History and Values

Our History

Founded in 1977, Memphis Tutorial Association has tutored thousands of students in the Mid-South. The idea for MTA came to Susan Ison, a native Memphian, early in her teaching career. In January of 1977, she presented the idea to the thirteen-member board of the Memphis Association of Independent Schools, who has heartily supported MTA since that time. As is the case in many successful companies, the founder and many of the original workers continue to work with the company today. Even the children of the first MTA tutors are becoming involved in the work of Memphis Tutorial Association.

Our Values

We believe in these core values:

  • Praying to God for help and guidance
  • Being respectful of our students, their parents, their schools, their teachers, and each other
  • Being flexible and visionary
  • Being dedicated and professional
