I googled math tutors in the area and found Tutor Doctor. I called to tell them that my daughter needed immediate tutor, prior to her math test that was in a few days. I was assured that they could help me. We set up an appointment for an assessment the following day. I was told that they schedule 2 hours but it really only takes an hour. Once they told me it was an assessment, I expressed concern that we needed to start tutoring right away. They assured me again that they could make that happen. The assessor arrived the following day and sat down with my husband and daughter for 2 hours to both sell them an on-going program and get to know my daughter's needs in order for them to find a suitable tutor who would start IN ABOUT 12 BUSINESS DAYS. I called the company and left repeated messages but of course, they didn't call me back. The poor assessor got an earful from me when he very kindly called me a month later to follow up.
I am warning individuals not to proceed with this company. I was promised a 100% satisfaction guarantee or money back within 60 days. Our tutor was completely unqualified, and was not able to engage our 12-year-old son. As a result, I opted to withdraw from the program. Instead, the company charged me over $250 in hidden non-refundable fees. Needless to say, I would not recommend this company to anyone and please beware of hidden fees in fine print that are not discussed at the get-go.
So I signed up for Tutor Doctor on October 1, 2018. We have completed three classes and I have been charged $394 for these three classes because I decided to cancel the contract within the first three classes because the tutor did not show up for a class or even bothered to notify me and then when I did send the manager message about the tutor not showing up I still haven’t received any reply. But if a family decides not to have the tutor within 24 hours they will be billed but I guess for the customer it doesn’t matter. It’s a one-way road with this tutoring system. Also most of the 3 hours that the tutor was there for was a total waste of money.
Finally after 4 months of requesting the finally refunded the funds today to my account. It only took making official complaints for them to make notice. They did offer a sincere apology for how long it took.
Beware when prepaying for tutoring through the Tutor Doctor. They require you to prepay for tutoring hours by purchasing a package of hours. My first package was 36 hours plus a registration fee which was $2030.00. When I completed my hours I was contacted to purchased additional hours to continue. I purchased 25 hours at $55/hour and 6 days after they took my final payment I found out they were closing my local branch as the owner is going bankrupt. I had only used 3.5 hours.
The local branch confirmed they owed me $1182.50. The headquarters in Canada has promised to work on getting me a refund. It has been since July 25th 2017 and I still have yet to see a refund or a date when they will send one. The fact is the main company will not be accountable for their local branch, you could be forking over thousands of dollars and risking that the local branch will shut down without notice leaving you begging for your money back. It has been nearly 3 months and I have not been sent the refund I am owed.
I really would encourage others to really use this service the Tutor Doctor. It has been of really great overall value to me and has helped me a great deal. I would really tell others that the price of this company is very fair and I would highly recommend this company to others as well. The price is a great overall deal. The quality of this company the Tutor Doctor is very high and they are very professional and also very helpful and knowledgeable. The teaching style of this company is very authentic as well as helpful to me and they use a distinct and easy to understand and use teaching and learning method.

Tutors are always worth the money. Make me happy that I hire them. Good value, excellent knowledge and good price. Could not have done it without them. Thank you so much. I have encountered other sites with less pricing but this one is ok. Perhaps lower it a bit could help with finances. It is good quality. I can't complain about my tutors. They were great and awesome. They were incredibly nice and responsible. Very similar to what I get in school but more in depth. Made me like them more and always come back for more tutoring time. Also they go over what you can't understand so good.
This is a great service. I used Tutor Doctor in Orange County when I needed a reading tutor for my elementary daughter. It has been so hard to find the right tutor who fit our schedule. And I had a bad experience with other tutors who committed and then flaked so I was back to square one looking for a new tutor. They have great tutors who show up and if the tutor does move on, they quickly find another one. And the price for in-home tutoring is competitive to some of the learning centers where I have to drive and then she was in a group situation. Is now getting 90% and higher on all quizzes and tests. The one on one makes a huge difference and she can ask questions and get ALL of them answered. She is now able to do her homework with less frustrations and the stress is gone. They are truly "world class" and I would recommend their services to anyone seeking personalized tutoring focused solely on the student's success.
Finally found a great tutor and am very pleased. Great website, easy payments making process, extremely good too! Affordable price for tutor doctor! Tutors respond in a timely manner whether or not they are comfortable with your subject. My tutor knows his subject and was very helpful. To the point, super patient and understanding and most of all - he knew all the material backwards and forwards. Understands all the nuances of teaching and learning math and inspired my daughter to love math even more.
Very nice for people on a budget. If you have a limited budget, Tutor Doctor offers services that don't break your bank. I was able to afford the service of Tutor Doctor without having to get another job or worry about bills needing to get paid. It was super helpful. I was able to learn a lot with Tutor Doctor. They have a lot of different services you can learn about. I can't wait to try them again. I love to learn! The teaching style of tutor doctor was great because it was easy to catch on and easy to catch up. I highly recommend Tutor Doctor to anyone that needs a tutor.
