Our Tutors are Stellar
At some point in time, CPA tutoring became a product, with huge companies focused on meager, average score increases. Unsatisfied with the status quo, Tutor the People was founded 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 dedication to teaching their students how to recreate this success on test day.
Money-Back GuaranteeA Free Introductory Hour is included with the purchase of any of our study packages. Not satisfied after the first hour, you can receive a full, 100% refund with our Money-Back Guarantee. Additionally, any unused hours in your package are refundable.
A Team Dedicated to Your Success
Every CPA tutoring package includes both a CPA tutor who creates an individualized study plan tailored to your needs, in addition to an personal academic strategist who is there to support you every step of the way.
