I was connected with Tutor Doctor, and was excited about an opportunity that came up through them. Out of nowhere, the family supposedly decided that they wanted someone with more experience tutoring the subject that was desired. In the hopes of finding more opportunities with them, I stayed hopeful. After a few weeks went by, I received another call from them. They told me to be ready to... Read more

I live in Woking, Surrey. My son is doing his GCSE's and we were interested in finding a tutor to help him with maths and science. Went on to google and saw this tutor doctor ad so gave them a call. The woman I spoke to had an American accent and was possibly the most frustrating person I've ever spoken to. I asked about their rates and she simply would not tell me, instead she kept saying "the... Read more

Sadly another UK Franchisee, Steve Almond from Manchester goes out of business. A nice smart guy with a passion for helping children gets duped and robbed by Tutor Doctor. In the last six months that counts to about 6 UK Franchisees that have had to close down their businesses because this model AS FACT is illegal and does not work in the UK. Yes maybe 5 are doing ok, but in total about 15... Read more

This is how this business works. As the franchise has to pay out high marketing costs, royalties and branding fees, plus endless other *** which is forced upon them. This then creates what they pay their actual tutors to be very minimal, i.e £17.00p/h when the customer can be paying up to £50.00 p/h. Therefore the business attracts tutors that are not fully trained and even aware of the actual... Read more

We have just had an terrible nightmare with this company. The tutor that we was sent told us that he had not been interviewed by the company, (that turned out to be a one man pony). WE then asked if he had a current DBS/CRB check to show us and he told us that he did not have one yet but it was going to be done soon. We were outraged as we were told that all the tutors from this company were... Read more

Panic, my daughter just goes back to school, so we decided that without a doubt we needed a tutor for her GCSE. A guy turns up, tells us how great the company is, gives us a leaflet, asks a few questions, then tries to sell us some thing about X skills. Hello I just want a tutor that can teach my daughter how to pass her exams. I asked him will the tutor know the exam board and subject... Read more

I hired tutor doctor for my daughter to upgrade her math. The teacher my kid likes left the company. The tutor doctor franchise we signed up was from Abbotsford, a couple who took over from the former owners from Vancouver. While we got the tutor we want, the husband and wife team owners do not compensate their employees and took most of our payments without any replacement teacher. I personally... Read more

Please be warned we were recently visited by a very nice man who claimed to be a Tutor Doctor Education consultant when he arrived he spoke about what they provided and offers it all seemed to go very well. The Education Consultant then asked if he could be alone with our 7 year old son while he carried out an assessment with our son. I then became very uncomfortable with this I asked the... Read more

When a franchisee joins Tutor Doctor they are pestered to buy a wrapped vehicle constantly by Tutor Doctors field support agent Tim Morris, aka Tim Morris the thieving coniving Tutor Doctor salesman who financially R A P E S franchisees at every possible opportunity. Tutor Doctor tell their franchisees that they're getting a discount, which simply isn't true. The guy who is Tutor Doctors approved... Read more
