Tutor Doctor – Why Work With Us?


Family, parents and students

Making a Difference in Lives Through Education

At the core of everything we do is company values. Every franchise location, team member, and tutor lives by these values. We believe that by living out these values with our mission in mind, we are able to reach students in a more meaningful way—beyond the boundaries of the classroom.

Our Mission

The mission of Tutor Doctor is to change the trajectory of students’ lives. 

Our Values

  • Understanding: We begin by presuming the goodwill of others. We seek first to hear, not tell. To empathise, not criticise. To know before we do.
  • Curiosity: We demonstrate the power of learning by learning. We’re interested and inquisitive, looking beyond what is to what could be.
  • Ingenuity: We imagine, create, devise and design. We fashion, we fit, and we form. We do what it takes to meet the needs of those we serve.
  • Ownership: We're accountable for all that we do. We step up and seek responsibility. We own our work and earn our results.
  • Grit: We don’t quit.



At Tutor Doctor, we work with some of the happiest and most satisfied tutors in the business, and it's easy to see why:

The Lifestyle Choice

When you become a tutor, you're in the driver’s seat. You get to set your own schedule and work around what’s important in your life. We take care of the details so that you can focus on what's important... helping your student. 

The 'A-ha' Moment

Making a difference in a student's life is what it's all about. Seeing a student achieve their "a-ha moment" is why tutors love working with us. We make sure that you are perfectly matched with the student, so you can not only get to that “a-ha moment”, but have fun getting there too. 

The Alliance

You're more than just a tutor. Through living our core values you have the opportunity to connect to something bigger. We're with you every step of the way to help you grow as a person and in your career.

Experience the Tutor Doctor Difference

Unlike some tutoring services, Tutor Doctor treats each student like a unique individual. We know that every child, teenager, and adult has different learning styles, and that all thinking caps can be tailored. That is why the tutors we work with sit down with the student and family to develop a programme that fits their specific needs and learning abilities. Our process is unique, focusing on the student’s areas of weakness and approach to learning.

Our tutoring services have helped more than 200,000 people around the globe. How do we do this? We continually implement the best strategies and techniques for students to grow and develop their academic abilities. More than that, we implement our proven process to ensure your investment in your child’s education is maximised.

Knowledge + Discipline = Success

Tutor Doctor's X-Skills allows us to create a unique academic game plan for every student and coach them through the process of achieving academic success.

Overcoming Educational Challenges One Session at a Time

Our process includes the following steps:

  • Assess: We start with a free consultation where we can assess your child’s needs and create a customised programme for their academic goals.
  • Match: Tutor Doctor utilises an advanced matching system that pairs your child with a qualified tutor who fits their educational needs and personality!
  • Tutor: Personalised tutoring involves a curriculum designed for each specific student. That means your child will get help with homework and assistance filling in the gaps so they are confident in the classroom.
  • Support: We’re with you every step of the way. We make sure to follow up on our services, keeping your family in the loop and checking in with regular session reports on how your child is doing.

"The opportunity to help someone to experience a mental break through. I love when a student has an "aha" moment."

- R. Brown

"I like that I feel like I am making a difference in someone's life. My student feels like he is learning and more able to meet his goals. I also love that the schedule is flexible."

- C. Francis

"Working for Tutor Doctor is awesome. The staff are all very attentive and caring, the scheduling is flexible, the pay is good, and the students and families I get to work with are all incredible. There is no doubt in my mind that I made the right decision choosing to work for Tutor Doctor."

- G. Castillo

" I think it's a great platform to begin any kind of teaching profession. As someone, who wants to pursue a teaching career at a university one day (hopefully, get a PhD!), I love that I get to exercise my skills and passion. I also like that the Tutor Doctor system is so streamlined: no fusses or miscommunication, which makes everything efficient and simple. (It also doesn't hurt that the team seems super lovely)."

- S. Shaikh

" I really appreciate the "teamwork" attitude/philosophy Tutor Doctor communicates. I feel valued and supported based upon the flexibility of being able to set my own hours and work schedule… I have been provided the opportunity to develop positive relationships with students and parents, while still teaching full time. I would highly recommend Tutor Doctor to anyone interested in becoming a tutor/learning coach, as well as to anyone who is in need of tutoring services."

- S. Lullie
