About Tutor Doctor

Tutor Doctor is the fastest growing and top ranked in-home education franchise on the market. that started in 2002. The company has been franchising since 2005. The franchise offered is for the operation of a business under the name “Tutor Doctor” which offers affordable tutoring services at a student’s home. This franchise system or platform offers an effective alternative to students and parents who prefer to receive tutoring help in their own home instead of traveling to a learning center.

Years ago, parents were expected to play taxi driver and haul their children who needed tutoring help across town, where they would sit in yet another classroom-type setting.
Never mind that these kids were struggling because of the classroom setting. Never mind that the family had to break up their time at home, so Sally could get the help she needed. Never mind that the families’ bank accounts dwindled because of the expensive, inconvenient tutoring franchises that were out there.

In 2003, when we saw how successful our in-home education business was working for us, we turned to franchising to give students across the globe a fighting chance at success.
It occurred to us that the biggest way we could help these struggling students was to make it as easy on them as we made it on their parents.

We meet students in their homes, on their schedules, and price it so that not only wealthy families can afford the educational advantage tutoring offers.

We have worked tirelessly to develop a model to figure out a way to give business owners who were interested in making a difference in the lives of children and their families a means to do just that, without actually being a tutor themselves.

Today, we have over 500 units in 16 countries and have helped almost 300,000 individuals around the world! We give a FREE consultation to evaluate the possible tutor/student relationship, to build a personalized map for the student’s success.

Because this approach is so powerful, 7 out of 10 consultations close with an average enrollment value of $2,346 and a 59% profit margin, making our tutoring business one of the most successful and fastest-growing on the market.

And because we don’t build brick and mortar classrooms for students to sit in, our in-home tutoring franchisees are some of the most profitable franchisees you’ll find.
