Making Learning Enjoyable and Rewarding

Tutor Doctor is the world’s fastest growing provider of one-to-one home-based tuition. The company was established in North America in 2000 and started its global franchise operation in 2003. It now has over 400 franchised territories in more than 14 countries and a network of 16,000 tutors. Operations in the UK began in 2009 and since then the company has experienced growth of 50% year on year and now has 28 franchise owners in the UK.

All stages of the academic journey are catered for from primary school to college and university. All subjects are covered and students receive one-to-one tuition in the comfort and privacy of their own home. Tutors are handpicked so that the tuition programme is closely tailored to the individual's specific needs and learning style. Before being selected, tutors undergo an extensive interview process as well as mandatory background checks.

Frank Milner, Tutor Doctor President commented: “Our approach is unique. Unlike traditional ‘learning centre’ based tutoring we provide tuition at a time and place which fits in with a busy family schedule. Initially we identify the student’s abilities and challenges. Then from our extensive network of highly qualified and vetted tutors we match up the tutor who best fits the individual’s needs and learning style.”

Rogelio Martinez, VP of International Development added: “We have a proven and profitable business model. The franchise owner manages the network of tutors and organises the tuition sessions. The business can be operated from a home office so has low overheads and high earning potential. The home tutoring market is exploding as families realise that their children frequently need additional help with their studies to realise their full academic potential. The global private tutoring market is projected to be worth $103bn by 2018 so this is a high growth sector.”

Tutor Doctor franchisees come from all walks of life. Some 83% of the current UK franchisees come from backgrounds other than education. They have previously worked in sectors as diverse as financial services, IT and manufacturing.

The Tutor Doctor franchise provides everything you need to operate a successful home tutoring business. It starts with 80 hours of online training followed by seven days intensive training at the global headquarters. During the first three months of operations the franchisees are supported by a success coach to help them plan their weekly tasks and goals. In addition, franchisees are given extensive marketing and business development assistance to build up a local customer base as well as bespoke CRM software to help them manage clients, tutors and marketing campaigns.

Beyond training, Tutor Doctor assigns a local “Franchise Field Consultant” who helps growth and profitability of each region given the unique nature of each market. Franchising Industry veteran Tim Morris works together with franchises throughout the UK with regional meetings, “Bootcamp” programmes and special partnerships with local schools.

“A Tutor Doctor franchise can be highly rewarding not just financially but in terms of making a real difference in helping our students achieve their full potential. We believe learning should not be a chore – Tutor Doctor makes it fun and rewarding,” says Morris.

Investment in a Tutor Doctor franchise costs from £29,700 and additional working capital will be required in the early stages of the business.

The company is a member of the British Franchise Association and for the past two years Tutor Doctor franchisees have been nominated in the prestigious BFA awards. Tutor Doctor is also a member of The Tutors’ Association which has been established to set standards for the private tuition sector in the UK.
