SAT & ACT Tutor Training and Certification

Great test prep tutors are made, not born.  With solid lesson plans and strong grounding in the test material, tutors are able to carefully and meaningfully guide their students to understanding and mastery.  

Our SAT/ACT Certification takes each tutor through a rigorous  and standardized SAT and/or ACT training program.  This is an asynchronous training with a synchronous certification meeting.

"“Eight years ago, I was an individual tutor looking to expand my business beyond myself but with little idea how to do so. Luckily, I found Kevin and TPAPT right at that time. TPAPT helped me develop paperwork and procedures, manage hiring, develop a marketing strategy, and connect with other test prep and education professionals who could help me grow and improve my business. Now my company has sixteen employees and is growing in a highly competitive region.” "

-Ben Sexton, Founder, Sexton Test Prep & Tutoring.
