It is hard to believe that it is almost a year ago that my husband Tim and I attended Franchise Training as new franchisees, and now, I am returning to attend Franchise training as a mentor.  What an exciting journey it has been.

As I reflect back over the last year, I take pride and joy in what I have accomplished.  I am also very thankful and appreciative of the tremendous support I have received from Dr. Thalheimer, Franchise Support, my Franchise Mentor, and the fabulous easy to follow System.  Without this support, I would not be enjoying the tremendous difference The Tutoring Center, Flower Mound, Texas is making for so many children and their parents in our community.

Although I had successfully worked in corporate America for 27 years, I had no idea how to open and run a business, but The Tutoring Center Franchise has made that possible for me.  It is incredible to see that it is not just one thing, or one person, that has contributed to our success, but a combination of : 

  • The step by step process and support we received to open our center including a list of incredible venders who knew exactly what we needed
  • The Franchise Support Team who quickly addressed my questions or concerns
  • The ongoing training we received on The System and The Marketing Plan provided by Dr. Thalheimer
  • The consistent support of my Franchise Mentor who answered all of those ongoing daily questions we had and who shared in our excitement and joy as our center has grown
  • The great student materials and Dr. Thalheimer’s “Rotational Approach to Learning”, combined with our fabulous tutors continually has our students looking forward to coming to The Tutoring Center while consistently improving their academic skills and their confidence
  • The continual development and delivery of Best Practices from Dr. Thalheimer
  • The time to participate in and be part of the local community
  • The Franchise’s guiding principles of Integrity, Quality, Enthusiasm, Service and Teamwork
  • The feeling of being part of a team and not being alone in this endeavor

I applaud Dr. Thalheimer for creating a complete comprehensive process to contribute to the success of his Franchisees.  It is like being part of a family who gives us the support we need to make it on our own, and it has allowed me to make a dream of mine come true.   I now get to spend my time making a positive difference in the lives of children.  Just the other day I had a parent tell me: “We had tried everything to help our daughter to read.  We had her tested for dyslexia, and when the results came back negative, we just did not know what to do.  Then, we enrolled her at The Tutoring Center.  We just received her report card, and she went from C’s to A’s in reading, and best of all, her confidence is up, she’s happy, and she loves going to The Tutoring Center.”  The difference we make for families is my dream come true!  Thank you Dr. Thalheimer and The Tutoring Center!

After 24 years of corporate experience I was ready to start a business of my own and I evaluated several franchisees last year.   As parents and educators , education is our passion and after school tutoring was on top of our list.  We had a strict criteria for selecting a business and only The Tutoring Center made the cut because of its programs, systems, and financial business model.  The Math, Reading, Writing, Study Skills, Enrichment, and SAT/ACT test preparation programs offer much needed tutoring services for students in kindergarten to High School.  The systematic checklist process for opening the center was well done and we did not have any problem working through the checklist to open our center.  The support staff responded to our questions on time and the training prepared us well for the opening.   We didn’t have to invent anything, everything related to programs and systems was in place and every element of the TTC system is focused on delivering quality programs and best service to the parents and children.   I especially love the enrollment process because it is very structured and it provides all the tools necessary to understand the child, engage the parent, answer all the parent’s questions, outline the customer service policies, and best of all make the life of a Center Director much easier.  We recently opened our center at Johns Creek, GA and we continue to get excellent support from the support team and our assigned mentor.   The mentor program has helped me tremendously as it has expedited my learning curve and I am able to implement best practices much faster to achieve my financial goals.   On top of all this the whole family is benefiting as my daughter has enrolled in the math program, my nephew is enrolled in the writing program, and my son is an intern tutor at the center.
