WICHITA — Sachin Bharati’s two small children aren’t old enough for school and test-taking yet, but he’s already thinking of their future and starting a Tutoring Center franchise here.
“I was just really intrigued by the program,” Bharati says.
The franchise offers an after-school education center for children from kindergarten through 12th grade and specializes in reading, math and writing.
“It’s all one-to-one individual instruction for children,” Bharati says.
The franchise also has SAT and ACT prep classes, which Bharati won’t have immediately “but hopefully down the line.”
“That was a really strong factor, too,” he says of his interest in the franchise.
Initially, Bharati will have two to four instructors.
“It depends on the demand after that.”
Bharati is the business manager for his father Ralph Bharati’s psychiatry office, which he’ll continue to do in addition to having the Tutoring Center.
“Basically,” he says, “I wanted to bring something to the community here for the children.”
