Our PhilosophyAbout 10 years ago, John Hooi had a simple idea and a desire to make a difference. He wondered why parents had to adjust their family's busy schedules and drive halfway across town just to put their child in another classroom with more kids...when in fact it was the classroom experience that their child was struggling with in the first place. John wondered....
- What if a tutor could come directly to the child's home to deliver tutoring services instead of fragmenting a family's precious time together by forcing parents to act as "taxi drivers"?
- What if there was flexibility in the tutor's schedule so that tutoring time slots could be scheduled to accommodate a family's busy schedule?
- What if a tutor could develop a personalized program by working with the child's existing homework and school curriculum instead of loading more standard textbook work on an already overwhelmed child?
- What if average families could get access to top tutoring resources sometimes reserved only for wealthier families?
These questions and more were eventually answered through the development of the Tutor Doctor program. Over the last 10 years, the Tutor Doctor vision has taken shape. In 2003 the company turned to franchising as a way of expanding the company's impact and meeting the vast market demand. Now with offices internationally, the Tutor Doctor vision is becoming a reality as the lives of students and their families are being positively impacted. The service caters to busy families by accommodating their schedules, while at the same time offering a superior tutoring choice which individualizes each student's learning program and embraces the existing curriculum. When combined, their unique approach to tutoring helps each child master current academic requirements, while also maximizing his/her potential.
