Unlock your franchise dream with Tutor Doctor

Tutor Doctor’s franchise model is at the heart of Australia’s thriving $1.4 billion private tutoring industry. The business is dedicated to transforming lives through tailored education and has been achieving its goals for 20 years.

Boosting the academic performance and skill set of school age students, has proved to be good business. Parents recognise the importance of education and the increasing competition to get into top universities and are willing to invest in services and products that promise better academic outcomes for their children.

There’s a surging demand for personalised education, and online learning.  According to a report by ReportLinker, the global private tutoring market is expected to reach $201.8 billion by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 8.4 per cent over the analysis period. The report also highlights that the increasing need for education, the growing number of schools, colleges, and universities, and subsequent rise in student admissions across the world, is driving the demand for private tutoring.  

Tutor Doctor franchise model

To help entrepreneurs enter and navigate this burgeoning sector, Tutor Doctor provides a proven business model, comprehensive world class training and ongoing support.

The brand’s initial success in Canada led to the expansion of the business across 12 countries around the world, including 11 franchisees and 18 locations in Australia. 

Tutor Doctor has changed the lives of more than 300,000 students, deploying its unique one-to-one tutoring approach that is driven by students’ individual needs.

What’s different about this brand of tutoring is taking the learning to the student’s home, whether that’s in-person or online. 

A one-to-one approach ensures students get the attention they need, and it fills in the missing educational pieces, says Fiorella Alva, Tutor Doctor’s senior manager, franchise development. 

It’s a beautifully simple approach: a hand-picked tutor works with a student to find their optimum learning style.

Parents and students love the customised learning and flexible scheduling, backed up by regular feedback and progress reports.

Build a dream franchise business with Tutor Doctor

Tutor Doctor’s core philosophy is that every child can learn, but not every child learns the same way.

While matching students with tutors is fundamental to the business’s success, franchisees don’t need to be tutors themselves, they manage a group of tutors.

Although prior experience in the education sector is advantageous it is not necessary. What franchisees need above all else is a desire to build a successful business while making a positive impact in their communities and in the lives of the students they serve. 

Franchisees need strong interpersonal skills; there is regular interaction with students, parents, tutors, and community members. A Tutor Doctor franchisee’s role also includes leading and motivating the team of tutors. The ability to build robust relationships and network with the local community is also critical to unlocking business success.

This is a home-based opportunity with very few overheads, no inventory, and a prompt payment system that ensures cash flow from the beginning. There’s a growing customer base and a recurring revenue model.

Flexibility as your own boss

Franchisees work with our proprietary software to manage business operations, oversee the tutor network and track student success.

It can take as little as three months to set up a new business in a protected territory that allows you to build a market-leading tutoring service.

Amy Adamson owner of three territories in Bondi, Maroubra, and the Five Dock area, began her Tutor Doctor journey as a way to bring balance to her life. She wanted more time to spend with her family and the flexibility of being her own boss. But once she began growing her education franchise, she found the business was so much more than she expected.

“Flexibility is definitely still a factor as I have a busy family life. However, I really enjoy the satisfaction of providing solutions to families to help individual students achieve their goals. And I enjoy providing work for my tutors.”
