One-to-One Instruction™, combined with The Rotational Approach to Learning®, provides students with the best tutoring instruction in the industry. The Rotational Approach To Learning® was first developed with the goal of helping children with attentional, behavioral and learning disabilities like ADD and ADHD. Research has shown that all students who learned in 30- and two 15-minute increments in different locations with different sets of materials and One-to-One Instruction™ dramatically maximized their academic performance and concentration.

In 2006, the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA), which houses one of the finest psychology departments in the world, heard about The Rotational Approach to Learning and what it was doing for children all across the United States. Here is a summary of the results:

The Rotational Approach to Learning: The Real Deal

Thomas Murray Ph.D., UCLA Department of Cognitive Psychology September 2006, revised for 2011 “In summary, from the standpoint of cognitive science and the primary recommendations made by the newly formed IES, The Rotational Approach to Learning is far ahead of most educational endeavors applying the best cognitive science has to offer. Our study of The Rotational Approach to Learning strongly indicates that The Tutoring Center® has the most effective, reliable, and most predictable system for academic improvement in the private after-school learning industry.”

The Finest Instructors In The Industry!

As a new franchisee, 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 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 One-to-One 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.

The Diagnostic Assessment

(A Great Tool For Franchisees!)

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.

Results Far Superior To Home-Based

Or School Tutoring Programs – Guaranteed!

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.

The Tutoring Center®’S #1 Goal

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®.

What Do Parents Think About Us?

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.

Very Reasonable Tuition Rates – And No Long-Term Contracts

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 location of their Center.

Our Franchise Opportunity

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 Education Market

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.

Our Winning Formula!

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.
