VAN NUYS, Calif. - July 28, 2015 - (BUSINESS WIRE) - Riding the wave of international success with expansion in 15 countries since 2003, as well as its recent ranking as the No. 1 global in-home tutoring franchise by Entrepreneur Magazine, Tutor Doctor is quickly moving closer to achieving its goal of reaching 1,000 franchise units in select markets around the world.
Tutor Doctor now has 428 franchise units in 15 countries in Africa, Asia, Central America, Europe, the Middle East, Australia and North America. The brand is carving a niche with its holistic approach and is well poised to dominate the tutoring sector, which is expected to surpass $123 billion by 2020.
It’s no wonder, then, why Tutor Doctor was recently ranked the #1 global in-home tutoring franchise on Entrepreneur’s list of the 200 top global franchises. Only companies seeking new franchisees outside the United States and with a minimum of five open international locations were considered for this ranking. Companies were chosen based on their 2015 Franchise 500® score - based on objective, quantifiable criteria including system size, growth and financial strength and stability - then adjusted to give extra weight to international size and growth.
Currently, Tutor Doctor is looking to expand its presence in Australia and the United Kingdom by meeting a need that exists in every country – education. Since opening its first Australia franchise in Sydney less than a year ago, Tutor Doctor of Sydney has been enrolling students of all ages and hiring tutors to keep up with demand.
“The desire to learn in convenient and effective ways is universal, and Tutor Doctor is best positioned to meet global demand,” said Frank Milner, President of Tutor Doctor. “Five years ago, we had 41 franchises just in North America. Today, we’re in 15 countries. There is tremendous untapped potential in Australia, the UK and around the world to make a positive impact. No matter where they live, a universal truth is that parents want the best for their children.”
Tutor Doctor’s growth is due to its ability to accommodate the universal desire to learn by employing a holistic approach and matching the right tutor with each student’s specific needs in an environment driven by several factors:
In addition, when it comes to helping students with special needs – such as ADD/ADHD, autism, dyslexia and a variety of sensory disorders – Tutor Doctor provides specially trained, ADA certified tutors, who begin working with these children as soon as special needs are identified. This averts the risk of a loss in learning while awaiting their school to assess their needs and develop an Independent Education Plan.
Tutor Doctor Education Consultants work with parents and children to assess a student’s needs, taking into account a myriad of factors that might affect a student’s ability to learn, diet and social problems, personality and many other factors. Tutors check in regularly and provide weekly session reports. Tutors help set the student up to succeed and cope both socially and academically, working with students to support them in the learning process, provide study and organizational skills, help them learn strategies for coping and compensating, and take advantage of their strengths.
With more than 400 territories in 15 countries, Tutor Doctor is the fastest-growing private tutoring franchise worldwide. The company was founded as an alternative to the “one-to-many” teaching model most extra-curricular learning centers offer by providing a personalized one-to-one, in-home tutoring service to students of all ages. Now with offices internationally, the Tutor Doctor vision is becoming a reality as the lives of students and their families are being positively impacted throughout the world. With the belief that all students can achieve academic success though two components – academic foundation building and academic discipline – Tutor Doctor will continue to lead the private tutoring industry as it surpasses 1,000 territories worldwide by 2016.
