We personally interview and screen all of our tutors to ensure they meet our high standards of character, desire to make a difference and qualifications. We hire teachers, subject specialists and special education instructors. Let us match the right one for your student’s needs.
Our tutors have criminal record checks, references checked, an orientation to the Tutor Doctor method, and ongoing accountability and support. Tutors are matched to students based on individual academic needs, personality, learning style, and geography. We also recognize that having an academic impact on a student is only one of the areas our tutors can really help their students.
For some students having a strong mentor that helps them love learning, gives them confidence, and teaches study and organizational skills is the key to increased motivation and commitment to learning. For other students it is having a tutor that can explain things in a way that really makes sense to them. Making the right match can make all the difference for a student, so we strive to find the “magic match” for you!
We work together with your family and teachers to identify the right learning strategies and perfect tutors.
We find the gaps in your child’s knowledge, then we help them to catch up and excel in their current courses.
About 15 years ago, we had a simple idea and a desire to make a difference. We wondered why parents had to adjust their family’s busy schedules and drive half way across town just to put their child in another classroom with more kids…when in fact it was the classroom experience that their child was struggling with in the first place.
What if a tutor could come directly to the child’s home to deliver tutoring services instead of fragmenting a family’s precious time together by forcing parents to act as “taxi drivers”?
What if there was flexibility in the tutor’s schedule so that tutoring time slots could be scheduled to accommodate for a family’s busy schedule?
What if a struggling child could get one-on-one attention instead of being limited to the “one-to-many” teaching models used by most extra-curricular learning centers?
What if a tutor could develop a personalized program by working with the child’s existing homework and school curriculum instead of loading more standard textbook work on an already overwhelmed child?
What if average families could get access to top tutoring resources sometimes reserved only for wealthier families?
These questions and more were eventually answered through the development of the Tutor Doctor program. Over the last 15 years, the Tutor Doctor vision has taken shape. In 2003 the company turned to franchising as a way of expanding the company’s impact and meeting the vast market demand. Now with offices internationally, the Tutor Doctor vision is becoming a reality as the lives of students and their families are being positively impacted.
