Tutor Doctor provides affordable one-on-one supplementary education to students and adults through offering in-home tutoring to families.
About 10 years ago, John Hooi had a simple idea and a desire to make a difference. He wondered why parents had to adjust their family’s busy schedules and drive half way across town just to put their child in another classroom with more kids…when in fact it was the classroom experience that their child was struggling with in the first place.
Over the last 10 years, the Tutor Doctor vision has taken shape. In 2003 the company turned to franchising as a way of expanding the company’s impact and meeting the vast market demand. Our team has grown substantially since this time.
Now with offices internationally, the Tutor Doctor vision is becoming a reality as the lives of students and their families are being positively impacted.
Brian FitzGerald is the Owner/Education Consultant for Tutor Doctor Vancouver. Brian taught ESL in Japan for almost 4 years before returning to Canada. While the work started out as a short-term “experience” it developed into a significant life-changing period in his life, learning about another culture and people while helping them communicate in English.
He went on to a career in Project Management and Operations with Best Buy/Future Shop, most recently as the Director of Operations for the online photofinishing business. His work included rolling out a variety of programs that included training for head office and store staff.
“I was drawn to Tutor Doctor due the values, commitment and experience of the management team and other owners across the country. These were people who really embraced founder John Hooi’s philosophy: It’s one thing to make a dollar and another to make a difference.”
“I also believe that one-on-one tutoring is beneficial to maximize results. And for parents to have one less event to coordinate; the in-home component saves them time, working around their schedule.”
Brian’s focus is to build a business that is known for the quality of the people involved and a sincere approach focused on strong customer service.
“Everything starts with the unique needs of the student. That’s why our free in-home consultation can be so powerful. By taking the time to understand the student’s learning style and areas of concern, we can find a ‘magical match’ with a tutor that will work well with the student.”
Please give the Tutor Doctor Vancouver team a call for a FREE in-home consultation to determine what educational support is needed and put a plan together to get the student on the right track.
