Lesley Nicol is the owner of a Tutor Doctor Franchise in London. At time of this case study, she had a database of 300 qualified Tutor's, as well as 2 Education Consultants that provide free at-home consultations for students and families in the Greater London area.
Lesley had a back ground in Counselling, Management as well as Education but this is not an absolute requirement of the Tutor Doctor franchise. She chose Tutor Doctor because she was attracted to the service that it offered.
As she says, “I felt that my previous experience was tangible enough to manage the business, and I needed a new focus and direction. Tutor Doctor offered me this.”
At the time of reaching 18 months in business, Lesley already had over 300 clients across London.
So what has changed the most in her life, since becoming part of Tutor Doctor:
“The major change is that I have more control of my present and current future, although I still have to work very hard to reach my personal goals. When I get the call that a student has improved in their learning and reached a new target, the hard work is all worth it.”
