About Choice Home Tutoring
Choice Home Tutoring, an Associate Member of the bfa, was founded in 2010. With two decades of experience in education in its local area of Manchester, the company saw a growing demand for experienced and reliable tutors to work with students in their homes and help learners of all ages fulfil their potential.
From the beginning, Choice Home Tutoring has worked hard to make the process of finding and appointing a well-qualified and effective tutor as easy as possible for customers – whether that’s parents and their children or older and mature students seeking tuition for themselves.
The company’s approach means every student is treated as an individual, while a commitment to providing exceptional tutoring that’s tailored to the individual has seen Choice Home Tutoring go from strength to strength. Just as important, the tutors who partner with the brand receive a level of support that is uncommon in this largely unregulated sector.
Today, Choice Home Tutoring is one of the largest providers of tuition services in Manchester and the surrounding area. It currently delivers over 1,000 lesson hours per month during critical academic periods, with over 150 tutors working across the network.
How does the Choice Home Tutoring franchise model work?
One-to-one tuition is the company’s core business. Choice Home Tutoring provides exceptional private one-to-one tuition to students of all ages, predominantly in their own homes.
The company covers all primary and secondary education subjects, including adult learners. It can help learners who need additional support with their studies or those who require greater challenges in order to push ahead. Choice Home Tutoring can also provide tuition for those who simply want to improve or refine their skills in a particular subject area.
Choice Home Tutoring gets to know all of its tutors personally, so it can provide the most suitable tutor for every student’s needs.
• Workshops and revision weeks: Choice Home Tutoring offers a variety of school holiday revision and weekend tuition workshops at primary and secondary levels. These aim to give students an intensive boost to learning and aid with exam preparation.
Workshops and revision weeks typically have a specific focus, covering everything from entrance exam tuition and revision techniques to primary level maths and English or specific subjects at GCSE and A-level.
• Specialist tuition: In addition to this core offering, Choice Home Tutoring also works with other agencies, such as schools and Premier League football clubs, to provide bespoke tuition for individuals or groups with unique requirements.
• Special educational needs: Choice Home Tutoring offers tutors who specialise in helping students with dyslexia, autism or other specific needs.
What type of franchisee is Choice Home Tutoring looking for?
First things first: you don’t need a background in teaching to become a franchisee.
Choice Home Tutoring is happy to hear from people from all professional backgrounds. What the company is looking for are intelligent and driven individuals who are professional in their approach to business and self-disciplined, organised and passionate about making their business a success.
It’s true that some familiarity with the education sector may be advantageous, but ultimately a Choice Home Tutoring franchise offers you the chance to harness your business skills and grow a successful franchise business that rewards the effort you put in.
Excellent communication and people skills are vital, as a large part of a franchisee’s role is building good relationships with clients and customers, as well as with their local network of tutors.
What training and support is provided to franchisees?
For your investment, you’ll receive a turnkey package to get your business up and running straight away.

Choice Home Tutoring will show you how to promote the business within your dedicated territory and how to comply with all the accountancy requirements of running the business.
The company will work closely with you to launch your business and ensure it is well acquainted with your territory. This valuable time will also provide an opportunity for Choice Home Tutoring to advise you on ways to attract both customers and tutors.
As a franchisee, you can be assured that Choice Home Tutoring will be with you every step of the way – from the initial stages of training to providing continual support as your business grows.
Does Choice Home Tutoring host discovery days?
Yes. A discovery day typically involves a two-three-hour meeting with the founders of the business, during which all aspects of the business opportunity are covered.
Choice Home Tutoring also touches on the financials and gives prospects the opportunity to ask any questions that they may have.
When can franchisees expect to turn a profit?
The business is run in a cash-positive position, in that customers pay four weeks in advance and then tutors are paid weekly.
Levels of profit will depend upon how fast the business grows. This is covered in detail during the discovery day and in subsequent meetings. Financial examples will be discussed in a discovery meeting and after confidentiality agreements are in place.
Are multi-unit opportunities available?
Yes, Choice Home Tutoring is looking for franchisees to be hands-on in the business, although there is no requirement for them to do any tutoring themselves.
Once proven, subsequent territories can be made available, subject to availability.
How much does it cost to become a Choice Home Tutoring franchisee?
The minimum investment is £17,500 (franchisee fee is £17,500), while working capital/set-up costs are £8,000. The total investment is £25,500.

What are the franchise terms of agreement and renewal?

Why is the Choice Home Tutoring franchise a good investment?
One of the many benefits of the role is that it allows you to operate from home, giving you full control over your work schedule and enabling you to enjoy the benefits of a flexible work-life balance.
Choice Home Tutoring’s growth and success have stemmed from its commitment to the high-quality and personalised approach that defines the company and everything it does - not just the tuition it provides, but the relationships that are forged with customers and the tutor network alike.
Choice Home Tutoring listens to feedback. The company believes that it’s only as successful as the quality of its tutors. In order to continually improve the service, Choice Home Tutoring constantly monitors tutor performance levels and relies heavily on customer feedback to help keep service levels high.
How in demand are the services provided by Choice Home Tutoring?
Education has become a big business and tutoring businesses have been flourishing over the last five to 10 years.
Private tuition is huge in the UK. More than one in four 11-16-year-olds have received private tuition and demand for extra-curricular support to help students achieve their learning potential continues to grow.
Demand has grown at a rapid pace in recent years and the UK market is now worth over £2bn, reflecting a growing desire among parents to ensure their children have every possible opportunity to succeed.
