The global tutoring market is expected to pass $102.8 billion by 2018, reports Forbes (https://www.forbes.com/sites/jamesmarshallcrotty/2012/10/30/global-private-tutoring-market-will-surpass-102-billion-by-2018/#476fbc1f2ee0), and this surge is driving growth for worldwide one-on-one tutoring brands like Tutor Doctor.
With more than 500 territories across 16 countries serving 270,000-plus students, this private tutoring franchise business is currently on track to hit close to 600 territories by the end of this year. In the first half of the year, the tutoring brand opened 35 new franchise locations, and there are 65 more set to close by the year's end.
Brand President Frank Milner attributed this strong growth to the demand for tutoring services across the globe, the high-quality tutors in the system and the company's franchisee network. Milner said that because franchises purchase territories, they have the ability to build up a base of students across several towns in a specific area.
For the second half of 2017, Tutor Doctor is setting its sights on expansion throughout the US, including major cities such as Philadelphia and Chicago, and the states of Oregon, Washington, California and Florida. The company is also looking to expand its franchise opportunity offerings in Latin America, Australia and the United Kingdom. To help fuel this growth, they are offering a $5,000 discount on regional franchise fees to veterans and are actively recruiting people of various educational backgrounds for tutor roles.
This educational franchise focuses on building the student-tutor relationship, and they also specialize in programs like X-Skills, where tutors help students prepare plans for reaching academic goals and create systems that are tailored to their individual needs. Plans are comprised of 11 X-Skills, including areas such as working memory, inhibition of impulses and task initiation. Students who are able to perfect these skills earlier in life will have it easier when it comes to reaching life goals and mastering STEM courses.
Named the top in-home tutoring franchise by Entrepreneur for 2016, this brand is actively seeking franchisees in many areas. To qualify for this franchise opportunity, applicants need a net worth of at least $100,000, with $62,500 or more liquid. The franchise fee ranges from $44,700 to $49,700, and the total investment averages from $68,500 to $111,700.
