Jean Davidson & Oliver Howey
Owners/Educational Consultants

Jean Davidson and Oliver Howey are the owners of the Tutor Doctor franchise in Markham, Scarborough and the Beaches . At Tutor Doctor, Jean and Oliver utilize a proven building block learning process through an in-home, private, one-to-one tutoring service.

Jean and Oliver’s results in the corporate world, public sector, and the not-for-profit sector have always been impressive, however, it’s their ability to listen, understand, and motivate that fuels much of their success. Both Jean and Oliver have a background as adult educators with many years’ experience working with learners of all ages and skills. Having worked in the not-for-profit sector for ten years, they helped thousands of unemployed people assess their situations, reposition their skills, and get back to work through coaching, counseling and mentoring.

Both worked for many years in Corporate Canada at a senior level, eventually moving in to corporate training and development. Oliver also spent many years as a Teacher/Instructor at a local community college. Throughout their diverse career paths, what Jean and Oliver enjoyed the most was the satisfaction of assisting learners of all ages, and observing their transformation from a state of very low self-esteem, to feeling confident and empowered. It’s their passion for helping and empowering individuals to realize their potential that convinced them that they had found the magical match for their skills, abilities and knowledge when they became owners of a Tutor Doctor franchise. Jean and Oliver are life and business partners with five children between them, ranging in ages from 20 to 38 years and have two very rambunctious grandsons. Watching their children progress through elementary and high school as well as post-secondary education, has instilled their desire and commitment to help students of all ages to build a strong foundation for their future, by solidifying their educational performance now.

Over 17 years ago, John Hooi had a simple idea and a desire to make a difference. He wondered why parents had to adjust their family’s busy schedules and drive half way across town just to put their child in another classroom with more kids…when in fact it was the classroom experience that their child was struggling with in the first place. Over the last 17 years, the Tutor Doctor vision has taken shape. In 2003 the company turned to franchising as a way of expanding the company’s impact and meeting the vast market demand. Now with offices internationally, the Tutor Doctor vision is becoming a reality as the lives of students and their families are being positively impacted.
