Leading Tutoring Franchise to Propel Emerging Franchisor’s Nationwide Development.

TORONTO Tutor Doctor, the leader in one-to-one private tutoring, is proud to announce they have acquired Massachusetts-based Code Wiz, an award-winning company that teaches students how to code. Through this alliance, Code Wiz will enjoy accelerated growth by utilizing the growth strategy and support structure that has propelled Tutor Doctor into becoming one of the nation’s leading tutoring franchises. Clear Summit Group, the parent company of Tutor Doctor, also brings over 25 years’ experience in helping brands scale – supporting Tutor Doctor in its expansion to 700-plus territories spanning 15 countries.

With a natural alignment in mission and values, the Tutor Doctor – Code Wiz partnership will allow both companies to take quantum leaps forward in achieving brand goals and reaching more students.

Founded in 2017, Code Wiz follows a customized student-driven style for teaching computer coding and robotics, combining top-tier technology with students’ individual creativity. The afterschool STEM program caters to children ages 7-17, helping them unlock their inner genius by learning to express their creativity through coding. Ruth Agbaji is the CEO, Founder, and Nerd-In-Chief who knows first-hand the power of learning to code. Born in Nigeria, Agbaji hacked her way into the world of computer science by teaching herself to code. After receiving her Masters in Computer Science from Tufts University, she worked as a software engineer for tech giants like Microsoft and Kronos before her entrepreneurial spirit kicked in. It was her desire to impact kids’ lives by sparking their interest in STEM that led Agbaji to quit her day job and launch the Code Wiz franchise system.

“With Tutor Doctor’s extensive experience in educational franchise management, Code Wiz will be able to plug-in to a proven business model and established structure that will propel the brand further into the world of franchising,” said Agbaji. “This partnership just made sense—Code Wiz’s goal is to support the next generation of geniuses, raising them up to be the next [Steve] Jobs. It’s not impossible in today’s society with all of the resources available. Tutor Doctor will be the fuel that helps Code Wiz launch to new heights.”

With five open locations and three in development, Code Wiz has established a reputation as the premier learn-to-code children’s education franchise, creating a center where an interactive and project-driven approach to technology inspires kids to unleash their imagination and reach their full-potential.

“When we heard about Ruth’s incredible story, saw what she had created in Code Wiz, and understood her passion in creating a purpose-driven business, our intentions became very clear,” said Frank Milner, President of Tutor Doctor. “This acquisition provides us the opportunity to add rocket fuel to our mission of changing the trajectory of students’ lives by bringing more diverse education to students around the world. There is a huge opportunity to fill a niche in the rapidly growing segment of the supplemental education market – and we’ve found an absolute perfect match with Ruth and the Code Wiz team.”

Tutor Doctor is an internationally renowned franchise with franchisees that have backgrounds spanning from education to business and more. In the past year, the franchise has welcomed 46 new franchisees, and awarded more than 70 new units, bringing the brand footprint to over 700 units across 15 countries – most recently opening its first territory in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). This growth is expected to continue as the brand looks to sign 80 units in 2021.

Global Tutoring Company Prepares for Surge in Online Tutoring

2020-03-13T12:20:46-04:00March 13th, 2020|Tags: , , , , , |

One-to-one Tutoring Program offers E-Learning Capabilities as Families Prepare for Coronavirus

TORONTO — As countries are working to contain the coronavirus and prevent its spread, concerns have quickly been turning to the health and safety of students in classrooms across the nation.  Medical experts have begun to coalesce around the importance of “social distancing” but what does this mean for the students across our country?  One global provider of online tutoring, Tutor Doctor, has begun to get a glimpse of where the coronavirus may be heading as it relates to education.

“We’ve already begun to see our online tutors and platform being used by students and families due to travel quarantines” said Frank Milner, President of Tutor Doctor. “Fortunately, our online platform is simple for tutors and students of any age to use.”

The company is already seeing a 120 percent increase in demand for online tutoring since news of the outbreak emerged.

“This is just the beginning and we can handle much higher demand spikes than this,” Milner stated. “But we’re not taking anything for granted. We are already in communication with our 94,000 tutors to ensure they’re well-prepared for what’s to come.”

Schools in China, the Middle East and Europe have or are beginning to consider suspending class.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is urging Americans to prepare for potential school closure due to the threat of outbreak in the United States. While this may be a direction taken to keep children healthy, it also interrupts children’s studies, social interaction, and academic progress which leaves families seeking alternatives.

Families are looking for more than just an online resource, but a true academic experience best fitting their children. Even in the online space, a tutor must know how to connect with their student, tailoring their program while continuously providing guidance and valuable learning skills.

Another valuable feature in online learning is the ability to record every session, so the student can review it later. This helps students retain information and refresh their memory before an important exam or assignment. Tutor Doctor’s education team found this feature especially valuable to students who may have their class schedule fragmented or interrupted for unforeseen circumstances, as it allows them to jump back in where they left off.
