Tutor Doctor Franchisees Partner with Veterans Administration to Assist Transitioning Veterans
Through a great collaborative effort of Tutor Doctor’s Operations Team and Bob Rosedale, a US veteran and a Tutor Doctor franchisee based in Idaho, Tutor Doctor won the bid and secured a $3.25 million contract with the US Veterans Administration! The five-year contract will provide vocational training and transition services to military veteran men and women pursuing non-military careers!
Tutor Doctor, the #1 at-home tutoring franchise in the world, was the only franchise company capable to provide services across all of the nine states in the western region, ranging from Colorado to Hawaii, which the VA was looking for.
Tutor Doctor’s 22 local offices across the region and its ability to recruit, train and retain the best tutors and trainers with specialized skills were the primary factors in the VA’s decision to work with Tutor Doctor. Bob Rosedale will lead the regional Tutor Doctor team to ensure our veterans are receiving professional and high quality training.
Rosedale’s franchise success in Idaho and his enthusiasm and support of Tutor Doctor’s principles and values combined with his entrepreneurial spirit were instrumental in securing this contract. He applies the same commitment and dedication to his Tutor Doctor business as he did to his country during his 26-year military career. He retired as a US Air Force squadron commander in the late 2000.
Tutor Doctor offers help in any subject to students of all ages including adults going back to school. Rosedale has a roster of more than 100 tutors, including active and retired school principals, teachers, engineers, business professionals, veterans and professionals with experience working with special-needs students.
Rosedale’s business has provided over 10,000 tutoring sessions to over 500 families since opening in 2011. About 100 new families have signed up earlier this year, giving Rosedale’s Tutor Doctor the greatest year-over-year first quarter growth rate among Tutor Doctor franchises in the western US.
“We are in a fortunate position to be helping our transitioning veterans,” says Rosedale. He continues, “I personally went through a transition over ten years ago and am thankful to have the opportunity to help others.”
Today, there are a few areas included in the contract with VA where a Tutor Doctor franchisee is required including:
- Honolulu, HI

There are also a few remaining territories in the western US region which could benefit from the contract! If you or someone you know is a community leader with strong people skills looking to start their own business in these areas, get in touch with Tutor Doctor immediately!
