Tutor Doctor has over 15,000 tutors in 15 countries and they are affiliated with the National Tutor Association. These tutors are managed by 220 franchisees who control 400 territories. Franchisees are generally people who want to own their own businesses and don’t need a background in education; only a desire to make a difference.
In this interview, Martinez explains about the outstanding growth of Tutor Doctor worldwide, competitive advantages, tutor training, franchisee backgrounds and more. Fox also makes reference of a recent study projecting the global private tutoring sector to surpass $102.8 billion by 2018.
The interview starts by exploring Tutor Doctor’s unique, personalized, in-home and online tutoring service. Since very few students will actually work at the pace of the class, some will fall behind and others will get bored as the pace is too slow. In both cases, poor grades may cause anxiety and damage self-esteem. Tutor Doctor helps students to achieve their academic goals in the comfort of their homes and works at the pace set by the student’s abilities.
Tutor Doctor is unique in that it provides tutoring for school-age children, adults and seniors. In fact, people of all ages can rely on Tutor Doctor to help them achieve academic success.
Tutors are caring and compassionate and all go through rigorous training provided by Tutor Doctor. They have to pass an online interview and a personal interview as well as a background check which means that Tutor Doctor provides families with tutors who are caring and qualified. The training helps each tutor to recognize your student’s learning style so that they can present information in the best way.
Start with a free consultation by an educational consultant to determine the exact needs of the student as well as the aspirations of the family. Tutors then work with the student, teacher and parents on a plan that will cover short-, medium- and long-term goals. Parents receive regular updates on student’s progress.
