The tutoring industry shows no signs of slowing down. As the sheer number of students continues to grow, so too does the number of concerned parents seeking tutoring for their children. According to the U.S. Department of Education, the U.S. had a total of 55.9 million students in public and private elementary and secondary schools as of 2010, and the total number of students is projected to set new records every year through 2018.

According to The New York Times, tutoring is one industry in America that seems immune to recession. As more parents are paying for tutors for their children, spending on tutors is growing at more than 5 percent a year.
