Experience in education, tutoring, or a related field is not required. The Tutor Doctor system is focused on replicating a proven process and turnkey business operation model. We provide you with the tools, training, technology, and ongoing support you need to effectively build your business.

 

Our diverse team of franchisees comes from a variety of professional backgrounds, from education to banking to marketing and everything in between.

We look for business-savvy franchisees that are motivated, organized, tenacious and willing to follow the Tutor Doctor system.  


Do I need an office or physical location?

An office is not necessary! Though some of our franchisees choose to operate out of a small office space, it is not required. Most consultations and tutoring services are done at our customers’ homes. Plus, Tutor Doctor’s proprietary software enables you to conduct all business management activities from the comfort of your own home.

 

How much can I make?

The answer to this question is dependent on a variety of factors, such as the number of territories you have, the number of students served and the ability to follow our proven system. We encourage you to participate in our Mutual Evaluation Process to learn about the average numbers in essential categories such as marketing, consultations, and tutor recruitment. Our Franchise Development Directors will be able to answer your more specific questions regarding earning potential.

We also have lead generation partners that can provide you with a steady flow of online leads that have been generated utilizing advanced internet technologies. In addition, we provide franchisees with training that includes marketing and sales.

Franchisees pay Tutor Doctor an 8% royalty on their gross sales as well as a 2% national marketing and branding fee.

How does Tutor Doctor continue to evolve its business?

The Tutor Doctor management team is made up of seasoned business leaders with extensive tutoring and franchise industry experience. But Tutor Doctor recognizes that, like most great franchise companies, our best ideas will often come from our franchisees. We encourage our education franchisees to contribute to the growth and evolution of the Tutor Doctor system by joining a Thought Leadership Committee (TLC) that aligns best with their interests. Some of our existing TLCs contribute in the areas of technology, marketing, training, and tutor recruitment.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need any background in education to succeed as a Tutor Doctor franchisee?

Specific experience in education or tutoring is not required. The Tutor Doctor system leverages the best of what franchising is all about: duplicating the success of others through a proven turnkey system. We provide you the tools, training, technology and ongoing support to be successful in this business. You bring a willingness to follow our proven systems.

This is an excellent opportunity for enterprising individuals. The ideal consultant candidate is a self-starter, an innovator, an effective problem solver who possesses strong interpersonal skills and, above all, someone who enjoys helping others and making a difference.

 


 

Do I need an office?

Not unless you want to! While some franchisees operate their business from a small office, the ability to keep business overheads low is one of the many reasons for the high profitability of Tutor Doctor’s in-home tutoring business model.

Most of the consultations are done in the home of our potential clients, and our unique technologies allow you to run the management aspects of your business from the comfort of your own home with just a phone and a computer.

Keep most of your nest egg intact, rather than spending it on a brick and mortar location, inventory, or employees. Our in-home tutoring franchise model gives you the freedom to work from home.

Great question! You’re thinking of investing in an education franchise, so naturally you want to know how much your wallet is going to grow!

But, we’ve also started offering adult education tutoring, virtual tutoring, and more, so that we can reach as many students in the market as we can.

That “four-minute mile”? We’re consistently breaking it. That’s what makes our tutoring franchise successful (and an exciting education franchise to be a part of, if we do say so ourselves!).

See, our business model boils down to marketing, consultations, tutor recruitment, and customer satisfaction. And during our Discovery Process, we’ll talk about the numbers that matter in each of those categories in detail to help you completely grasp the earning potential of owning one of our in-home tutoring franchises.

Every franchisee is different. Every market is different. So nailing the perfect answer for “How much can I expect to get back from my investment?” is the question of the day, but...
