June 30, 2015 // Franchising.com // OGDEN, Utah - There will be fewer “math meltdowns” and other homework headaches in Northern Utah now that Rick Bunch has introduced Tutor Doctor – the fastest growing “in-home” private tutoring franchise worldwide – to the community.
Tutor Doctor, a one-to-one in-home tutoring service designed to help students of all ages and subject levels, announced the opening of its newest location in Ogden offering the community and students a private, easy way to get ahead in school. Tutor Doctor of Northern Utah opened in early June and is owned by local entrepreneur Rick Bunch.
After over 20 years of service in the United States Air Force and with various marketing and sales companies, Bunch saw communities in Northern Utah had a need for a business such as Tutor Doctor. Bunch credits his drive for success with Tutor Doctor to both his family and his involvement in his Ogden community. An active member in his local church, Bunch hopes to help busy families raise and educate their children. Bunch is a father of three who often found it difficult to help educate his children when they were growing up. He was an active member of the United States Air Force and maintained aircrafts on the home front and overseas during Operation Desert Storm. Bunch believes that he relates well with large, busy families within the Utah community and wants to help take the pressure off parents while educating and building the confidence of their children.
Since the economy’s upturn, the demand for tutoring has drastically evolved due to a myriad of reasons including the adoption of new technologies, rising student enrollments, intense competition among students, inability of standard education systems to address the unique needs of each student, lack of teaching staff at schools and outdated school infrastructural facilities. As a result, the marketplace for tutoring has never been stronger, with a study projecting the global private tutoring sector to surpass $102.8 billion by 2018. Now with a new location opening in Ogden, Tutor Doctor will continue to expand its local presence to meet the growing demand for convenient, effective private tutoring services.
Tutor Doctor starts with an in-depth academic and learning style assessment in order to create a custom program and to find the perfect match between the tutor and student. In addition to working with the student’s current curriculum, Tutor Doctor’s Academic Game Plan focuses on the development of key executive functions, such as organizational skills, time management and task prioritization, to help students become high performers in school and in life. Tutor Doctor also collaborates with the students’ current teacher, while keeping open lines of communication with parents throughout the process. As a complement to the personalized tutoring program, Tutor Doctor 24/7 provides students with thousands of online study lessons that are all aligned with their school curriculum. This innovative digital resource also tracks the student’s progress while giving them access to previous or future grade level coursework.
“Students across the Northern Wasatch Front stand to gain significant value from Tutor Doctor,” Bunch said. “We look forward to assisting students in achieving their educational goals with programs that are specifically designed to fit the needs of each individual. One-to-one tutoring ensures that each student is being given the utmost attention and tools for success. It also provides our tutors the satisfaction of seeing their students’ progress. We can’t wait to start helping students reach their full potential.”
In addition to providing school-age students with tutoring in various subjects, many families also hire Tutor Doctor to help students get ahead and prepare for more advanced challenges, such as honors classes that could help them get into a preferred college or university. With the recent launch of its ACT/SAT Success Program, students now have access to the best one-to-one, in-home test preparation. Tutor Doctor has also proven valuable for the rapidly growing home-schooled population, as well as for seniors wanting to learn technology skills.
