Tutor Certification Programs Myth

In all the years I have been a tutor or run a tutoring service, I have still to this day not found a legitimate Tutor Certification Program. There aren’t any.  Most programs out there are from a for profit company. Even non profit companies get into the act, but their programs are not state or federally certified programs.  The tutoring industry is not regulated by any governmental program and for this we should be thankful. As soon as the government does get involved, innovation will be lost. If you want to get certified to be a tutor, by all means you can use the available program from for profit and non profit companies. Just know as a student there is no standard program. “Certification” in tutoring has no meaning.
