Tutor Doctor open a whopping 22 new franchises in the last 3-months as the company continues its rapid growth here in the UK. In a momentous double celebration, December sees Tutor Doctor sign its 500th franchise worldwide, cementing the brand as a world-leader in home tutoring.
“Proud is an understatement! Reaching our 500th franchise is phenomenal and something that we’ve only been able to achieve thanks to our dedicated, hardworking and hands-on team. From the support, technology and marketing teams at head office to our franchisees and their families. We’re a strong, motivated and passionate community and for that reason, we’ll continue to thrive.” Frank Milner, Tutor Doctor President.
Out of all global territories, the UK has shown the fastest growth in like for like sales since Alex Scotchbrook opened the very first UK Tutor Doctor in 2009. Since then, the company’s mission, values and culture have resonated with people from all walks of life, young and old. All of whom share a passion for building a great business whilst improving the lives of children.
Joanne Stuttle and Martine Browne are just two of the UK’s latest recruits and each one is off to a record breaking start; Joanne Stuttle is the UK’s fastest growing franchisee EVER!
A single mum to two teenage boys, former teacher, Joanne, knows only too well the challenges and pressures faced in today’s education system. Increasing demands for ‘standardised success’ left her searching for a new way to help children achieve their potential. Despite launching less than five months ago, Joanne and her team of expert tutors are already working with more than 70 families in Nottingham and the surrounding area.
With the support and guidance of the Tutor Doctor team, Joanne is proving to be every inch the successful businesswoman and has grand plans for growth!: “I’m over the moon with how well things are going but I have big ambitions! I want to be the go-to service in Nottingham and I see no reason why Tutor Doctor can’t, and won’t, become a household name!”
Just like Joanne, Edinburgh’s Martin Browne describes how, in this first weeks of business, he was ‘inundated’ with leads and is enjoying all the benefits that come with being a Tutor Doctor franchisee: “I’ve been impressed with just how many leads are coming in already! And what’s really special is the support that is available to each franchisee. II know what it’s like to run a business, I used to do it! So knowing that there’s a whole team there is amazing, not just the model, but the system, the support, the marketing – all those activities exist, and all I’ve got to do is plug into them."
To support its growing network, Tutor Doctor is also expanding its team on the ground. Former language education franchisee, Jonathan Hayes, joins the ranks as a Franchise Field Consultant. Bringing with him the hands-on experience and knowledge gained through running his own successful franchise, Jonathan is perfectly placed to guide and support franchisees throughout their journey.
“The demand for the service is ever increasing. Parents and teachers alike recognise that a personal, one-to-one approach to learning can massively benefit a child’s performance, their confidence and their overall happiness as a result. The combined skills, experience and knowledge that sits within our network is phenomenal and one of the main reasons, along with making a difference, that people tell us they choose to join our family,” explains Tim Morris, UK Country Manager.
