Are You Ready to Change the Trajectory of Students’ Lives?

If you’re passionate about impacting students’ lives, serving your local community, and want to build a successful business, now is the time to invest in a Tutor Doctor franchise! A recent study conducted by the Sutton Trust found that over a third of pupils in the UK receive private tuition, and that nearly 60% of secondary school students in the UK have received private tuition at some point in their academic career.

Couple this with the business being generated by the ability to tap into the unique opportunity to work with schools and local authorities, through extensive funding from government grants. The tutoring landscape in the UK presents massive opportunities for our franchisees.

We are very proud that 2 out of the 29 National Tutoring Programme (NTP) approved tuition partners are Tutor Doctor franchisees! Read more here…

Tutor Doctor is also an active Corporate Member of The Tutors’ Association, working closely with them to further the tutoring profession and standards in the UK.

Why Choose Tutor Doctor?

  • Our service is highly personalised. A one-size-fits-all strategy isn’t what we do. We carefully match tutors to students and have a creative approach tailored to each child.
  • We are local. Our franchise owners build partnerships, support local schools and positively impacting their local communities.
  • More than tutoring. From our X-Skills Programme, equipping students with vital life skills, to regular session reports keeping parents up to date, to our recruitment process bringing in only the best tutors - we do so much more than homework help. We are also an active Corporate Member of The Tutors’ Association, working closely with them to further the tutoring profession and standards in the UK.
  • Award-Winning: We're the #1 education franchise in the UK. Featured in Elite Franchise Top 100 every year since its inception. Highly Commended by the Best Children’s Services & Education Franchise at the 2021 Global Franchise Awards.

Tutor Doctor’s Training & Support

After spending the past two decades perfecting a comprehensive onboarding process to help our franchisees get their businesses up and tutoring as quickly as possible, we believe we go above and beyond to prepare our franchisees for business ownership. Each franchisee is assigned a Launch Support Specialist who works closely with you throughout your first year in all aspects of the business.

Following your first year of business, you can choose the type of ongoing support that fits your needs best. Get help when and where you need it with Specialist Support or participate in our Active Coaching Program, which will give you access to one-to-one coaching to guide you through your next year of operation.

Required Investment

The franchise fee starts at £38,000, but if you have at least £13,500 in available liquid capital Tutor Doctor has a number of financial partners who can help you finance your investment. As an alternative, you may qualify for the Government backed Business Start-Up Scheme which allows you to borrow up to £25,000 without investing any money of your own. (This figure doubles if the business has two Directors.)

You will benefit from low overheads, as you will primarily be working from home and there are no premises, equipment, leases or inventory involved. Tutor Doctor will assist you in generating leads, and can also connect you to its lead generation partners who can help you get your business off the ground.

Expected returns after two years vary, however, Tutor Doctor insists that it is its priority to give you as much support as you need to turn your franchise into a profitable and successful business. Moreover, field research has revealed that franchisees following its proven model consistently have enjoyed high, and early returns, as well as compounding recurring revenues.

At Tutor Doctor, we believe that freedom shouldn’t come with unbearable risks. Our franchise owners, representing over 600 units in 13 countries, get the career freedom they crave without the enormous weight of going out on their own. In the UK, we started operations in 2008, and have grown to over 133 territories.
