This year at our Annual DBA Global Conference, we celebrated the hard work and achievements of our franchisees and recognized their outstanding dedication to their business. Above all, we are proud to work alongside individuals who strive to change the trajectory of students’ lives everyday.
The Spirit Award is given to the individual who lives and breathes the Tutor Doctor spirit. This individual demonstrates his or her spirit through their commitment, loyalty, and passion in dealing with customers, tutors, suppliers and fellow franchisees. This franchisee’s impact is felt both in the Tutor Doctor community and within the local community he or she serves.
And the winners of the Spirit Award are...
