October 09, 2013 // Franchising.com // Toronto, ON – Over the past several years, the public education system has been under scrutiny for its lack of funds and struggling programs. As a result, the private tutoring sector has drastically grown at accelerated rates as parents try to secure the best possible education for their children amidst high competition. According to a 2012 study by Global Industry Analysts, Inc. (GIA), the global private tutoring market is projected to surpass $102.8 billion by 2018. Of this growth, the study also found the U.S., Europe, and Asia-Pacific make up more than 90 percent of the private tutoring market, with Americans spending over $15 billion a year for academic tutors.
With so many people enrolled in private tutoring to further their education, it’s important that students proactively make the most out of their sessions so they’re able to walk away with a better understanding of both the material and the learning style that works best for them.
Tutor Doctor, the fastest growing "in-home" tutoring franchise with over 370 territories worldwide, has identified several factors for students to keep in mind before, during and after a one-on-one tutoring session to maximize comprehension and retention.
"For students who are perhaps struggling academically or want to get ahead, scheduling a tutoring session is a great first step," said Frank Milner, President of Tutor Doctor. "At the end of the day, students need to understand that it’s up to them – not their tutors – to put forth the extra effort to really soak in the material at hand and ultimately figure out how to improve their study habits moving forward."
For students who are working with a tutor or considering hiring a tutor, the following are tips by the Tutor Doctor team to keep in mind before, during and after a private tutoring session.

The company quickly grew and in 2003 turned to franchising as a way of expanding the company’s impact and meeting the vast market demand. Now with offices internationally in Canada, the United States, Latin America, the United Kingdom, Middle East and the Caribbean, the Tutor Doctor vision is becoming a reality as the lives of students and their families are being positively impacted throughout the world.
