Tutor Doctor Franchise

With over 640 offices in 15 countries, Tutor Doctor is one of the leading in-home tutoring franchises in the world. The Tutor Doctor model is built on the belief that every student can learn, but they may learn differently. We help each student discover their learning style and work with them one-on-one to find a solution that helps them achieve their dreams. Tutors, recruited by franchisees, work with students in their homes to provide meaningful instruction to help them succeed.

Because this approach is so powerful, 95% of our customers recommend us, making our tutoring franchise model one of the most successful and fastest-growing education franchises on the market. And because we don't build brick and mortar classrooms for students to sit in, and because there's very little overhead, our in-home tutoring franchises are some of the most profitable franchises you'll find.

To buy a franchise with Tutor Doctor, you'll need to have at least $100000 in liquid capital and a minimum net worth of $200000. Tutor Doctor charges a franchise fee of $54700.

Values & History

The Tutor Doctor Story

Ten years ago, parents were expected to play taxi driver and haul their children who needed tutoring help across town, where they would sit in yet another classroom-type setting.

Never mind that these kids were struggling because of the classroom setting. Never mind that the family had to break up their time at home, so Sally could get the help she needed. Never mind that the families' bank accounts dwindled because of the expensive, inconvenient tutoring franchises that were out there.

It occurred to us that the biggest way we could help these struggling students was to make it as easy on them as we made it on their parents. We met students in their homes, on their schedules, and priced it so that not only wealthy families could afford the educational advantage tutoring offered.

In 2003, when we saw how successful our in-home tutoring business was working for us, we turned to franchising to give students across the globe a fighting chance at success.

We worked tirelessly to figure out a way to give business owners who were interested in making a difference in the lives of children and their families a means to do just that, without actually being a tutor themselves.


At Tutor Doctor, our company values are core to everything that we do. Our values are:
  • Understanding: We begin by presuming the goodwill of others. We seek first to hear, not tell. To empathize, not criticize. To Know before we do.
  • Curiosity: We demonstrate the power of learning by learning. We're interested and inquisitive, looking beyond what is to what could be.
  • Ingenuity: We imagine, create, devise, and design. We fashion, we fit, and we form. We do what it takes to meet the needs of those we serve.
  • Ownership: We're accountable for all that we do. We step up and seek responsibility. We own our work and earn our results.
  • Grit: We don't quit.
