Don't Let The Word “Tutoring” Fool You

Jane Ross Revenue Sources (2023)

Franchise revenue sources

For most people, the word tutoring conjures up an image of a teacher working with a student in a one-on-one setting. That type of training is certainly one service offered by Jane Ross Tutoring; however, private tutoring is only a fraction of our annual revenue. In fact, in 2023, private tutoring made up only 2% of total income for our home office.

The unique factor in our business model is that we sell test prep services not only to parents and students but also to schools and districts. That additional level of services sets Jane Ross Tutoring apart from other test prep and tutoring agencies.

The overwhelming majority of our revenue comes from our valuable partnerships with area school leaders who bring us to their location to teach workshops on site. In any given year, we teach several school-based workshops to groups ranging from 25 students to 400+ students.

Schools pay for these services in a variety of ways: Some pass the costs to parents while others pay for the entire workshop using school funds, community grants, or federal programs.

In addition to student workshops, we provide school-based services such as teacher professional development, educational consulting, and practice testing for students. The unique business model developed by Jane Ross Tutoring works—for our customers and for our franchisees!

Our Students Are Our Successes

The mission of Jane Ross Tutoring is to improve access to higher education for all students through its unique tutoring approach in partnership with local schools, districts, and families. This student-focused approach means that we measure company success in terms of our students’ success.

Connor is an outstanding example of a student who changed his college trajectory after participating in our training. On his first ACT, he scored a 16 without any prep. After working with a Jane Ross instructor, he scored a 21 on the next test. He then enrolled in the Jane Ross Tutoring Online ACT Course and ultimately earned a 24.

Connor’s mom emailed us to report that his latest score secured a $2,500 college scholarship each year for four years. His ACT improvement netted him $10,000 in scholarships, proving yet again that higher scores open doors!

Connor is just one example of the thousands of students who improved their college options after working with the highly effective instructors of Jane Ross Tutoring. Countless success stories like these fuel our company passion for helping students open doors to a better future.

We are an emerging franchise, but we are a proven winner.

We are an emerging franchise, but we are a proven winner. While 2020 was our first year to begin franchising, our home office in Memphis, Tennessee, has been operating successfully—and profitably—since its founding in 1979. With over 40 years of experience as a tutoring and test prep agency, we are now offering our proven business model to franchisees who want in on the ground floor of our expansion.

The tutoring and test prep business is rewarding in more ways than one.

First, operating a tutoring agency can be very profitable. The Jane Ross Tutoring home office consistently generates revenues in excess of a quarter of a million dollars every year—and that’s with only two part-time employees and a handful of affiliated tutors and instructors. Our business model includes multiple revenue streams with some online options that have been extremely productive during the global pandemic.

Second, training students to improve their scores on college readiness tests is very gratifying. We love working with students to improve their access to college and scholarships. Making a difference in the lives of high school students and their families fuels our passion.

You can be part of this life-changing work!

Our passion for training students extends to training franchisees.

Jane Ross Tutoring will provide franchisees with approximately one week of initial training at our home office in Memphis, Tennessee. The training will cover administrative, operational, sales, and marketing topics. It will also include the necessary modeling that demonstrates how to deliver the proprietary Jane Ross student workshops. This training will be provided for the franchisee and up to two other team members.

After the initial training in our home office, on-site training typically takes place when the franchisee commences operations of the franchise. An experienced representative from Jane Ross Tutoring will provide on-site training for a period of up to three days to assist the franchisee in opening the new location. On-site training and support from a Jane Ross Tutoring staff member will continue beyond the location’s opening; the franchisee can count on frequent visits in the first couple of years in operation.

If schedules allow, Jane Ross Tutoring will even send an experienced instructor to the franchisee’s new location to teach the first workshop. This will allow the franchisee and other team members to see the workshop presentation first-hand with student participants.

In addition to the initial training, franchisees will attend up to two sessions per year, which will include refresher training and ideas for improving various aspects of the business operations. We will provide the opportunity for franchisees to send additional personnel to refresher training. This training will be provided at no cost, with the exception of applicable travel expenses.

The initial investment is minimal. The possibilities are unlimited.

Jane Ross Tutoring is franchising the company’s operations in order to duplicate the business model in new markets and to expand the organization’s market footprint throughout the United States. The initial investment required to open a location is attractive — a franchisee could begin earning a return on investment within months of opening.
