Our Tutors are Stellar
At some point in time, CPA tutoring became a product, with massive companies focused on minimal, average score increases. Unsatisfied with the status quo, Tutor the People partnered with Learnt with the goal of personalizing CPA test prep based on the needs of the individual student, not the needs of a focus group. We hire tutors who not only receive top scores on the CPA exam sections but also have a passion and skill for teaching their students how to recreate this success on test day.
When you work with a Learnt CPA tutor, you can rest assured that you’re working with a pro. Our tutors are background-checked with verified credentials. You can read tutor reviews, and message tutors prior to booking with them, in order to make sure you find the best fit.
You can schedule whenever works best for you. Busy with tax season? No problem! Pause your CPA prep until you have a little more breathing room. We understand that many of the CPA candidates who are studying for the CPA are also working full-time, may have kids at home, and more. We get it, you’re busy. We’ll help you figure out a way to make this work.

Do you qualify to take the CPA?
Before signing up to the CPA, you must first obtain a Notice to Schedule (NTS). To acquire an NTS, you should apply to take the exam then wait for NASBA’s Board of Accountancy to determine that you are eligible.
You must obtain as NTS for BEC, REG, FAR, and AUD. So four Notices to Schedule total. Each NTS is valid for a specific amount of time, and cannot be used once it expires. So remember to schedule your exam appointment soon after obtaining your NTS.
