Frank Milner has been president of Tutor Doctor since 2007. The moment Frank learned about the model, he recognized its vast potential and was hooked. With a daughter who struggled with what he called “math meltdowns,” Frank understood firsthand the chief benefit of Tutor Doctor’s one-on-one model being that it ensures privacy for the student and addresses his/her specific needs. He also recognized Tutor Doctor’s unlimited growth potential, since education is one of the only segments that’s universally valued across nearly every culture and continent. Coming from 10+ years in tutoring franchising as well as working in the insurance industry and becoming known as the sales coach, Frank and his team outlined a strategy to cater to the growing demand for private tutoring by introducing the unique Tutor Doctor concept to new cities and countries around the globe.

Following his success as a franchisee with two different franchise companies, and the development of an international distribution company in his early 20s, Dan co-authored the book “Why Not Me?” in 1993. The forward of the book was written by world-renowned inspirational speaker Dr. Robert Schuller, and endorsed by the likes of Mark Victor Hansen (of Chicken Soup for the Soul fame). The book became a national bestseller and launched the growth of a new publishing division marketing inspirational books, tapes and seminars and partnering with industry leaders like Anthony Robbins, Brian Tracy and Nightingale-Conant. Using his ability to foresee emerging trends and capitalize on them, in 1996 Dan wrote the book “Amazing Secrets of Profiting from the Internet” and founded WSI Digital.
In 2006, Dan founded Franchise Equity Group - a private equity organisation whose mandate is to make investments in the development of high-growth brands in the education franchise industry. Its first acquisition was of Tutor Doctor.
(Vice President, Global Franchise Development)
For over a decade, I have successfully owned and operated my franchise before ultimately selling as part of my planned succession. I then began working on the franchisor side of the equation. Coming from an operational background, I naturally gravitated to training and support, giving me the opportunity to assist new franchise owners in getting the traction that they deserve when starting their business. You only need three things to set yourself up for success – a proven concept – proven support and training team – and you! After truly understanding the importance of the “you factor” in business, I moved over to the development side of franchising to help people discover and evaluate franchising. My goal is to identify, support and provide the pathway to your future success in business ownership.
