While I ran a Learning Center in a community college, I am
now working in a high school which generally require certification for
virtually everything. In our case the tutoring certification would have
to be for the state in which the Learning Center is located unless you
are talking about bestowing National Certification . Since There is
no state certification for tutoring, this National Concept would be a
great idea since we already have National Teacher Certification. It would
also transfer anywhere. It certainly would be a big plus when the school
is seeking reaccredat ion or when someone applies for a position.

Thanks for any information you can send.
