Tutor Doctor Franchise

Owning and running her Tutor Doctor business has been the biggest change for Alex

2nd May 2012


Alex had been training and performance-coaching adults at IBM for ten years when she thought "If only I could do this for children - how powerful would that be?!" Within 12 months she was the proud owner of a Tutor Doctor Franchise in Surrey, centred in Guildford and stretching to the M25 and M3.

Tutor Doctor - Doctor FranchiseIn just 2 years and 4 months, she has dealt with well over 500 young students who are now, not only better students attaining higher marks at school, they are also happier and more confident in themselves too – a skill for life.

For Alex, Tutor Doctor really is an extended family and this shines through when she says, “I haven’t yet met a colleague I wouldn’t gladly have as a friend; we are all motivated by the same passion to make a difference to others.”

Owning and running her Tutor Doctor franchise has been the biggest change for Alex since leaving corporate life. As an employed person, she was grateful for all the security and protection her role gave to her, but she did not have ownership of the overall role. Alex puts it best in her own words, “Now my future is down to me, the guaranteed security has gone but it has been replaced by something more wonderful and fulfilling: a genuine opportunity to do something that will positively influence a child’s life, and the feeling of Equal Business Stature with clients, fellow-franchisees and Head Office alike. My future is my own now, but with Tutor Doctor I’m guaranteed great company with truly decent people along the way".

Although Alex has overall responsibility for the running of her company and keeping the franchise standards high, she says that she couldn’t do this without the help of her husband Hugh who has a real talent and insight as an Education Consultant, and gets the young students to genuinely look forward to the starting of their tutoring with her team of certified tutors.

It is obvious from Alex’s enthusiasm that she clearly loves what she is doing and is not longing to return to corporate life, as far as she is concerned the only way is UP!
