As a Prep Academy Tutors franchise owner, I have the consistent support of our founders and autonomy to run my business with a personal touch. Carly and Adrian are very passionate about their business and about supporting franchisees. It’s a business that’s family oriented and family run, which is perfect because we’re all working with the most important part of a family here, the children.

I did my due diligence before signing the final documents and even went quite far down the road with a major competitor. That competitor felt like a machine. I was ‘processed’ and they wanted their clients to be ‘processed’ in much the same way. Prep Academy Tutors isn’t like that, it’s a very personal approach to a professional business opportunity. Carly and Adrian really enjoy what they do and work very hard at it. Prep Academy Tutors is becoming a big brand in tutoring.





Tutoring is becoming an essential part of a child’s education and owning this franchise has allowed me to continue to help students become well-educated members of our society. We recognize that a child’s learning is maximized when there’s a healthy and secure relationship between tutor and student.

Prep Academy Tutors stands behind this principle as a key building block to company success. Any smart person wanting to work in this industry would look to get involved with a company that puts their student’s first. That’s why I chose to start a franchise with them. I find running my own business gives me the ability to enjoy flexible hours. It’s the perfect balance for this working Mom.













I enjoy working with parents to ensure the academic needs of their children are being met and I am lucky to have a team of exceptional teachers who are inspiring to work with. They are dedicated to developing each child’s full learning potential and as a result, we see academics improve and children become more confident. I find it very rewarding!

Prep Academy Tutors offers a high level of service to all of their clients. As a franchisee, it is an incredibly supportive environment with team of dedicated professionals and inspiring individuals to work with. What I love, is that I am learning, growing and making a difference in children’s lives everyday.


This company and its people are open to new and cutting edge programs and up-to-date with educational needs. We have established an outstanding reputation, which helps a franchisee when you are looking to find new clients and recruit teachers. There’s really not another tutoring service that is comparable.

“The founders are authentic, supportive and current with all educational pedagogy”

I enjoy working with students and families (not a cookie cutter approach) to make a meaningful impact in their lives and reconnect home and school. It’s a business opportunity that has work/life balance and the founders are authentic, supportive and current with all educational pedagogy and trends. This is a tutoring service above and beyond what is in the current marketplace.
