Tutor Doctor has been dedicated to student development for over 10 years, offering preschool, kindergarten, elementary, high school, university, and adult programs. Our teaching methodology utilizes “one-on-one” learning and incorporates an understanding of different student learning styles.

Our platform is based on a tailored “one-on-one” approach that addresses the basic foundations of concepts learned. The program fills in missing bricks of academic concepts, consolidates that with current expectations, and then moves ahead to future requirements. Our special individualized programs give each student the best chance to achieve his or her academic goals. We look at the both foundational concepts and future concepts to ensure that each student is learning progressively.

One-on-one learning at home allows a student to develop and learn in the comfort of their own home. Because tutoring takes place in the student’s home, parents can more easily gauge how their children are responding to the program. Through regular support and motivation, the student builds his/her confidence, knowledge and skills. This in turn fosters better understanding of the concepts which ultimately results in better grades.

Our platform is designed to give students the ability to reach their maximum potential. We monitor each student through a variety of feedback channels and respond accordingly.

In 2003, the Tutor Doctor business model was made available to entrepreneurs who had a desire to empower students and at the same time take control of their own destiny.
