Rob and Lynne Kerrison, owners of Tutor Doctor Cambridge, are celebrating after being crowned ‘Franchisee of the Year’ at the brand’s annual global conference.

Chosen from all of the Tutor Doctor franchises worldwide – which marks more than 500 – the Kerrisons were awarded for “their unwavering commitment and ongoing contributions to the network whilst simultaneously forging one of the most successful single unit Tutor Doctor franchises”.

Said to be the fastest growing in-home tutoring franchise, Tutor Doctor provides one-to-one tutoring, directly into the home either in person or via its online learning platform.

Instead of trying to impose a single style and method of learning, the brand’s ethos is that with personal, tailored assistance, everyone can learn.

The Kerrisons became franchisees for the chain in 2010 and have since worked with over 2,000 families in Cambridge, have partnered with 15 local schools to provide one-to-one tutoring support outside the classroom, and have a network of 200 tutors working with them.

For the last four years their Cambridge business has ranked in the top five Tutor Doctor franchises in the word, and has recently been awarded preferred provider status with Cambridge County Council. 47 of of its tutors were also nominated for the 2018 National Tutor of the Year awards.

Speaking of their global award win at the chain’s ‘Dream, Believe, Achieve’ conference in Canada, Rob Kerrison commented:

“We’re delighted and so proud to have been recognised for our efforts. We’re incredibly passionate about what we do and we genuinely care about the students, the families and the tutors that we work with. And I think it shows.”

Tutor Doctor is looking for other budding entrepreneurs to follow in the Kerrison’s footsteps and make a daily impact in student’s lives while building profitable businesses.

The home tutoring chain has franchise opportunities available for a cost of £29,700 and claims some of its franchisees are generating annual turnover of up to £850,000, with a 55% gross and 25% net profit.
