With over 500 locations in 16 countries, Tutor Doctor has changed the lives of 270,000+ people by helping them with their academic goals. This is accomplished by utilising a unique one-to-one tutoring approach that matches students with professional tutors based upon the students' individual needs.

Why Is The Private Tutoring Market Booming?

Private tutoring is growing by leaps and bounds and it is now the fastest growing segment in the education industry! Today's parents are increasingly turning to tutors to supplement their children's regular education or to compete for competitive university entrances. Consider this: In the UK alone, the tutoring industry is valued at £6 billion a year, according to The Daily Telegraph. That’s more than what the entire Las Vegas Strip casino industry generates on an annual basis. Moreover, the Telegraph recently published an article about ‘super tutors’ earning up to £1,000 per hour, while CNN aired a programme on celebrity tutors who were making over US$1 million (approximately £620,000) in yearly earnings.

More interestingly, market research specialist Global Industry Analysts has released a study stating that the global private tutoring market will surpass US$102.8 billion (approximately £64 billion) by 2018 and US$123.8 billion (approximately £77 billion) by 2020. That’s an extraordinary 20 per cent growth in just two years. 

 So with no evident market leader, extremely high fragmentation, explosive growth and recession resistance built in, the tutoring market in the UK, as a business opportunity, is positioned for massive success, but only if planned professionally and with scalability. Enter Tutor Doctor.
