The Demand for Private Tuition

- Recent estimates put the size of the sector at between £2-6bn, making UK parents and students among the highest per capita spenders on tuition worldwide.
- According to research by The Sutton Trust, more than one in four (27%) 11-16-year olds have received private tuition, a figure that has risen by 50% since the Trust started collecting tuition data in 2005.
- This remarkable growth shows little signs of slowing, and the demand for tuition services is projected to maintain its growth trajectory for years to come.

The National Tutoring Programme (NTP)
Choice Home Tutoring is proud to be a Department for Education approved Tuition Partner of the NTP. This government level recognition means that the company has been trusted to deliver much needed tuition to schools and their most disadvantaged students in order to maximise achievement. Their franchisees are able to take advantage of this status to support schools within their own territories and to further bolster their revenue.
What Sets Choice Home Tutoring Apart?
All Choice Home tutors are carefully vetted. They are specialists in their subject areas and are university graduates as a minimum requirement. The strength of their subject knowledge is reflected in the very positive feedback received from parents and students.
When it comes to choosing a tutor, reputation is everything. Choice Home Tutoring is trusted by thousands of students to deliver first-class, personalized tuition. Tutors are carefully matched to students - something that is vital if progress is to be made; learning becomes difficult when there is no connection between student and teacher!
Above all, the company recognizes that all students are different and learn in different ways; its success has been borne out of a devotion to delivering a service that is sensitive and personalized to each of their customers.
Training and support provided
Initial training takes place over several days at the Manchester head office, or online, or via a combination of both methods. Familiarisation with Choice Home Tutoring day-to-day operations and systems will include comprehensive software training. You will sit in on tutor interviews and have plenty of opportunity to experience how liaisons with customers are conducted. Excellent customer service is crucial to growing the reputation of your business.
After the initial settling in phase, you will meet with the Choice Home Tutoring management team at least four times per year. This will include a day on business planning, at least one group meeting per year with other franchisees, and at least two days of hands-on support in your territory. Further structured ongoing training will be delivered on a quarterly basis. Ad-hoc support is available to franchisees as required.
As a franchisee, you can be assured that their devoted team will be with you every step of the way – from the initial stages of training to providing continual support as your business grows.

The initial franchise fee for a Choice Home Tutoring franchise business is only £14,950 + VAT; however, you can have just £10,000 in readily available funds, as the balance can be funded by one of the main high street banks, or you may be eligible for the Government’s Business Start-Up Loan Scheme – with which we can assist.
In return for your investment you’ll receive a turnkey package to get your business up and running straight away. This cost includes our comprehensive induction training covering all aspects of operating a Choice Home Tutoring franchise business.
You’ll also receive launch marketing, a social media campaign and assorted marketing literature to help you start winning customers from the outset.

What we are looking for is intelligent and driven individuals who are professional in their approach to business and self-disciplined, organised and passionate about making their business a success.

Choice Home Tutoring's history
Choice Home Tutoring was founded in 2010 by Joanne and Colin Murphy, who have over three decades of experience in education, in their local area of Manchester. They saw a growing demand for experienced and reliable tutors to work with students in their homes and help learners of all ages fulfill their potential. The success of the business led to it being franchised in 2019, followed by it becoming a member of the British Franchise Association in 2022, recognition of the business being run in a professional and ethical manner.
“From the very beginning, we have worked hard to make the process of finding and appointing a well-qualified and effective tutor as easy as possible for our customers – whether that’s parents and their children, or older and mature students seeking tuition for themselves.
Our approach sees every student treated as an individual, and our commitment to providing exceptional tutoring that is tailored to the individual has seen Choice Home Tutoring go from strength to strength. Just as importantly, the tutors who partner with us receive a level of support that is uncommon in this largely unregulated sector.
Today, Choice Home Tutoring is one of the largest providers of tuition services in Manchester and the surrounding area. We currently deliver over 1,000 lesson hours per month during critical academic periods, with over 150 tutors working across our network.”
