There’s never been a better time to enter this recession-proof industry! Franchise owners are desperately needed across the country to “match” local tutors with students. Club Z! offers in home and online tutoring in all subjects and grade levels. Because our Corporate Call Center does all the initial selling, including accepting the payment from customers, franchises can operate the business part-time, full-time or even remotely.
Club Z! is a national in-home and online tutoring company that has over 400 franchised locations throughout North America.
Our owners don’t tutor or teach. They manage a staff of tutors that provide one-on-one instruction for students in the comfort and convenience of the student’s home or ONLINE at an extremely competitive rate. Franchise owners receive all the initial training and ongoing support they need to feel confident about operating our successful business model. If you have a desire to start a business of your own, follow a proven plan, and want to team up with an industry leader, then Club Z! could be for you.
The pandemic has accelerated the already huge demand for tutoring. Even before the Pandemic, the global tutoring market was projected to reach $218 billion dollars by 2027. The Online tutoring market is projected to double in the next five years. For so many children, distance learning has failed and parents now realize that they have to take matters into their own hands by hiring private tutors.
Club Z! focuses on the actual school work that students face on a day to day basis. The learning centers don’t offer homework assistance or allow their teachers to assist students with their current classroom work. Now more than ever before, parents are looking for tutors that can help their students with homework help, prepping for the next quiz or test or just giving the student a clearer understanding of the subject matter. This unique approach is why Club Z! is recommended by thousands of schools and hundreds of thousands of families across the country.
Our franchise owners never miss out on an opportunity to provide tutoring or test prep services to clients in need. Club Z! franchise owners can provide the following highly effective tutoring options to your community.
