Choice Home Tutoring Franchise Opportunity

Private tuition is big business in the UK. More than one in four 11-16 year olds have worked with a private tutor at some point. Demand for tuition has grown at a rapid pace in recent years and the UK market is now worth over £2bn. When it comes to choosing a tutor, reputation is everything. Choice Home Tutoring is trusted by thousands of students and our commitment to delivering first-class, personalised tuition is what defines us. The Good Schools Guide describes us as ‘the go-to agency for hourly tuition for families; speedy, professional and flexible’.

About us

Choice Home Tutoring was founded in 2010. With over 25 years of experience in education in their local area of Manchester, co-owners Joanne and Colin Murphy saw a growing demand for experienced and reliable tutors to work with students in their homes in order to help them maximise their learning. Our approach sees every student treated as an individual, and our commitment to providing exceptional tutoring that is tailored to the individual has seen Choice Home Tutoring go from strength to strength. Just as important are the tutors who work with us; they receive a level of support which is uncommon in the tutoring sector.

Who are we looking for?

We’re happy to hear from people from all professional backgrounds – our franchisees don’t need a background in education, although it is clearly beneficial. We’re looking for intelligent and driven individuals who are professional in their approach, and self-disciplined, organised and passionate about making their business a success. One of the many benefits of the role is that it allows you to operate from home, giving you full control over your work schedule and enabling you to enjoy the benefits of a flexible work/life balance.

Next steps

Please take a look at our website  and feel free to contact Colin at  or 07715 661734; he’ll be happy to chat things through with you.

If you’re happy to proceed following an initial discussion, we’ll invite you to a meeting at our Head Office (although currently online) to formally go through everything you’ll need to know about potentially becoming the next Choice Home Tutoring franchisee.

Paid Market Research opportunity for babies of 1-6 months

Blue Yonder Research are working with our client to explore the natural body movements of healthy babies. Video clips provided to us will be anonymised when sent to our client, and will be used to inform artificial intelligence on how healthy babies move. This means that when a baby is poorly, it can be recognised.

If you have any questions, please email or more information will be given in the sign up survey and consent form 😊

At Blue Yonder Research, we are working on behalf of our client Beneufit you can take a look at their website here basically they work with technologies to look at movement for various different things. In this case, they are wanting to look at the movements of healthy babies to inform their artificial intelligence systems and to calibrate them. So in theory, once the system can recognise the movements of healthy babies, it will be able to know when a baby is unwell or in pain.

So for example, when an online consultation is held (which seems to be more common during the pandemic!) the doctor could ask a parent to film their baby and send the recording to them. The video could then be run through the system and would be able to (hopefully) recognise if a baby was poorly or had certain medical conditions.

So, that’s the overview of the project.

At Blue Yonder we comply very strictly with GDPR. So, respondents agree to share contact information with us so we can of course email you like I am doing now, and invite you to take part etc. The information you have provided then stays with us. The client will not be able to see any identifying information. You will see that when you are invited to the online board, instead of your name you are given a number. As impersonal as that is, it keeps your identifying information with us. So we know who you are, but the client does not.

The client will receive the videos as they need to program them into their fancy systems, (which we do not have involvement with), and they would receive the information from the questions like the length of your baby, their age and gender and how long it was since you fed your baby when you took the video. This is all the information they will receive. So basically your videos are anonymous. They of course will see your baby but they won’t be able to know who you are, who your baby is etc…”
