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. We welcome membership from peer, paraprofessional, professional, volunteer, and private practice tutors.
The NTA is the only association in the United States utilizing accredited university approved training and certifying tutors, academic coaches, tutor trainers, and tutorial programs.
On October 25, 2013 The Tutor Report and The National Tutoring Association announced their new partnership.
