Tutordoctor.com has been in the tutoring business for a number of years, and has offices all over the U.S. and Canada. While it began strictly as a localized in-person service, it has now expanded into online tutoring as well. Its website is quite comprehensive and even promotes franchise opportunities. Tutor Doctor does not act as a single entity. Rather, each location is owned and operated separately. To provide a good TutorDoctor review, we obviously studied the entire website, contacted the toll-free number with lots of detailed questions, read the onsite testimonials, and sought out customer reviews posted on the web – both on social media and review websites.
Tutor Doctor services
Tutor Doctor provides in-person and online tutoring for students at all levels of study and in all curricular areas. In some instances, it also provides adult tutoring and professional development, veterans educational programs, test prep, and a summer program to keep students on track while they have a lengthy time off. Students or parents request tutoring and specify the details of the need. The company then assigns an appropriate tutor, and the student and tutor set up their own schedule and location for the services.
Quality of Products/Writers
TutorDoctor does not provide any products, and, while it does provide writing help, no tutor is supposed to actually write student assignments for them.
In terms of quality, we took into account what customers have had to say about their experiences. While the on-site feedback is all positive, this is not the case with reviews that are posted elsewhere on the web. It is a mixed bag. And just like with all tutoring services, there are great, good, and poor tutors.
While we can certainly say that Tutor Doctor is not a fraud or scam, we caution customers to beware that not all assigned tutors are equal in their performance. If the “fit” doesn’t seem right in the very beginning, contact the company and request another.
Prices and Payment Options
Tutor Doctor prices are not published on the site, and for good reason. They can vary office by office, depending upon geographic location and going rates in those locations.
Customers pay in advance for a set number of tutoring hours, and then are billed as they go along. Payments are of all standard types – bank cards, debit cards, checks, even PayPal.
Customers will not find published discounts, promo codes, or any type of coupon code for discounted pricing. Local franchises may run such specials, and it seems that some do offer discounted pricing for long-term customers
Nothing is free with Tutor Doctor. End of story.
The national corporation does have a BBB membership, but there are some complaints on file with that organization that is localized. As we look at pros & cons, we have to say that the company has a well-established procedure in place for hiring tutors and for contracting with customers. Beyond that, a big “con” is the lack of universal quality control. Students get all levels of quality from great to terrible. For this reason, our overall Tutor doctor rating is “Fair.”
