About Tutor Doctor

In 2000, Tutor Doctor began offering one-to-one tutoring services and in 2003, their first franchised locations opened in the USA. Just five years later, by 2008, the brand expanded with its first international locations in the UK. Today, the brand boasts over 700 territories spanning 16 countries, with 78 franchisees in the UK network.

What They Offer

Tutor Doctor offers tutoring in a diverse range of subjects, skills and tutoring styles on a one-on-one, in-home or online basis. The parent company was founded on the basis that although every student can learn, they do not learn in the same way. Owing to gaps in education in traditional classroom settings, Tutor Doctor offers an innovative approach to helping students receive the individualised attention they need.

The Tutor Doctor tutoring process is unique. Franchisees get to know the students and connect them with a tutor that will teach them using methods that match their unique learning styles. Tutors then create a personalised learning plan while building a curriculum that’s in line with the student’s particular goals.

The Franchise Offering

The Tutor Doctor offering is that of a management franchise. It comes with low startup costs and minimal overheads, enabling you to work from home. You can generate income in 60 days and you get access to a wide range of training, tools, systems and support. The franchisor requires no significant capital outlay, business premises, major inventory or equipment and, you can benefit from multiple revenue streams.

The business model is scalable and supported by proprietary business technology in a market with high and growing demand. They offer tutor recruitment and matching framework, a robust coaching structure, localised marketing strategy, long-term innovation with specialist teams and so much more.

You can choose from a regional licence to the Empire Builder Programme – choose to start with a local territory or purchase multiple territories with the opportunity to scale.

In order to get started, you’ll have a welcome call during which you’ll be assigned a Launch Support Specialist. They will work with you during the first year of your operations. “They will help you set bi-weekly goals, market within your community, recruit qualified tutors, find students in your area, and ultimately guide you through your Tutor Doctor journey.”

Next up, you will begin training at home. The first six weeks will entail a self-paced online training which covers the franchisor’s business model as well as the fundamentals of marketing, sales, finance, tutor recruitment and hiring, and how to use the proprietary management software.

Once your online training is over, you will join the franchisor at their corporate office in Toronto, Canada for five days of hands-on training. Here is where you will work with other franchisees to put the skills you studied into practice and receive insight from the parent company’s training managers. You’re then ready for business.

Who Are They Looking For?

You’re the perfect fit for a Tutor Doctor franchise if you are motivated, people-oriented and you’re looking for flexibility and the ability to control your income. Also valuable is a passion for making a difference in your customers’ lives and building a great business. Tutor Doctor franchisees come from all walks of life and aren’t all former teachers. “In fact, 80% of the current UK network don’t come from an education background at all.”

Training and Support

Tutor Doctor has created innovation squads, proprietary technology and training programmes to help you grow.

“All new franchise owners go through a coaching programme of a minimum 15 months or longer that ensures they are well-equipped with the knowledge and tools to achieve their goals and deliver top quality tutoring programs in the community.  This also provides a foundation of regular communication and trust for the long term partnership between franchisee and head office.”

Once established, you will also be able to benefit from tailored ongoing support that fits your needs – this ranges from Specialist Support or by participating in the Active Coaching Programme, which gives you access to one-to-one coaching to guide you through your next year of operation.

You will also get significant marketing support from the marketing team through local marketing efforts, sales coaching, a dedicated and optimised website, local Google and Facebook ads, and event marketing and partnering with local schools or businesses.

You’ll also get support in marketing multiple services, get PR and brand recognition and utilise the proprietary management software. In fact, their custom CRM system houses all the tools you need to help your business thrive. This includes using an expert matching tool to connect students with the right tutor, get reporting on benchmarks, business goals and marketing campaigns plus track your performance, create a seamless working relationship with your tutors, send families a session report via email, as well as track and manage payments, tutoring hours and session reports.
