Democratizing Test Prep & Tutoring
Independent Tutoring Business Support & Continuing Education
We were started in 2010 by Kevin Organisciak, M.Ed. Kevin co-created the Kaplan Higher Score Guarantee in 2004. The basic premise of that guarantee required students and tutors to be mutually accountable for academic success.
TPAPT is a national consortium of local education companies driven by a common desire to deliver on the promise of student improvement by constantly improving organizational effectiveness.
Our members, friends, and affiliates observe a Code of Professional Ethics in the form of clear expectation-setting and a straightforward tutoring guarantee.
As a not-for-profit industry association TPAPT also offers continuing business education, standards-based SAT/ACT Tutor Training, and White Label SAT/ACT tools to local businesses and community based organizations.
If you are honest, believe in the power of education, and have a bit of an entrepreneurial bent check out the rest of the site. If you still like what you see, we invite you to join the community.
More about us...
Who are the cool kids?
Over 10,000 Neighborhood Tutors, Owner-Operators and Solopreneurs unequivocally committed to student outcomes as the most important measurement of success.
What does a normal day look like for our members?
About 1/3 of the membership identifies with being a tutor/advisor first during a typical workday and over half spend most of the day on academic development and program quality.
What does a normal week look like for us?
We tutor about 1/2 the time and run the business the other 1/2 of the time. In between, we think about how to get better at both.
Join Our Test Prep for All Initiative
While the SAT and the ACT may be flawed, the idea of having a meritocratic-based education system is not.
The answer isn't to eliminate the tests, it is to expand access so that all students can prepare for those tests with similar resources.
We think part of the answer is within reach: pairing the best Local Independent Test Prep and Tutoring Professionals with motivated students regardless of socio-economics.
Help us match Title I students with your free or low fee test prep tutoring.
