These days anyone can claim to be a tutor, but tutoring has devolved into a world of tutor matching ecosystems which claim to offer steady pay under the pretense of "employment." 

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.

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 the most effective way possible. 

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.
