About Our Main Line Tutors

Private In-Home and Online Tutoring Services

There are many obstacles in the current learning environment. From having limited access to busy teachers to juggling numerous responsibilities and obligations, students often find themselves falling short of their academic goals. Add to this the classroom restrictions caused by the pandemic, and it is little wonder that many students need extra help.

That’s where Tutor Doctor comes in. Our mission at Tutor Doctor Main Line is to provide students of all ages quality one-on-one instruction in a safe, productive, and encouraging learning environment. We have worked with more than 200,000 families in 15 countries, improving skills and knowledge levels while fostering a love of learning. A key to our approach is that we carefully tailor all sessions and lesson plans – and importantly, studying methods – to the individual needs of the student. And with our state-of-the-art online instructional platform, Tutor Doctor provides a seamless tutoring experience for those families that prefer the virtual format.

Our tutoring programs at Tutor Doctor Main Line include:

  • Elementary & Middle School Tutoring
  • High School & College Tutoring
  • Test Preparation
  • Adult Tutoring
  • Summer Programs

At Tutor Doctor Main Line, we understand that tutoring is much more than just a ‘one size fits all’ solution. During your free consultation, we will gather all the information needed to match your student with a tutor that is compatible in terms of academic credentials and learning style. This ensures that sessions will be productive and efficient – and perhaps even something your student looks forward to! Our services are designed to address each student’s strengths and weaknesses in creative and effective ways, helping them reach their full potential and soar to new heights.

Local Management

Joe Ford, Tutor Doctor Main Line Owner

I’m Joe Ford, owner of Tutor Doctor Main Line. I have lived in Havertown and Ardmore for over 20 years; many of you may recognize me from Brookline Baseball Leagues or as a coach in Havertown Hoops, or perhaps as the resident Alex Trebek at local Quizos. But the most important thing to know about me is my appreciation of and fondness for the neighborhoods of the Main Line. This area is a great place to live with a wonderful sense of community.

My son attended Chatham Elementary and Haverford Middle School, and is now a junior at Haverford High. I have seen up close the quality of education he has received at these schools, and I know for certain – and it is reflected in statewide assessments and ratings data – that other institutions along the Main Line are also of very high caliber. That said, tutoring is often an important – and for some students, necessary – complement to existing curricula. Whether it be to maintain pace with classmates or to go from good to great in an effort to earn admission to a top college, Tutor Doctor can provide the support students need to achieve their goals.

We have high-quality tutors standing by to help your students in all core subjects, and also to assist those preparing for their SAT and ACT exams. Additionally, we can also identify and correct any issues students may have with their organization and study habits through our patented X-Skills system. I am personally involved in all program designs and tutor matches, and will work to ensure the sessions are scheduled so that they fit into your student’s (and your) routine.
