Above Grade Level Franchise Transforming Tutoring Industry: A Smart Investment with High Purpose

Above Grade Level offers a higher value franchise opportunity at a lower cost than its competitors. The market is much broader for this home-based business than it is with a fixed retail learning center location in a shopping center.

    MORGANVILLE, NJ, April 30, 2010 /24-7PressRelease/ -- In-home tutoring is a highly fragmented industry, dominated by teachers, college students and local companies. Only a couple of national brands exist, but they have no curriculum or true methods. They resemble matchmakers by putting together students and tutors, which is precisely what Above Grade Level doesn't do!

"At the center of everything we do are our methods and teaching materials," said Daniel Herrick, Executive Director of Above Grade Level. "We assess each student to determine a custom course outline for them using our teaching materials. Other tutoring services often fail because they don't assess students accurately and don't have true teaching materials. They essentially provide homework help -- a 'one-size-fits-all' approach."

Above Grade Level's curriculum helps children, K through 12, live up to their classroom potential. With over $1,000,000 in development, the company's winning program helps children succeed, parents be happier and franchisees be successful. The program works so well, the students' improvement is guaranteed.

"Our teaching materials set us apart from the competition, and have successfully supported tens of thousands of students over 25 years," Herrick said. "We provide professional, one-to-one, personalized instruction in all subjects as well as SAT/PSAT preparation, gifted student enrichment and summer programs."

Above Grade Level was launched in late 2009 as a direct reaction to the evolution of the tutoring industry and economy. The franchise is new but comes from a long history of very successful learning centers and highly-experienced senior management.

"We're a newer franchise, but we're not new to franchising and certainly not new to the tutoring industry," said Herrick. "We've been involved with retail tutoring center franchises for many years. That's why we developed a home-based franchise that's affordable, marketable and easily-managed."

Above Grade Level is a logical extension of retail tutoring centers, and overcomes many issues in today's franchise market, such as financing and leases. It offers a lower investment than competitors and a higher value. There's no storefront, furnishings or other exorbitantly expensive items formerly associated with operating a learning center.

No experience is necessary. Franchisees receive up to three weeks of training, offered as a distance learning program to eliminate the need for extended travel. They learn how to run a successful business and find qualified tutors, who meet with students either in the student's home, an after-school setting, church or library. Franchisees also receive ongoing support and access to the extensive library of proprietary teaching products and materials.

"You can be fully operational in your exclusive territory for under $40,000, including the franchise fee," Herrick said. "This is a smart investment with high purpose, low overhead and very short ramp-up time. From the time you sign the franchise agreement to being operational can be less than 30 days."
