Membership with the GPTA

The continued and sustained growth of private tutoring around the world has led to the founding of the Global Professional Tutors Association (GPTA).

Formed in recognition of the need for responsible self-regulation, the GPTA ensures members strictly adhere to the GPTA Code of Ethics in this rapidly-growing industry.

Members receive benefits.


Being listed on the GPTA website will allow clients within your nation to search for you. Members are also able to use the GPTA logo on their website and collateral to promote their status as ethical tutors.


Various media opportunities are available for members when the GPTA is approached for comment. There is also the opportunity to be involved in research to better understand the development, growth, benefits and value to mainstream education.


With our accreditation partners, the GPTA offers courses to help members improve operations and the quality of their practice. Webinars and other professional networking opportunities will be available from time to time.


Investigation into the unscrupulous practices of non-members and complaints made by the GPTA to relevant regulatory bodies where appropriate.


Acting on behalf of members, the GPTA lobbies national governments to opt for a self-regulation model as the preferred market-based mechanism for encouraging ethical practice in tutoring.


Members receive the latest industry news about trends in education and tutoring across the world via a quarterly newsletter (In-Tuition Global). As a member, you are joining a network of like-minded professionals who aspire to accountable and responsible practices in education.
