It was through our long standing relationship with Crossroads of Learning who provide tutor certification programs for the National Tutoring Association, that the idea to provide the members, customers and readers easy access and links across all three organizations.
The NTA was formed in 1992 for the purpose of establishing a membership organization for tutoring professionals. Over the past years, the purpose has expanded to promote education, specialization, and scientific research.
The NTA is now the oldest and largest professional association dedicated exclusively to tutoring, and represents the interests of thousands of tutors in the U.S. and thirteen other countries, practicing in all phases of tutoring, program administration, and supplemental student services. Members represent colleges, universities, high schools, middle schools, elementary schools, school districts, literacy programs, community programs, grant supported programs, and NCLB/SES providers. The National Tutoring Association welcomes membership from peer, paraprofessional, professional, volunteer, and private practice tutors.
The National Tutoring Association hosts an annual conference packed with workshops and concurrent breakout sessions. The next conference is in Tampa in April 2014 and the schedule is looking great. I will be there exhibiting for The Tutor Report and Oases Online so please stop by and say hi to us and the folks from Crossroads of Learning.
