About Tutor Doctor
A recent Sutton Trust study found that over a third of pupils in the UK receive private tuition, and that nearly 60% of secondary school students in the UK have received private tuition at some point in their academic career.
This presents massive opportunities for Tutor Doctor franchisees in the UK; as a brand, we have already worked with more than 500 schools and 5,300 students. There is plenty of business to be generated by tapping into the unique opportunity to work with schools and local authorities through extensive funding from government grants.
Our tools, processes, and unparalleled support have helped our franchisees in the UK to build and grow their businesses. Not only will you always have the support and guidance of the Head Office team, but also that of our wider network of fellow franchisees around the globe.
What Makes Tutor Doctor Outstanding?
- Our service is highly personalised: A one-size-fits-all strategy isn’t what we do. We carefully match tutors to students and have a creative approach tailored to each child.
- We are local: Our franchise owners build partnerships, support local schools and positively impacting their local communities.
- More than tutoring: From our X-Skills Programme, equipping students with vital life skills, to regular session reports keeping parents up to date, to our recruitment process bringing in only the best tutors - we do so much more than homework help. We are also an active Corporate Member of The Tutors’ Association, working closely with them to further the tutoring profession and standards in the UK.
- Award-Winning: We hold the title as the #1 education franchise in the UK, and have been listed in the Elite Franchise Top 100 every year since its inception. And what’s more, Tutor Doctor was Highly Commended in the Best Children’s Services & Education Franchise at the 2021 Global Franchise Awards.
But don’t just take it from us - over 3000 families have rated us 4.9 on Google.
Training and support provided
Each franchisee is assigned a Launch Support Specialist who works closely with you throughout your first year in all aspects of the business. We go above and beyond to prepare our franchisees for business ownership, having spent the past two decades perfecting a comprehensive onboarding process to help our franchisees get up and running as soon as possible.
After the first year, you can choose the type of ongoing support that fits your needs best. Either participate in our Active Coaching Program, which will give you access to one-to-one coaching to guide you through your next year of operation, or get help when and where you need it with Specialist Support.
Our franchise fee starts at £38,000, but if you have at least £13,500 in available liquid capital, Tutor Doctor has a number of financial partners who can help you finance your investment; alternatively, you may qualify for the Government backed Business Start -Up Scheme which allows you to borrow up to £25,000 without investing any money of your own. (This figure doubles if the business has two Directors.)
We will assist in lead generation, and can also connect you to its lead generation partners who can help you get your business off the ground. Your overheads will remain low, as you will be working primarily from home, there are no premises, leases, equipment, or inventory involved.
Expected returns after two years vary, however, it is Tutor Doctor’s priority to give you as much support as you need to turn your franchise into a profitable and successful business. Our field research has revealed that franchisees following the proven model consistently have enjoyed high, and early returns, as well as compounding recurring revenues.
At Tutor Doctor, we believe that freedom shouldn’t come with unbearable risks. Our franchise owners, representing over 600 units in 13 countries, get the career freedom they crave without the enormous weight of going out on their own.

Tutor Doctor's history
Tutor Doctor is a leading private in-home tutoring service founded in 2000 by John Hooi, after the realisation that the classroom setting is not the optimal learning environment for each student; they started franchising in 2003. Pictured is Frank Milner, Tutor Doctor CEO since 2007.
Tutor Doctor still holds the title as the best education franchise in the UK; being placed within the top 15 in the Elite Franchise Top 100 for both 2020 and 2021. Plus Tutor Doctor was Highly Commended in the Best Children's Services & Education Franchise at the 2021 Global Franchise Awards.
Tutor Doctor is aimed to address the unique learning style of each individual student in order to help them improve their performance and learning skills.
Tutor Doctor first conducts free consultations with the students in order to evaluate the possible tutor-student relationship, and build a customised map for the student’s success. This approach has proved effective as Tutor Doctor has become one of the most successful and fastest-growing education franchises on the market.
So far, Tutor Doctor has helped over 300,000 individuals succeed with its tutoring services and 95 per cent of customers would recommend it to others, earning it an excellent reputation in the field of private tutoring. It now has over 600 units in 13 countries.
