Entrepreneur Franchise of the Day: Club Z! In-Home Tutoring

The first Club Z! opened in Tampa, Florida, in 1995, and Tampa remains the location of the company’s headquarters today. Franchisees offer one-on-one in-home tutoring services, including ACT and SAT prep, foreign languages, computers and music, and other academic subjects. Club Z! franchise owners can also offer online test prep, subject tutoring, and on-demand homework help for additional revenue.

Achieve Academic Success This Year!


Club Z! is the nation’s premier in-home and online tutoring franchise. For nearly 25 years, Club Z! has had the privilege of providing high quality educational programs to students in all grade levels, from pre-K through adult. Club Z! franchise owners manage a staff of tutors that provide one on one instruction for students and business professionals in the comfort and convenience of the student’s home at an extremely competitive rate. If you have a desire to start a business of your own, follow a proven business plan, and want to team up with industry leaders, then Club Z! could be for you..

Franchise Opportunities

The Club Z! franchise model offers tremendous potential for growth, protected franchise territories, and low overhead because it’s a home-based business model. There are multiple revenue streams, including both in-home and online tutoring and test prep options. The private tutoring market continues to boom, even in a soft economy. The global private tutoring market is projected to surpass $133 BILLION by the end of 2019. The K-12 online tutoring segment of the market alone is expected to DOUBLE in the next 5 years! There are very few industries with that type of projected annual growth.

The main reason for this growth is a shift in the overall service market, where companies are expected to make things more convenient for customers (think: Amazon vs going to the mall). Club Z! has managed to do just that by investing over $500,000 in developing a proprietary online tutoring platform and lead generator for our franchisees. In-home tutoring continues to be our primary focus, but with both in-home and online tutoring programs available, in all subjects and for all grade levels, our franchise owners can capture more market share than ever. The combination of in-home and online make our franchise opportunity impossible to ignore!

3 Growing Profit Centers

  1. K-12th 1 to 1 tutoring. Our tutoring is conducted in the home of the student or another mutually agreed location. Club Z!’s program is extremely effective; our average student improves two letter grades in just 60 days.

Club Z! also offers test prep programs for the SSAT, ISEE, GMAT, GRE, LSAT and MCAT, as well as on-site “Boot Camp” programs for test prep.
  3. Online Tutoring. Club Z! franchise owners can offer online test prep, subject tutoring and our ON-Demand homework help program. The best part is that Club Z! Corporate does all of the work! From staffing and managing the online tutors, to billing the online customers and handling all customer service for online tutoring, the Club Z! Corporate office does all of the work and Club Z! franchisees earn 50% of the profit (no royalties on online tutoring!)

“I’m a retired veteran from the U.S. Marine Corps, and I’ve been an Area Director in Jacksonville FL, and surrounding areas for almost two years. Working with Club Z! corporate staff has helped a guy like me with no business experience produce some profit within just a few months of starting. The Area Director Support Department, Art Department, Recruiting, and the Marketing Department, have been an absolute pleasure to work with. Another great thing about Club Z! is that it comes equipped with a business model to follow and a phenomenal Club Z! website to manage your customers and tutors information.” Jonathan Boyd – Jacksonville, FL
