Founder and managing director of Success Tutoring franchises, Michael Black, ranked 13 in the Top 30 Franchise Executives ceremony, hosted by Inside Franchise Business on March 31, 2022.
The event showcased Australia’s top-performing franchising professionals at an exclusive industry event in Melbourne.
Mr Black says he is proud of how far Success Tutoring has come, particularly with the challenges he and his team faced in 2021.
“I am very humbled to be named one of Australia’s Top 30 Franchise executives. Starting Success Tutoring in a spare room in 2017 and seeing the growth that the company has accomplished has been unreal,” he says. ‘I’m Looking forward to seeing what the next 12 months brings for Success Tutoring and our franchise partners.’
Not only did the Success Tutoring franchise face financial hardships with COVID lockdowns and restrictions, but mentally, the founder and managing director had come up against challenges he’d never faced before.
Black admitted that 2021 forced him to reflect on his work-life balance.
“When we began working from home, it became significantly harder to switch off which had a direct impact on my mental and physical health,” he explained. “ I implemented a new schedule which had allocated regular 30-minute ‘mental health breaks’ to avoid burnout.”
But despite this, Black shared some exceptional achievements in 2021 that he credits to the flexible leadership approach he was forced to adopt in a challenging year.
“I included franchisees in the decision and development process of launching new courses. This collaboration with our franchisees meant we could share the franchisees’ success across our brand by offering new courses company-wide and giving all franchisees access to the same opportunities for growth.”
2021 was a challenging year for small business owners around the world, and Black was no exception. While the company faced challenges of their own, Black says that the COVID lockdowns and restrictions reiterated the importance of Success Tutoring’s mission.
“Success Tutoring has a simple aim to motivate, inspire and uplift students to reach their full potential,” the founder said.
“During the lockdowns, when students experienced severe disruptions to their education with school closures, it became even more critical for my team to step up and fill in the gaps in education,” Black explained.
Success Tutoring is quickly becoming the leading tutoring franchise in Australia. Success Tutoring understands that the traditional, one-size-fits-all approach to learning limits students’ academic potential. That’s why Success Tutoring curates lesson plans according to the research-backed, ‘inspired learning’ teaching method.
“I want to empower the future generation that learning isn’t just something that happens in a classroom, but all around us – being in lockdown gave my team the opportunity to tap into this.”
Since its establishment in 2017 by Michael Black, Success Tutoring is becoming the fastest growing tutoring company in Sydney and has huge plans for expansion with franchising opportunities now available.
With extensive, ongoing training and support, inexpensive investment costs and world-class branding, franchisees who take on this lucrative business proposition will follow a tried and tested, turn-key business model.
As the billion-dollar tutoring industry continues to see rapid expansion, the best time to invest in education is now. Success Tutoring will continue to grow as they pioneer Australian education – so, are you willing to join the educational revolution?
