you are working in the same business as these people. Describe how you would feel as you woke up every morning.
Answer: The answer rather depends on your perspective. Do you want to work in your own business where you look forward to the coming day? Working as a MagiKats Principal is challenging but extraordinarily rewarding.
