TUITION BUSINESS FOR SALE
OFFERS IN REGION OF £70,000
A successful, independent and very well respected business, located in the south of Co.Durham. Established in 2006 it provides additional tuition in English, maths and science for students from the age of six, in a safe and focused environment. All students have their own individual study programme. These can include:
- Literacy and numeracy
- 11+ and private school entrance exam preparation
- Preparation for Key Stage 2 SATs
- KS3 Support
- GCSE English, English literature, maths and chemistry
- Dyslexia and Dyscalculia support
- Summer schools
The centre is situated in rented town centre premises with convenient parking and two loading bays, so parents are able to drop students off safely. The premises consist of a large, bright teaching area, a kitchen and two toilets.
The teaching space is well equipped and has storage, a comfortable seating area for parents and a network of 12 computers. Eight of the computers and a new server were purchased in December 2011 and have a five year warranty. Whilst some of the resources used are internet based and access is purchased annually there is also an extensive range of licensed, up to date software, power points and resources on the network. Licenses have been purchased for a number of educational internet sites that run into 2016.
The tuition centre has an excellent reputation in the town. Local schools now refer parents/students to us, liaise with us and on one occasion purchased our services for a term for one of their students. The majority of our students come through recommendation or siblings but we have also advertised consistently in the town so our name is well known.
Unlike many other tuition centres the tuition centre is, and has always been, independent; no franchise fees are payable. Franchise fees in some tuition centres cream off 15-25% of the profits. The annual turnover of the business is over £80,000.
It has been a successful and growing business throughout the recession and is ready to take full advantage of the improving financial situation to expand further.
The centre could be run under sole ownership by an owner/tutor, employing additional associate tutors on a self-employed basis, as required. Or to be run by an owner/manager employing associate tutors as required.
An owner tutor can earn £35,000+ p.a.
An owner manager could see returns of £17,000+ (24%)
This is a genuine retirement sale and there is plenty of scope to expand the business. At the moment there are no tuition sessions on Fridays or Sundays and only one session for science (chemistry) at KS4. There have been many requests for other sciences, English as a foreign language, languages at all levels and ‘A’ level maths and sciences. Parents from other ethnic backgrounds would be keen to have lessons on Sundays.
The vendors offer an initial handover and training period and phone/email advice and consultancy for a further three months .
