These days anyone can claim to be a tutor, but tutoring has devolved into a world of tutor matching ecosystems which claim to offer experienced and professional tutors when in reality, anyone can apply.

Insiders know that although training and certification are not required to be a tutor, both can go a long way towards helping aspiring tutors digest the material, write lessons, and learn how to deliver them. 

TPAPT's Instructional Tutor Training and SAT/ACT Tutor Training are the first standardized trainings for independent test prep and tutoring professionals outside of commercial test prep.

 Graduates of the program may tutor for TPAPT, receive Insider Job Announcements, and enjoy continuing professional development through a host of web workshops and conferences.  

If you earn a badge from TPAPT, you will have demonstrated concept mastery, a facility for lesson planning, and the ability to sequence and articulate your lessons in a clear and impactful way.

Don't get us wrong, trainees also learn the tips and tricks associated with SAT and ACT test prep but the craft of tutoring is much more than shortcuts, tips, or tricks. 


Test Prep Not Your Thing?

If you are an Academic Subject tutor, we have a program for you as well.  Earn a Digital Badge which reflects your subject expertise in as little as one day.   When you are ready, schedule a call and we'll tell you what to prepare.
