Company Overview

Tutor Doctor provides one-to-one in-home supplementary education for all ages, subjects and abilities, including: primary, SATs, 11+, common entrance, GCSE, AS/A2 Level, degree subjects, learning difficulties and languages.

Most importantly, our DBS-checked tutors are matched by skill-set, personality and aptitude to the student they are tutoring, based on information gathered during our free consultation service.

Whether it’s for exams and revision techniques, building confidence or helping students that are falling behind, individual private tutoring is the answer.

Daily Life of a franchisee

day starts at 8-9am at a home-based office, following up on emails and organising the agenda. Before noon is when parents start calling about tutoring. From around noon to 2pm is when matching of tutors and students is done, plus one or two tutor interviews. From 3-7pm is when home consultations are done. This consultation evaluates the requirements of the student so we can assign the right tutor.

David Boddy

PM’s former Press Secretary makes education his business!

David Boddy, already an established businessman, confesses that he wants to be the oldest and most successful Tutor Doctor franchisee worldwide. The 65-year-old was keen to add to his, already impressive, CV and help give something back to the younger generation. David’s passion for education and his community has seen his business flourish since training. He and his team smashed their first month’s goal within two weeks of opening their London-based franchise in October 2018. And his plans for the future are grand.

“The values of Tutor Doctor completely align with those of my own. The advantages and the opportunity to succeed is significant. There is such a positive market for home tutoring in the UK so, I plan to expand across London and into other metropolitan areas in the future. I’m extremely proud to tell my friends that I’m part of a global association - it’s very satisfying.”

Tutor Doctor is the fastest growing in-home tutoring franchise in the world. Franchisees work with families to thoroughly asses a child’s needs and then carefully select the best-fit tutor based on goals, personality and learning style. Tutors then visit students at home or work with them via an online platform, so that they can learn in the comfort of their own home, at a time that suits them.

Tutor Doctor franchisees arrange and oversee the tutor/student relationship for a truly bespoke solution and exceptional level of service.

“My experience in independent businesses taught me that it can often be lonely with very little support. I knew that I wanted something that had a better structure to it and that’s the moment I realised franchising was my opportunity. I needed my business to be able to deliver quickly, to cope with demand, and provide me with the support and knowledge to see me through the process.”

David’s professional journey began in the early 1970’s when he graduated from the Wellington School of Journalism in New Zealand, deciding shortly after to travel to the UK to get more work experience and complete a Master’s Degree in Ethics. With a distinct passion for politics and philosophy, he went on to become the Conservative party’s Press Secretary where he served Margaret Thatcher in the 1979 and 1983 press campaigns.

“It was such a formative experience that helped me understand leadership – especially the importance of values and vision in leadership. This position alone shaped my subsequent future and made me realise the direction in which I wanted to go.”

In 1997, David helped launch a graduate training company with a central purpose of lifting the experiences and career opportunities of young people. He was then invited to become Headmaster of a senior boys’ school in Middlesex, wrote two education specialist books and was elected Chairman of The UK Society of Heads - where he oversaw professional development programmes for budding and new head teachers. It was whilst in this role that David discovered the passion that would ultimately lead him to Tutor Doctor.

“It was clear that too many young people had not had the opportunity to evolve their own sense of purpose or realise their calling. So, I pulled together a group of young men and women, including my own sons, and together we launched a charity called the Lucca Leadership Trust.  We provided leadership training to young people between 16-30 years old to help them discover their inner strengths and find their feet in the working world. I knew then that I wanted to actively change young people’s lives.”

In looking to combine education with making a difference, David discovered that the Tutor Doctor franchise opportunity was the obvious choice: “I particularly liked the way Tutor Doctor do business. They are straight-forward people that work with complete transparency – they take care of the child and the whole family. I knew that I wanted to continue with my inspiration towards learning and Tutor Doctor allows me to do just that.”

David’s desire for an extensive support network was realised from day one as, like all new franchisees, he spent 80 hours in online training followed by a full week training at Home Office. “It was fully intensive, and the Tutor Doctor promise of complete training and support was definitely fulfilled. I have to admit, they were very long days, but we got the whole A-Z of running a franchise, so it was worth every minute. My colleagues and I were completely confident that we could go away and face any challenge.”

After you launch your franchise, we ensure you are actively supported across all areas of your business through structured training programmes, weekly coaching calls, weekly global calls and on-demand support as you need it. As your business grows, we have specifically designed support systems to help you continue growth, build momentum and, ultimately, scale your business to help you achieve your financial and personal goals.

“Tutor Doctor brings a lot to the party and the investment level is very generous. I am provided with industry-leading technology, company branding and advanced systems that make my everyday workload manageable.”

Even though he is an experienced education professional, David has the ongoing support of a Launch Support Specialist (LSS). Weekly meetings allow for strategic business planning and problem-solving for any issues that David and the team are facing. The LSS regularly spends time on the ground with franchisees to offer support, reassurance and that all-important face-time.

“There were a couple of issues to begin with and, even though they were at an operational level, the support was tremendous. They were quickly resolved and that was down to the efficiency of the training and the availability of my LSS. Since then, it has been very positive. Getting that first enrolment was a massive highlight and it showed that all my hard work was starting to pay off. To see the team full of gratitude was extremely satisfying. Being a relationship business, we have the ability to change people’s lives and working with others is much better than doing it alone.”

Tutor Doctor has almost 600 franchise territories in 15 countries across the globe. Already topping the bill in Europe, the UK is also one of the top spenders on private tuition worldwide. The proportion of pupils receiving private or home tuition has increased by more than 30% over the course of the last decade, from 18% in 2005 to 25% in 2015. Our UK network of over 70 franchisees all enjoy an exciting, scalable business whilst making a positive impact in the lives of children.

 

“I’m looking forward to being a major player in changing the trajectory in young people’s lives – satisfaction from that will be incredible. I know that certain elements of the existing learning systems are failing and, unless radical change happens, they will continue to fail. I believe that our team, and Tutor Doctor, can make that change.”

Joseph Folwell

Achieving success beyond his years

If you’d have told Joseph Folwell three years ago that he would soon be running his own successful business - and be on the brink of substantial growth - he may well have laughed at you! But, with his 30th birthday still way off on the horizon, Joseph is celebrating an exceptional 18 months at Tutor Doctor Hackney. Including his expansion into two more territories and a current ranking of 8th in the UK.

“Maybe I’m not your typical franchisee - I’d always wanted to be my own boss but I’m not from a family of self-employed, go-getting entrepreneurs. The one trait my family all possess, is a hard-work mentality and a drive to be the best at anything we put our minds to.”

Bristol-born Joseph has always been driven to succeed and says it’s his humble beginnings that have led to him being a highly motivated individual in all aspect of his life.

I’m not embarrassed to say that I come from quite a poor background - I think that’s been a big part of my drive and determination. Also, when I was at college, I joined a peer-to-peer tutoring system and began tutoring younger, AS Level students. That’s when my passion for education really began. Seeing the difference that it made in my own life, and the lives of others, really stuck with me.”

After completing his degree in Biology at Imperial College, London, Joseph was offered a place on a teaching graduate programme. And his subsequent career path began to fall into place.

The programme was challenging but I was promoted to management in the second year. I went on to teach in a private school and several colleges. I was a teacher for five years before I became a Tutor Doctor franchisee. I’d always dreamed of being my own boss, but I found out that doing it on your own isn’t that simple. When I was in my fourth year of teaching, I tried setting up my own tutoring business. The trouble was, whilst I was great at recruiting tutors, I didn’t have the marketing knowledge or sales experience to make it work.

“Tutor Doctor wasn’t unfamiliar to me – working in private tuition – but I stumbled across the franchise opportunity quite by accident. I was at a conference and ended up sitting down for lunch with the other delegates… one of whom was Tim Morris, Tutor Doctor’s Director of Franchise Support. I handed in my notice at the college a week later.”

Tutor Doctor is the fastest growing in-home tutoring franchise in the world. Our franchisees work with families to thoroughly asses a child’s needs and then carefully select the best-fit tutor based on goals, personality and learning style. Tutors then visit students at home or work with them via an online platform, so that they can learn in the comfort of their own home, at a time that suits them. Tutor Doctor franchisees arrange and oversee the tutor/student relationship for a truly bespoke solution and exceptional level of service.

“I was lucky enough to be offered a place on Tutor Doctor’s Young Entrepreneur Scholarship Programme. This meant that the franchise fee for my first territory was funded entirely by Tutor Doctor and my repayments were interest free. I felt completely reassured that they believed in me enough, as well as their own business model, to accept me. Yet another reason why I’ve been determined to succeed and make everyone proud!”

Like all new franchisees, prior to his launch, Joseph spent 80 hours in online training, as well as full week at Home Office in Canada: “The training was really good, very intense, and I met loads of interesting people. It was fun, and completely full on, but that’s the whole point – you want to get the most out of it so it’s beneficial to take part in everything.”

As your business grows, we have specifically designed support systems to help you continue growth, build momentum and ultimately scale your business to help you achieve your financial and personal goals.

“The support is great – I have no complaints there. When I need it, I know that I will always get a quick response. The support has been fundamental with my expansion to Islington and Stoke Newington last year too. Because I could see the growth in the entire UK network, and that lots of new franchisees were coming into the business, I decided that I wanted to secure additional territories and expand. Thanks to my planning, proven development to that point and the great relationship that I’ve built with my franchisor, they were very encouraging and worked with me to make it happen.”

Tutor Doctor has almost 600 franchise territories in 15 countries across the globe. Already topping the bill in Europe, the UK is also one of the top spenders on private tuition worldwide.

Our UK network of 70+ franchisees all enjoy an exciting, scalable business whilst making a positive impact in the lives of children.

Joseph’s success to date has been impressive: he provides work to over 80 local tutors, has worked with over 170 families and secured a long-term partnership with the largest school in his area. Not unsurprisingly, he has no plans to slow down any time soon!

My plan is to maximise the output in my existing territories and then expand again. Strategically, I plan to have four territories by the time I reach my five-year anniversary. Currently, my marketing is generating so many leads that my projected growth looks like it’s going to be outperformed by actual numbers! I’m motivated to succeed not just for me, but for the families and students that I work with. I know how much education can change lives. I’ve experienced first-hand the effects of children struggling in school and I know that my business makes a difference. The impact of my franchise, now and in the future is something that I’m incredibly proud of already.”

“There’s no magic solution to success. I worked really hard! I followed the system, I chased after every lead, I threw myself 100% into the Tutor Doctor brand and franchise.”

Katrin Dennehy

Rediscovering the passion for education

Education has always been close to Katrin Dennehy’s heart. She spent over a decade teaching in Secondary schools throughout Essex but eventually began to feel let down by the traditional education system. Not one to admit defeat, Katrin actively went on the hunt for something that would reignite her passion once again. She found the perfect opportunity in the form of Tutor Doctor.

“I began to disagree with several aspects of the education system. Nowadays, teachers are put under so much pressure that I started to fall out of love with that which I had invested so much time and effort into for so many years. I wasn’t keen on being involved with certain school systems that I just didn’t believe in and which, I felt, were detrimental to not only teacher’s but student’s mental health too. Now, Tutor Doctor allows me to create an impact by providing supportive education from a different angle.”

Originally from Germany, Katrin came over to the UK in 1995. After a couple of years working as a Foreign Language Assistant in Colleges and Secondary Schools, Katrin decided to train to become a qualified Modern Foreign Languages teacher. After showing much promise, she was quickly promoted into middle management, in charge of pastoral care, before moving on to become Vice Principal of a secondary school in Romford. It was whilst in this role, in charge of inclusion, safeguarding and a coordinator for special needs students, that Katrin found her passion clearly lay in protecting and promoting the welfare of students.

But the role still didn’t give Katrin the satisfaction that she thought she would get. Although the job was very rewarding in many ways, she felt as if nothing much was ever accomplished despite working over 60 hours a week. So, with her own children grown up, she decided now was the time for a change.

“My husband, David, has had his own franchise for many years and he informed me of the support and success of investing into a franchise. In February 2018, I went to a franchise exhibition where I spoke to Nigel Mayne, the Franchise Director of Tutor Doctor. It was the first stall that I came across but I immediately thought ‘No – I don’t want to go back into education!’

“I continued looking around the rest of the show, I was interested in a care franchise, but I somehow kept being drawn back to Tutor Doctor. I’d gathered information from other brands that I was interested in to make sure that I had a few to consider. Tutor Doctor stood out as I was able to provide support to students, however in a way that I had true belief in.”  

Tutor Doctor is the fastest growing in-home tutoring franchise in the world. Our franchisees manage a team of tutors and work closely with families to identify the needs of students. As a successful business owner at the heart of the local community, franchisees help children to achieve their potential and change lives for the better. In today’s modern, hectic world, the tired old centre-based model lacks convenience and the personal touch. Tutors visit students at home or work with them one-to-one via an online platform for a truly bespoke, person-centred service.

Katrin handed in her notice but school policy meant that she had to continue to the end of the school term before being able to go on her training. In August 2018, Katrin and her fellow new recruits flew out to Toronto for an intensive seven-day business bootcamp.

“Once I’d eventually arrived, it was amazing. I learnt everything that I needed to know to get me started for when I got back home. Although it was a very steep-learning curve for me, I was certain that I’d be supported throughout the whole process.”

After you launch your franchise, you are actively supported, by a Learning Support Specialist (LSS), across all areas of your business through structured training programmes, weekly coaching calls, weekly global calls and on-demand support as you need it. As your business grows, we have specifically designed support systems to help you continue growth, build momentum and ultimately scale your business to help you achieve your financial and personal goals.

“I’m quite independent and like to figure things out myself. I prefer to do and learn as I go along. The good thing was that I knew I had support from my LSS if I required it. The support I’ve received from other people in my training class has been invaluable, too. We’re always in contact and it’s great to know that we’re all going through the same issues at a similar time – whether they’re good or bad.”

Tutor Doctor has over 640 franchise territories in 15 countries across the globe. Already topping the bill in Europe, the UK is also one of the top spenders on private tuition worldwide, with 25% of households using private tutoring services. Our UK network of 70+ franchisees all enjoy an exciting, scalable business whilst making a positive impact in the lives of children.

Katrin’s passion for education has given her the opportunity to create a lasting impression on many students’ lives in her local community. Since her launch, she has utilised her existing contacts to create relationships and boost her business – becoming part of Havering’s ‘Alternative Provision’ programme as an ‘approved provider’ for schools.

“As part of the programme, I work closely with several schools if students need extra tuition. It might be because they display challenging behaviour or because they have special educational needs, but the schools can come to me directly to provide that service in the knowledge that I adhere to strict practices. As well as those connections, I have over 50 tutors providing tuition to over 100 families.

“The sense of achievement that Tutor Doctor gives me is like no other. Families know that I have a lot of experience in education and they feel comforted by that. The satisfaction scores that I’ve received from my clients actually placed me in the Top 10 across the whole global network. That is a great feeling!”

The first year of business for Katrin has been comfortable and has given her the satisfaction that she was once craving. The ability to set her own schedule has worked wonders for her personal life too.

“The flexibility of my schedule is perfect. With most of my family still living in Germany, I have the freedom to visit them if I wish. When I first started, it was all about generating attention for the business and making sure the foundations were set before growing, so I worked seven days a week. However, I quickly established myself in the local area and I’ve since been able to have Sundays off and most Saturdays, too.

“Since leaving teaching I now enjoy a much healthier lifestyle. I enjoy cooking and sitting down for dinner with my family as well as taking long walks in the surrounding parks and woods with our dog. I can still provide an education to local students but not to the detriment of my personal physical and mental health.

“Tutor Doctor has really allowed me to rediscover my passion. It presented itself as the perfect opportunity to make me fall in love with education all over again.”

Stephen Woolley

The start of a new life

Stephen Woolley is something of a sales veteran – having enjoyed a very successful career spanning three decades. However, he eventually began to tire of the role and the nagging desire to be his own boss became increasingly insistent. This drive for autonomy, combined with a shift in the tech-sales industry spurred Stephen on to look for something new. He discovered he could utilise his past experience, fulfil his dream and make a difference at the same time. He launched his Tutor Doctor business in Loughborough in 2017 and started his new life.

“I was working in the very fast-moving tech industry which meant that I had to keep ahead of the curve at all times. With the rise of cloud-based self-service software and technology, clients’ spending patterns changed forever and it dawned on me that it was time to leave it all behind. I grew bored of the rat race and needed a new goal. I’m passionate about delivering customer service and making good things happen for people, and my Tutor Doctor business allows me to focus on the only thing that really matters - giving my customers a great experience.”

Stephen graduated from Manchester Polytechnic (Manchester Metropolitan) in 1983 with a degree in Economics. His career encompassed sales roles at various multinational IT companies - including NCR, DEC, and Sun. Responsible for high-value contracts and managing relationships with large clients, Stephen’s sales experience underpinned his consistent ability to secure multi-million-pound contracts. When the time came to move on, Stephen’s natural business acumen led him to seek out low-risk opportunities in which he could leverage his wealth of transferrable skills.

“I wasn’t entirely sure what I wanted to do, but I did my own research on the types of opportunities that were available – things like B2B coaching and sales training. I’d always dreamt about working for myself and franchising provided a happy medium. At the age of 57, starting with a completely blank sheet wasn’t realistic or attractive – I needed something that was turnkey with a proven model. I went to a seminar hosted by NatWest in Manchester that showcased the benefits of investing into a franchise.

“Tutor Doctor was one of the brands to give a presentation and they piqued my interest. It struck me as a clever concept but, without a teaching background, I initially dismissed it as a viable option for me. I soon realised that I didn’t have to have that to get involved. My background in sales and my ‘customer-first’ values would provide the foundations of my business, while the franchising model would fast-track me with the rest.”

Ever methodical, Stephen continued with his search for business opportunities but found himself constantly drawn back to Tutor Doctor. After being approached by a member of the team, he concentrated his efforts into researching the business – and he wasn’t disappointed in what he found.

“Tutor Doctor offered a lot of things that I was looking for. Obviously, there was the sales aspect that I felt very comfortable with. The emphasis on the customer experience and service, making a real difference and the fact that it’s a truly local, community focussed business – I felt very strongly that I was the right person to do that and make a success of it.”

In August 2017, Stephen flew to his one-week intensive training in Toronto with his fellow new franchisees. Since then, over the course of just two and a half years, Tutor Doctor Loughborough has grown considerably, not just from Stephen’s own efforts, but with support of the Home Office team too. 

“Loughborough is a sought-after area, with an aspirational population that wants the best education for its children. And with a UK Top 5 University close-by, I saw that it was crying out for a private tuition service that would cater for a wide range of subjects and age groups – all whilst being professional, personable and accessible.

“Although I never stop looking for good tutors, I have built up a core team that I know I can trust. They are extremely dedicated and I know that can depend on them as and when I need them. We’ve had situations where tutors haven’t been able to continue working, and a student and others have been on hand to save the day – I’ve even been the Tutor Doctor taxi in some cases where I’ve driven tutors to ensure they can meet their client obligations. It’s those special touches that really resonate with parents and families.”

Stephen believes that his local knowledge has proved vital. He brought his own children up in the area and says that being able to leverage opportunities within the community has helped his business to thrive.

“I’ve struck up a partnership with a local magazine where I write a blog each month. It feels great to be able to contribute with my expertise whilst promoting the business at the same time – it’s a double whammy! I’ve also worked with one secondary school in the area to provide tutoring to two students. They paid to send a tutor to their home and support them with their studies. It’s a great feeling to feel appreciated and be a trusted service. The fact that I’m able to concentrate on the area where I've lived for many years is what makes my service so personal. I currently employ 30 tutors providing tuition to over 40 families – I’ve worked with over 140 families since launching.”

After spending 18 months building the foundations for his business, Stephen focussed on the next phase of development – sustaining his growth. He moved into his own office space which gives him the chance to create a better a work-life balance and allows Stephen to enjoy a freedom he never experienced before.

“Now the business is in a good place, I don’t have to be in the office to manage it. The business can carry on without me. My laptop has already been to various European countries, including Bulgaria, Poland and Belgium – as long as I’ve got a good Wi-Fi connection, the wheels can keep on turning and I can relax knowing that everything is under control back at home.”

“I see this as a long-term business venture that will support me up to and beyond retirement, and I want to create an asset that has real value. My ultimate goal is to become the go-to tuition company in Loughborough – providing fulfilling work opportunities for local people and helping students on their journey towards achieving their own goals.”

 

“I’d spent 32 years working for larger companies and, although the perks were great, I always had somebody telling me what to do. Now, I get up in the morning and think: what can I can today to grow my business, make the service better and help more children?”

Piyush Gupta

Ex-finance director searches for more “soul”

When Piyush Gupta was offered redundancy after 20+ years working within finance, he jumped at the opportunity. In trying to decide on his future, Piyush’s main aim was to find something that offered more fulfilment and enjoyment. Something with ‘a little bit more soul’. After evaluating his priorities and assessing his skillset, Piyush knew the direction he wanted to take. All that was left was to find the perfect role.

“After my redundancy, I knew that I didn’t want to go back into the corporate world – I needed something that gave me more satisfaction. I began looking at education, health and working with children as that was guaranteed to give me that sense of accomplishment that I craved. I then thought a lot about what I’d enjoyed in my work and the main things were business development and managing a team – so I knew I was looking for a career that combined all these things.”

After completing a Business Degree and becoming a Chartered Accountant, Piyush went on to rise through the ranks in some well-respected companies. The 51-year-old’s career has seen him support a £200million division, manage and recruit large finance teams of staff as well as proving to be instrumental in the growth of an entire business model. A key team player, he also provided business support to directors and team leaders, before redundancy gave him the opportunity to become his own boss.

Whilst on the lookout for his new vocation, Piyush kept an open mind. He applied for many roles in his hometown of Peterborough, hoping to find the right fit. After seeing an advert which said: ‘Be your own MD in Peterborough’ he was intrigued. The meeting, however, was not what he expected.

“I spoke with Fiona Price from Tutor Doctor and she started talking about the franchise model. I immediately said ‘No! This isn’t for me’ to which she replied: ‘Hear me out’. After a few more  discussions with Fiona and other franchisees, I was sold. We spoke about how I would still be my own boss but have the added security and support franchise model and the team behind me.

“I was so impressed by the structure of the franchise and how I could create a business for me but have an impact on other people too. We really get to know the families we work with to ensure the right tutors are matched with students for the best outcome. That’s led to Tutor Doctor being a go-to brand for advice. I was keen to be a part of that.”

Tutor Doctor is the fastest growing in-home tutoring franchise in the world. Our franchisees work with families to thoroughly assess a child’s needs and then carefully select the best-fit tutor based on goals, personality and learning style. Tutors then visit students at home or work with them via an online platform, so that they can learn in the comfort of their own home, at a time that suits them. Tutor Doctor franchisees arrange and oversee the tutor/student relationship for a truly bespoke solution and exceptional level of service.

“I spoke with other franchisees and they seemed to have one thing in common – the passion for education. They all wanted to have an impact on the formative years of a persons’ life, and I knew that I had to be part of it.”

In September 2016, Piyush and his fellow new recruits flew out to Toronto for an intensive seven-day business bootcamp. Tutor Doctor’s award-winning training programmes prepares new franchisees for everything they need to run a successful business so that when they arrive back home, they’re ready for launch!

“The training was great and really comprehensive. It felt great to meet people from different backgrounds that were about to do the same thing as me. It gave me real comfort in knowing that I was part of something much bigger that I could bring back to my community. We went through every aspect you could think of including profiling individuals, sales training and the recruitment process – tutors are the cornerstone to our business after all. However great the training was, I must admit my mind wanders very quickly – I just wanted to get out and do it.”

After you launch your franchise, you are actively supported, by a Learning Support Specialist (LSS), across all areas of your business through structured training programmes, weekly coaching calls, weekly global calls and on-demand support as you need it. As your business grows, we have specifically designed support systems to help you continue growth, build momentum and ultimately scale your business to help you achieve your financial and personal goals.

“It’s amazing to see the constant development and growth within the franchise that goes on at all times. There’s always free courses that I can book onto, weekly conference calls and regular meetings with my LSS that help me to develop my own business.”

Tutor Doctor has over 640 franchise territories in 15 countries across the globe. Already topping the bill in Europe, the UK is also one of the top spenders on private tuition worldwide, with 25% of households using private tutoring services. Our UK network of 70+ franchisees all enjoy an exciting, scalable business whilst making a positive impact in the lives of children.

The first two years of business for Piyush were so successful that at the beginning of 2019, he expanded into two more territories – Huntingdon and Stamford. The expansion meant that Piyush recruited an administration assistant and an Education Consultant to allow him the time to focus more on growth and customer care. He also enlisted the help of his son to work on the social media for the business.

“I knew that I wanted to have an impact on more people, so it just made sense to expand to the neighbouring territories. I want to get them to a point where I’m just replicating the success of Peterborough and going above and beyond for more families. I currently have 75+ tutors on the books that work with over 100 families across the three regions.

“The sense of achievement I get from Tutor Doctor is nothing like I ever imagined. When I get a phone call from parents telling me their child has done great things because of my tutors, it is such a rewarding feeling – I’ve been close to tears on occasion. It’s a complete contrast to my corporate job as it’s more personal.”

As he approaches his third-year anniversary, Piyush reflects on the success of his business so far. He still has grand plans for the future.

Once I reach three years, I’m going to have a pit stop and evaluate everything. Then, I will go forward methodically and see how I can take things to the next level. I’m hoping I can get the two new territories to a level where I’m left to consider expanding once again – that would be very exciting! I also want to hire another Education Consultant to help manage the areas.

“I think the most important thing is that I’ve been honest with myself. I knew that I wasn’t going to be the best at every single aspect of business, but I was assured I’d have the team behind me to help. Looking back now the only thing I ever ask myself is ‘Why did I ever become an accountant?’”
