When thinking about opening your own business, things have to feel ‘right’. But what does that actually mean?The 'Right' ProgramIf you are researching tuition franchises, then you will already know that there are lots of programmes out there. Some focus entirely on worksheet-based learning, some use software. Some require shop premises, some are home based. In our opinion, the MagiKats programme is the best out there (we would say that), but does the way we run our programme fit with what you wa...Read More

Open your own MagiKats Tuition Centre
A franchise with MagiKats Tuition Centres offers you the chance to build a substantial business whilst giving back to the community by educating the next generation in maths, English and reasoning.
- If you are looking to swap the corporate lifestyle for one more centred around you and your family, then MagiKats could be for you.
- If you are in education but want to regain control of your “free” time then MagiKats could be for you.
- If you simply feel you need to be your own boss, but with the support of a proven system that has been successfully operating for over 15 years, then MagiKats could be for you.
What is MagiKats?
MagiKats Tuition Centres are unique – they each follow the same system but also reflect the personality of the person in charge.
Every MagiKats Tuition Centre offers out of school tutoring in maths, English and reasoning, for children from pre-school to GCSE (National 5 in Scotland).
Every MagiKats Tuition Centre offers an individual programme for each of its students, ensuring they get the support they need, no matter their situation.
But every MagiKats Tuition Centre also fits into its community – tailoring its provision to the demands of local families.
"MagiKats feels like a family not a franchise. I am not forced towards targets and staff at head office support me to make decisions that work for my business and my students. They are on hand to offer advice but leave me to run it my way using an existing structure that works."
Louisa Whittaker, MagiKats franchisee
