Helen Young Owner of The Tutoring Center


Sep 15, 2014

Helen Young never saw herself as a business owner, but she has always had a passion for helping students learn and understand math. While in high school and college, she loved tutoring other students and loved to see them become more confident in their work. In fact, Helen planned to teach high school after earning her math degree, but while waiting for her teacher’s certification, she landed a job as an underwriter for a major insurance company.

During her 27 years in the insurance business she never lost her passion and desire to tutor, and over the years she kept an eye out for a place where she could help children learn. 

Although she came across many tutoring franchises, she found that The Tutoring Center was different. This franchise was about helping more children by helping its franchisees to be successful.  She connected well with The Tutoring Center philosophy and their system called “The Rotational Approach to Learning”.  

Even though Helen was a first time business owner, The Tutoring Center Franchise made it possible for her to be successful with their ongoing support and wonderful training program that included:

  • A step-by- step process 
  • A Support Team who quickly addressed her questions or concerns
  • Continuous training on The System and The Marketing Plan
  • A Franchise Mentor who guided her and shared in her excitement and joy as her center has grown
  • Consistent updates on system improvements and best practices 
  • A team environment of support and encouragement
  • A focus on the Franchise guiding principles of Integrity, Quality, Enthusiasm, Service and Teamwork

The Tutoring Center Franchise was with Helen every step of the way. She has now owned The Tutoring Center in Flower Mound Texas for over two years and has become a mentor who supports the success of other franchisees.

“It’s like being part of a family who provides the support we need to make it on our own, Helen said, “it has allowed me to make a dream of mine come true.” Helen now gets to spend her time making a positive difference in the lives of children and their families. She receives ongoing feedback from parents and students about the benefits they receive at The Tutoring Center.

Just the other day she had a parent tell her that they had tried everything to help their 8 year old daughter learn to read. They had her tested for dyslexia, and when the results came back negative, they just did not know what to do. Then, they enrolled her at The Tutoring Center. When their daughter received her next report card, they were excited to see she went from C’s to A’s in reading. Best of all, her confidence was up, she was happy, and she loved going to the Tutoring Center. 

The Tutoring Center of Flower Mound also had a high school student come in who barely passed 8th grade math.  While attending The Tutoring Center she made A’s in her Algebra class. When asked what she liked about coming to The Tutoring Center, she said, “I like the feeling of being confident during class and getting one-on-one help with things I struggle with in school. Also, the tutors are so genuine and so helpful. Most of all, I like going to The Tutoring Center because my confidence level increases every time I walk out the door.”

When asked about owning her franchise, Helen answers:

“At The Tutoring Center, we have created a fun positive environment where students learn which has a positive impact on the families in our community - that’s my dream come true!”
