VAN NUYS, Calif., /PRNewswire/ -- The rise in education standards across the globe and ever-changing tutoring segment that is expected to surpass $102 Billion by 2018 are driving worldwide growth for prominent brands including Tutor Doctor, the leader in one-on-one in-home private tutoring.
Serving more than 270,000 students in 16 different countries, the private tutoring franchise that focuses on relationship building between the tutor and pupil and identifying each student's needs through careful preparation and thought surpassed the 500-territory plateau at the end of 2016 and is projected to finish 2017 near 600. Through the first two quarters of the year, Tutor Doctor has opened 35 new franchised territories with another 65 on the way to close 2017.
With each new opening comes educational assistance, positive reinforcement and new career opportunities.
"Our growth is a direct result of worldwide demand for academic success, quality tutors within our system and a terrific network of franchisees who are given the chance to maximize their reach in multiple cities," said Frank Milner, President of Tutor Doctor. "By purchasing territories, our franchisees are given the freedom to build a strong base of students in many towns in a specific region. They are able to do so and also keep them coming back thanks to our outstanding educators – now at more than 17,000 – and the evolving challenges of school systems."
As the calendar year turns to the latter half of 2017, Tutor Doctor now has its sites on continued expansion throughout the United States, including major metropolitan cities such as Chicago and Philadelphia, as well as the states of Florida, California, Oregon and Washington. In addition, the company is expecting further growth in the United Kingdom, Australia and Latin America.
"Although we are seeing rapid expansion in many major markets there is still plenty of room for growth," Milner said. "Our franchisees are a mix of individuals from a variety of different backgrounds, including former teachers, corporate executives, attorneys and veterans."
Tutor Doctor recently announced a $5,000 discount off its regional franchise fees for veterans and is actively recruiting people to help the company provide academic services to students all over the world. Tutors will also range in experience, from Ph.D. candidates, Master's and Bachelor's students, working professionals and current teachers, all of whom work well with students and are confident communicators and educators.
Tutor Doctor specializes in programs such as X-Skills, where tutors act as guides and help students generate game plans for achieving academic goals, assists in the development of tailored and stylized systems for students. Game plans consist of 11 X-Skills, featuring task initiation and follow through, working memory, sustained attention and inhibition of impulses, among other items. Students who perfect these skills early on will not only have an easier time figuring out strategies for mastering STEM courses but also for meeting goals in life.
