There will be fewer “math meltdowns” and other homework headaches now that Tutor Doctor the fastest growing “at home” tutoring franchise worldwide is being introduced to the Nigerian market. Tutor Doctor, a rapidly expanding one-to-one tutoring service designed to help students at various ages, has announced the opening of a new franchise location in Lagos, offering the community and students a private, easy way to catch-up or get ahead in school. Tutor Doctor of Nigeria was launched last Wednesday in Lagos.
The demand for tutoring has drastically evolved due to a myriad of reasons including the adoption of new technologies, rising student enrolments, intense competition among students, inability of standard education systems to address the unique needs of each student, lack of teaching staff at schools, and out-dated school infrastructural facilities. Tutor Doctor has come to address these issues.
Tutor Doctor uses a variety of well- known books and educational materials to supplement customized programs, but the franchise primarily leverages the curriculum and text the student is currently working with to ensure the most relevant tutoring is provided. Tutor Doctor also works with students’ current teacher to ensure that they are meeting both the student’s and teacher’s expectations. Nigerian students stand to gain significant value from Tutor Doctor.
‘’We look forward to assisting students in achieving their educational goals with programmes that are specifically designed to fit the needs of each individual. One-to-one tutoring ensures that each student is being given the utmost attention and tools for success. It also gives our tutors the satisfaction of seeing their students’ progress. We can’t wait to start helping students reach their full potential,” said the Regional Manager Tutor Doctor Nigeria, Ignatius Inyang.
In addition to providing school-age students with tutoring in various subjects, many families also hire Tutor Doctor to help students get ahead and prepare for more advanced challenges, such as Honours classes that could help them get into a preferred college or university. Tutor Doctor also caters for pupils or students with special needs. Tutor Doctor has proven valuable for the rapidly growing home-schooled population, as well as for seniors and professionals wanting to learn new technology skills.
Tutor Doctor was founded in 2000 as an alternative to the ‘’one-to-many’’ teaching model most extra-curricular learning centres offer by providing a personalised one-to-one, in-home tutoring service to students. The company quickly grew and in 2003 turned to franchising as a way of expanding her impact and meeting the vast market demand. Now with offices internationally in various parts of the world, the Tutor Doctor vision is becoming a reality as the lives of students and their families are being positively impacted throughout the world.
