Stride Tutors are required to be state certified teachers and are located across the U.S. They are currently employed by Stride and teach for one of our many Stride K12-powered online schools. In 2023, certified teachers who work for other schools will be eligible to tutor, too. To be certified, a teacher usually must achieve a bachelor's degree or higher, complete a stateapproved teacher preparation program, complete a student teaching experience, and pass a series of exams. Each state has their own certification requirements.
