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.

The Tutor Doctor 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. As an alternative, 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.)

Working primarily from home, means your overheads will remain low as there are no premises, equipment, leases or inventory involved. Tutor Doctor will assist you in generating leads, and can also connect you to its lead generation partners who can help you get your business off the ground.

Expected returns after two years vary, however, Tutor Doctor insists that it is its priority to give you as much support as you need to turn your franchise into a profitable and successful business. Moreover, field research has revealed that franchisees following its proven model consistently have enjoyed high, and early returns, as well as compounding recurring revenues.

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.


Tutor Doctor was founded in 2000 and started franchising in 2003. We operate in 13 countries with over 600 franchised territories, with 133 of these in the UK. At Tutor Doctor, we believe that freedom shouldn’t come with unbearable risks, our franchise owners, get the career freedom they crave without the enormous weight of going out on their own.


We have unparalleled training, tools and support, and have spent the last two decades perfecting a comprehensive onboarding process to help our franchisees get their businesses up and tutoring as quickly as possible.

Our proven system for franchisee success includes preparing our franchisees for business ownership, and assigning each franchisee a Launch Support Specialist who works closely with you throughout your first year in all aspects of the business.

After your first year of business, you can choose the type of ongoing support that fits your needs best. Get help when and where you need it with Specialist Support or 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.

What will I do as a Franchisee

As a Tutor Doctor franchisee, no two days are ever the same. Your day is filled with diverse tasks that keep you engaged and connected with your community.

Client Care: Clients are the backbone of your business. From the first call or email to the consultation and tutoring sessions, you offer a white-glove, personalised service that needs to reassure your clients that they made the right choice.

Recruitment and Training: You don’t need to have a background in education to own a Tutor Doctor franchise, but you do need to hire qualified tutors. You’ll need to ensure that your team is equipped to deliver top-notch tutoring services to families.

Marketing: Community marketing is essential to success for a small business owner. Being engaged in your community not only promotes your business but also demonstrates your commitment to the families within your area.

Review and Planning: Part of running your business is regularly reviewing and planning to improve upon your success. With the help of your business coach, you’ll work to reach your goals and desires.
