Former Air Force Commander Flies to Top of Tutor Doctor Executive Team

Growing Private Tutoring Franchise Names Robert Rosedale to VP of

BOISE, Idaho–(BUSINESS WIRE)–As the newly appointed Vice President of Operations for Tutor
, retired U.S. Air Force Colonel Robert Rosedale is
laser-focused on a primary mission: Equip the world’s leading private
one-on-one tutoring franchise with the processes and tools to operate
efficiently well into the future. In turn, Tutor Doctor franchisees of
today – and tomorrow – can run flourishing businesses that provide
students with skills they need to achieve success.

For Rosedale, who opened Tutor Doctor’s first franchise in Idaho after
retiring from his 27-year military career, transitioning from successful
franchisee to a post at the franchisor’s corporate office was a natural

As a Flying Training Squadron Commander in the Air Force, Rosedale
transformed young officers into pilots who were ready for worldwide
missions. As a franchisee, he applied those same training concepts to
build confidence and discipline among students. His latest post allows
him to combine all of his skillsets and to share learnings and create
best practices that the entire Tutor Doctor franchise system can benefit

“Being process oriented, having a strong sense of self-discipline,
taking calculated risks…these are all skills business owners rely on,”
Rosedale said. “Teaching young students the importance of hard work,
self-confidence and resilience to overcome challenges were integral
parts of running of my franchise, and I’m carrying those same principles
into my role as VP of Operations at the home office.”

Early on as a franchisee, Rosedale recognized that many students
struggle in school not so much due to lack of knowledge, rather they
don’t have the academic discipline to organize projects, manage their
time, prioritize tasks or think long-term. He designed new program
called “X-Skills” to help students build these organizational and
“executive” skills to help them in school and beyond. The home office of
Tutor Doctor took notice and eventually rolled it out system-wide. That
experience gave Rosedale a taste of how he could have an impact on a
national scale and further expand his reach within the tutoring sector.

“Bob’s extensive experience in the military and as a franchisee gives
him tremendous street credibility with our franchise owners,” said Tutor
Doctor President Frank Milner. “He has already proven to be an
incredible asset to Tutor Doctor. He will be instrumental in shaping the
company’s core set of processes as we continue to grow domestically and
in global markets.”

One of Rosedale’s immediate goals is to introduce technology and
streamline the company’s current processes to help franchisees operate
with a proactive mindset. His franchise in Boise, which will now be
managed by corporate Tutor Doctor to allow him to focus on his new role,
will serve as a flagship operation to pilot new programs before rolling
them out system-wide.

“As Tutor Doctor continues a pattern of consistent expansion
domestically and around the world, it’s imperative to refine processes
and systems that can sustain growth. Working with Frank and the rest of
the executive team, we have a very specific vision and we will execute
on it.”
