How Tutor Doctor Got Started

It all began with a simple revelation—the classroom setting is often unable to sufficiently unlock the true learning potential of each student. Tutor Doctor was created 15 years ago to not just provide basic tutoring sessions that serve as another classroom, but provide personalized tutoring that takes into consideration each student’s unique learning style to empower students to achieve their full potential. This approach set Tutor Doctor apart in an educational industry that often fell into conformity.

We immediately produced success for students who had struggled with the rigid educational system and similar tutoring services. We realized our services helped individuals regain their confidence when it came to learning—something we wanted to share with students globally!
