Frank Milner, president: "It's an exciting opportunity that can help a lot of students."

Today, Tutor Doctor has 232 franchisees that operate more than 450 territories in 16 countries. "We have come a
long way since those early days in 2008
and it's been terrific," Milner adds.
"And we are just getting started."

Key Differentiators

Tutor Doctor has a network of more
than 20,000 tutors. It strives to match
students to the right tutor.

Lifestyle Business
Tutor Doctor expands its reach worldwide while
preparing for a virtual reality future. BY JANICE HOPPE
Tutor Doctor is working to
take in-home tutoring to the next
level with state-of-the-art technology that it expects will make the brand
a household name worldwide. "The
marketplace and our society is changing so rapidly; technology is evolving
so rapidly, and we know that will have
a big impact on our business," President Frank Milner says. "We are making sure we are on the leading-edge so
we invest a lot in technology. We really keep our pulse on what's happening
in the way of technological advances
and how we as an organization can
capitalize on those things."
The company began as an innovator
in the industry by offering something

no other tutoring service did at the
time: in-home tutoring.
"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,"
the company says. "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."
Tutor Doctor began franchising in
2003 after its business model became
a success. Milner saw great potential
in the company and acquired Tutor
Doctor in 2007, making improvements in training, operations and
technology along the way.

Tutor Doctor was named the No. 1
in-home tutoring franchise worldwide by Entrepreneur Magazine. Its
low-cost startup with low overhead
model requires no build-out, leases,
equipment or inventory and a franchisee can be up and running in fewer
than 60 days. "It's also a great lifestyle
business," Milner says. "We attract
people to our system that perhaps
want to build a lifestyle business because they have a young family and
want a good work/life balance."
In addition to the operational benefits, Milner says Tutor Doctor is a
rewarding business because it truly
helps students and makes a difference in their lives. "The biggest gift
that students come away from the
program with is the confidence that
they can accomplish anything they
set their minds to," he explains.
Tutor Doctor achieves results
through its "magical match" process
that pairs students with the right tutor. The company's matching process
takes into consideration not only what
subject the student is struggling with,
but also their learning style and personality. "If tutors really connect with
the students, that's when real learning
can take place," Milner says. "That's a
big differentiator. We have a saying: 'It
is one thing to make a dollar but another thing to also make a difference.'"
All tutors are vetted by franchisees,
undergoing an extensive background
check. Although the company does
attract a lot of franchisees and tutors
from the education industry, it is not
