FRANCHISING
Become a Part of this Multi-billion Dollar Industry
The supplementary education market continues to boom even in current economy. It is expected that tutoring industry will be a multi-billion dollar industry by the end of 2017. If you want to help the children in your community achieve academic excellence and have a desire to start a business of your own, we invite you to team with us to follow a proven path.
WHY NOW?
THE REASONS
For a number of different reasons including school budget cutbacks, fewer teachers, crowded classrooms, standardized tests, failing test scores, and increased global competition, the tutoring industry is booming. This, along with the fact that parents are actively taking responsibility and becoming more involved with their children’s education, makes it only logical that this improvement is taking place. Surveys from The Star have found that more parents across Ontario are opting for private tutoring. Around 1 in 3 families, to be exact.
GROWTH
According to Global Industry Analyst, Inc., amid the Covid-19 crisis, the Private Tutoring market worldwide is set to grow a whopping US$105.9 Billion in the next few years. This number, of course, represents the market worldwide, but Canada represents $1 Billion of the industry and held against the global market, the Canadian market is still relatively untapped. There is significant room for growth in the Canadian Private Tutoring market.
OPPORTUNITY
The industry presents an exceptional opportunity for supplemental education providers - especially Megamind Learning Centre franchise owners whose businesses are built upon a solid pedagogical foundation, who are well trained, and who are continuously supported with research leading to new, innovative, and responsive programs. The market continues to grow and becoming part of a franchise that specializes in supplemental education for students is not only lucrative, but extremely rewarding. Allowing students their right to education, and their parents the gift of helping their children succeed is an amazing thing, for them and yourself.
THE RIGHT TIME IS NOW
Parents and educators alike know the importance of boosting a child’s self-esteem as a basis for success. This is exactly why our programs are designed the way they are and are frequently updated to fit our students’ needs. Your students at Megamind Learning Centre will learn how to learn— this is what sets apart Megamind Learning Centre from traditional tutoring or childcare learning facilities. Students build on every success, increasing their confidence with each achievement. At Megamind Learning Centre, we understand exactly how important that is, so our programs are specifically designed to encourage children and foster their growth.

At Megamind, our goal is simple: to aid students with our available resources and teach them to learn.
MEGAMIND PROGRAM

ABACUS MENTAL HEALTH
This program is a well-structured brain development program for children ages 4 to 13. We use an Abacus, an ancient Japanese tool, to teach students how to add, subtract, multiply, and divide without the use of calculators. By instilling this skill early on, children will be much more adept at performing mathematical functions in the future. It is an important skill to learn and can help tremendously when they move into higher level maths such as algebra and calculus.
TUTORING
In 2013, Megamind began offering tutoring in all subjects from grades JK to 12. Whether a child needs help with Math, English, French, or any other subject, Megamind is here to help. Our goal is to provide the necessary support for all children to excel in school and get the most out of their education as possible. Tutoring is not only a growing industry, but a crucial service that is necessary for many children to succeed in school.
PRIVATE HIGH SCHOOL
Megamind has collaborated with a leading online private high school to provide credits to students in grades 9 through 12. Most students learn at different paces; for some, it can be challenging to keep up in school, while having to wait for others to catch up can be the issue for others. By offering essential services such as a learning environment in which they can learn and grow at their own pace, as well as providing them with the tools necessary to succeed, Megamind Learning Centre sets them up for long-term success.
