THE TUTORING CENTER Franchise Opportunity

Education and after-school learning is one of the most important growth industries in the United States.... even if the economy is not doing as well as it should. Helping children in your community achieve academic success, motivation, and confidence is an incredibly rewarding experience and continues to be one of the most important issues facing our country.

The U.S. educational market is second only to health care as a percentage of gross national product now exceeding $700 billion. Tremendous profit potential exists for the private sector to provide outside supplemental services and can take advantage of the growing student population while at the same time finding ways to streamline the inefficiency that exists in schools today.

Newsweek Poll "42% of Americans believe there is a great need for private outside tutoring."
