Common sense tells us that children learn best when they enjoy learning. When you arrive at THE TUTORING CENTER for your Discovery Day, you will notice right away what sets us apart from other after-school learning centers.
We are very proud of the organized, structured, clutter-free environment we provide your students. We have carefully designed our centers to help your students focus, concentrate, and excel to heights parents may have never thought possible. You will see children who are excited about learning and have FUN while doing it. Some of these boys and girls are the children the schools were convinced they could not motivate. As a Franchise Team Member, there is nothing more exciting than parents who are surprised with their child’s success and excitement!
As a new Franchise Team Member, it will be important to have great staff to work at your center. We have developed a successful method to help you hire and retain the staff that you need to operate your center. Our instructors are the best of the best: they’re painstakingly chosen from candidates with superior backgrounds. In fact, when you follow our plan, you will have a waiting list of great instructors who want to work at your Center.
All of our instructors hold bachelor’s, master’s, or doctoral degrees (many also hold other top professional credentials in a variety of fields), and our assistant instructors are recognized as top students in our local colleges and universities. Most of our centers may also have one or two interns. These interns must be at the top of their high school class and serve as excellent mentors and role models for our older students.
Our entire staff team is enthusiastic about helping students improve their academic skills, concentration, and motivation. We are considered to be the very best in the after-school learning industry because of the staff we are able to hire. Every instructor is completely trained and certified in THE TUTORING CENTER’s system of Individualized Direct Instruction™ and The Rotational Approach to Learning™. The combination of the best people, the best methods, and the best materials guarantee your students’ success and happiness for years to come.
At THE TUTORING CENTER we specialize in helping children master academic skills, get better grades, achieve higher standardized test scores, and gain the confidence, motivation, and concentration necessary to succeed. Before one of your students enrolls in your programs, you will conduct a Diagnostic Assessment that quickly and accurately pinpoints strengths and weaknesses and the skills needed for improvement. You will see these Diagnostic Assessments at your Discovery Day. Of course, you will be completely trained on how to give this assessment to your students.
After you conduct the Diagnostic Assessment, you will develop a personalized program and then give your student the finest instruction possible in a positive, fun, and caring environment. We are so confident that your parents will use us for all their tutoring needs that we do not charge parents for this valuable Diagnostic Assessment. No other after-school learning center has ever considered doing this. THE TUTORING CENTER has done this for over two decades with 1000s of students, and it’s a great marketing tool for franchise team members. As a new franchisee, you’ll be happy to know that over 80% of the families that visit your Center for information will actually enroll, compared to an average of 20% to 30% at your competitors. One of the reasons is we do not charge for testing, and parents really appreciate this.
New Franchisees are amazed how structured our enrollment system is and how easy it is to learn. This enrollment system was designed so that at least 80% of the families that visit your center enroll in one of our programs. Our percentage is so high in fact that we do not have to employ “high pressure” sales techniques like our national competitors. And don’t take our word for it! Just take your child into one of these centers in your community to get tested, and you’ll see a striking difference in the way students are enrolled. And just like the Diagnostic Assessment, parents really appreciate the fact that there is no pressure put on them to enroll. We will be going over more details of our Enrollment System during your Discovery Day.
As a new franchisee, you will want a System that outclasses your competition. Our classrooms feature an intense learning environment that combines two methods created by Edward S. Thalheimer, Ph.D., founder of THE TUTORING CENTER. Our innovative System gives your students far more guidance than they will ever receive in a classroom full of children or even in a small group.
Parents have a lot of choices available for their child, and we want to make sure your parents have a chance to make the choice that’s in their child’s best interest. For instance, many schools provide after-school tutoring or intervention programs for students who are having difficulty in school, and many of your prospective students have been offered one in the past.
Even though these programs are free to families, current research indicates that most of these programs are inefficient and time-consuming, and because they focus on completing homework they cannot offer the children of your community a permanent solution.
While school-based tutoring may provide short-term help with homework, THE TUTORING CENTER’s intense One-To-One Instruction and The Rotational Approach to Learning™ actually provide your students with long-term skills that will last a lifetime. We will be reviewing both learning systems at Discovery Day.
Research indicates that children who are successful in school have strong academic skills in reading, math, and writing. We know that stronger academic skills lead to better grades in the classroom. We have found that successful students have test scores in reading, writing, and math that are six months to one year ahead of their current grade levels. So that’s our first and primary goal for your students.
THE TUTORING CENTER’s System will help the children of your community dramatically improve their math, reading, and writing skills while increasing their concentration. We are the only after-school learning program in the United States that not only will rapidly improve academic skills, but will also increase concentration and attention span. We accomplish this with our system of One-To-One Instruction combined with The Rotational Approach to Learning™.
As a new franchisee, you want to make sure you are joining an organization that has a good reputation. Our reputation in the community for superior academic services is strong. In fact, over the years many teachers, principals, private school directors, and even superintendents of education have placed their trust in us to help their own children succeed. The quality of our educational system is unmatched.
When we started THE TUTORING CENTER in 1994, we must have had the right idea because each year the demand for our personalized tutoring programs has increased dramatically. THE TUTORING CENTER’s commitment to Integrity, Quality, Enthusiasm, Service, and Teamwork has always set us apart.
As your families benefit from our unique approach, they refer THE TUTORING CENTER to their friends and neighbors. These referrals are at the heart of our growth as we quietly expand without a flashy advertising campaign. Families recognizing the clear benefit of a "personal mentor," are choosing our unique approach. As a result, we have become one of the fastest growing after-school learning companies. And we’re glad that you are considering joining our team.
As a new franchisee, you will want to join an organization that parents feel good about joining. As a new franchisee, you also do not want every enrollment to be a stressful “sales” situation. We have totally taken the stress out of our enrollment procedures so that you can enjoy your Center’s success and helping the children of your community.
Our tuition rates are very reasonable for the intense, individualized, top-quality One-To-One Instruction we provide. And, we have set up our tuition rates to be very family friendly. It is easier than ever for a family to send two or three children to study with us because we offer substantial family discounts. Also, because our research has revealed that families enrolled with us for more than 12 months have shown remarkable progress and growth, we encourage families to stay with us longer by reducing tuition rates over time. All of our current tuition rates are included on our website. Franchisees may modify these rates depending on the area your Center is located in.
Education and after-school learning is one of the most important growth industries in the United States, even if the economy is not doing as well as it should. Helping children in your community achieve academic success, motivation, and confidence is an incredibly rewarding experience and continues to be one of the most important issues facing our country.
The U.S. educational market is second only to health care as a percentage of gross national product now exceeding $700 billion. Tremendous profit potential exists for the private sector to provide outside supplemental services and can take advantage of the growing student population while at the same time finding ways to streamline the inefficiency that exists in schools today.
The market for supplemental education is growing and growing. The financial opportunity this represents for our franchisees is very rewarding. If you are considering investing in a franchise, there is no better place than supplemental education. THE TUTORING CENTER is poised for greatness.
Over two decades of testing and refining, THE TUTORING CENTER has developed a “winning formula.” Our franchise opportunity is unique because you have the ability to change the lives of children while investing in your future. What could be better than that! Running one of our Centers is a personally rewarding and enriching business opportunity. You can create a lifestyle for yourself that positively influences the lives of children in your community. In other words, “you’ll make a difference!”
Owning one of our franchises affords you recognition and a “time-tested” system. We give you a proven method of doing business in this industry. We take great pride in creating a successful relationship with our franchisees. In short, we are “partners in your success.” It’s important to us that we create an environment of Teamwork. We work closely with our franchisees to make the entire company more successful. By working together and supporting your needs, you receive all the tools to run a successful business in our industry.
We provide you with significant support and guidance in helping you open your business. Here are just a few ways we help you with in getting your Center up and running:

Our most successful franchisees are those that have a high level of energy and enthusiasm, a love for people (especially children), a drive to succeed, a passion for high quality, and a strong commitment to service. They also want to work with us as a “Team”.
