TPAPT was started in 2010 by Kevin Organisciak, M.Ed. Kevin co-created the Kaplan Higher Score/Money Back Guarantee in 2004. The basic premise of that guarantee required students and tutors to be mutually accountable for academic success.
The initiative was an industry game-changer; it required companies to more firmly stand behind their tutoring while also requiring students to take ownership of their effort.
TPAPT has grown since 2010 and is now a national consortium of Local Owner-Operator Tutoring & College Advising programs driven by a common desire to deliver on the promise of student success 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 Education, Standards-Based SAT/ACT Tutor Training, and White Label SAT/ACT tools to local businesses and community based organizations.
