    Meet the Team

    Frank Milner

    President
    Frank Milner has been president of Tutor Doctor since 2007. The moment Frank learned about the model, he recognized its vast potential and was hooked. With a daughter who struggled with what he called “math meltdowns,” Frank understood firsthand the chief benefit of Tutor Doctor’s one-on-one model being that it ensures privacy for the student and addresses his/her specific needs. He also recognized Tutor Doctor’s unlimited growth potential, since education is one of the only segments that’s universally valued across nearly every culture and continent. Coming from 10+ years in tutoring franchising as well as working in the insurance industry and becoming known as the sales coach, Frank and his team outlined a strategy to cater to the growing demand for private tutoring by introducing the unique Tutor Doctor concept to new cities and countries around the globe.
