Experience the Education Boom with Tutor Doctor

The tutoring landscape in the UK presents massive opportunities for Tutor Doctor franchisees. There is plenty of business to be generated by tapping into the unique opportunity to work with schools and local authorities through extensive funding from government grants. As a brand, we have already worked with more than 500 schools and 5,300 students.

We’ve helped countless franchisees in the UK launch profitable businesses. Our tools, processes and unparalleled support have helped our franchisees in the UK build and grow their businesses. You always have the support of the Head Office team and our wider network of fellow franchisees around the globe for guidance and help.

We are an active Corporate Member of The Tutors’ Association, working closely with them to further the tutoring profession and standards in the UK. We are very proud that 2 out of the 29 National Tutoring Programme (NTP) approved tuition partners are Tutor Doctor franchisees!

At Tutor Doctor, we believe that freedom shouldn’t come with unbearable risks. Our franchise owners, representing over 600 units in 13 countries, get the career freedom they crave without the enormous weight of going out on their own. In the UK, we started operations in 2008, and have grown to over 133 territories. A study conducted by the Sutton Trust found that over a third of pupils in the UK receive private tuition, and that nearly 60% of secondary school students in the UK have received private tuition at some point in their academic career.

According to research into the private tutoring market, carried out by Cairneagle on behalf of Supporting Education Group in January 2022, demand is projected to translate into strong growth in the next few years, and forecasts a compound annual growth rate of 7% for the tutoring market until 2025.

We’ve spent the past two decades perfecting a comprehensive onboarding process to help our franchisees get their businesses up and tutoring as quickly as possible. We go above and beyond to prepare our franchisees for business ownership, assigning each franchisee a Launch Support Specialist who works closely with you throughout your first year in all aspects of the business.

After your first year of business, you can choose the type of ongoing support that fits your needs best. Get help when and where you need it with Specialist Support or participate in our Active Coaching Program, which will give you access to one-to-one coaching to guide you through your next year of operation.

The Financial Info:

The Tutor Doctor franchise fee starts at £38,000, but if you have at least £13,500 in available liquid capital Tutor Doctor has a number of financial partners who can help you finance your investment; alternatively, you may qualify for the Government backed Business Start-Up Scheme which allows you to borrow up to £25,000 without investing any money of your own. (This figure doubles if the business has two Directors.)

Working from home your overheads will remain low as there are no premises, equipment, leases or inventory involved. Tutor Doctor will assist you in generating leads, and can also connect you to its lead generation partners who can help you get your business off the ground.

Expected returns after two years vary, however, Tutor Doctor insists that it is its priority to give you as much support as you need to turn your franchise into a profitable and successful business. Moreover, field research has revealed that franchisees following its proven model consistently have enjoyed high, and early returns, as well as compounding recurring revenues.

Local tutoring business brings coveted international award home

This month, local education specialist and owner of Tutor Doctor Peterborough, Huntingdon, Stamford, Piyush Gupta, has won a coveted international award in recognition of his commitment to raising the standards of education provision for students in the community.

Tutor Doctor continuing to give lessons on success

2022 saw the international education industry continuing to dedicate its time, resources and expertise to supporting students as they catch-up from a difficult period in their academic journeys. But, with mainstream education provision also still facing difficulties, it is supplementary, bespoke education franchises that are paving the way for a brighter future.

Tutor Doctor continues expansion across the British Isles and affirms need for supplementary learning

Tutor Doctor has continued to attract a diversity of entrepreneurs, education experts and businesspeople to its network throughout 2021, demonstrating that, especially in difficult times, there is a need to deliver supplementary learning. One such franchisee preparing to provide students with this is John Sykes, of Tutor Doctor Belfast-South and Northern Ireland. The first franchisee in Northern Ireland, John, 71, saw the devastating impact the pandemic had on students during the first lockdown. It quickly became apparent that many schools were unequipped for such circumstances, leaving students without a consistent, quality education.

John has worked as a tutor for 11 years since coming out of retirement from a career in insurance management, and quickly saw the chance to provide more children with personalised education as they catch-up on what they have missed. “I’m very excited to join Tutor Doctor in their ongoing mission to deliver high-quality education and change the trajectory of students’ lives. It is this mission that initially attracted me to Tutor Doctor, as I could see what the learning situation was in Northern Ireland and the UK. I could see from as far back as 2019, just before COVID became serious, that students were missing out on quality education. Some schools were brilliant with the online set up, but it was evident that there was also going to be a huge gap. These kids have got two years of learning to catch up on – and that’s where Tutor Doctor’s expert intervention comes in to successfully change this trajectory. We provide one to one education, and don’t concentrate on the general curriculum, but find out where the specific work needs to be addressed.

“Aside from the educational side, the set-up of the whole franchise is very good. By being allocated with a personal business manager from the head office, the ongoing support is excellent. And that helps, especially because there is so much valuable information you pick up throughout the learning process that you have to apply to ensure your business is successful.”

As well as John, Tutor Doctor has also welcomed another franchisee to their successful London network. Mahek Ganatra has combined his skill set in modern tutoring with his dad, Vinay, who has over 30 years business experience to be opening Tutor Doctor Clapham, Camberwell and East Dulwich. While initially unsure over franchising, Tutor Doctor’s proven business model and strong presence in the London area demonstrated to the pair that this was the right choice.

Tutor Doctor Success Story

As a recent graduate of economics and having tutored throughout his time as a student, Mahek is excited to be joining Tutor Doctor at a time of high demand, “Tutor Doctor’s model and network really showed us that it is a trusted, reliable brand. And people rely on those things, especially when it comes to educational services. We want to use the building blocks that Tutor Doctor provides, as well as continue to market ourselves so we can become a leading provider. We were the last territories to be bought in London - it made sense to tap into the network around us for advice while also using the skills of my dad’s business portfolio.

“The support has been great. Because of the pandemic, it has taken us over a year to set up our franchise business. Tutor Doctor has been very supportive. The head office team has been brilliant in bridging communication gaps, and by remaining present throughout the process, we have had the opportunity to use our entrepreneurial abilities to make this our own.”

The third franchisee to be joining Tutor Doctor’s network is Jeff Isaacson, of Tutor Doctor Canterbury. Jeff joins Tutor Doctor bringing with him nearly 30 years’ experience as a marketing professional. He decided that Tutor Doctor was the ideal business to invest in as he ventures on his own personal mission of giving back in a meaningful way.

Tutor Doctor Success Story

“Once I decided that the education industry was the perfect way for me to embark on my personal mission of improving the lives of others, I felt a connection to Tutor Doctor and their values. This, combined with my own experience in business, align perfectly. Apart from being a proven business model, what attracted me the most about this franchise was the idea that while you are in business for yourself, you are not by yourself. Retaining an element of freedom yet still having ready access to support that is so necessary in establishing a new business, was key to me as I couldn’t see myself operating in a box. With the intense training period now over, and with my head brimming with knowledge and ideas, I’m looking forward to the next chapter in my Tutor Doctor story.”
