Who We Are

Get an inside look at 240 Tutoring and learn more about us. We might work remotely across the US and bring a variety of experience from the education field and more, but we are united with one common purpose - helping YOU pass your exam and succeed as a teacher.

Our Story

In Texas, most teacher certification exams require a score of 240 or higher to pass. So when Scott Rozell, founder of 240 Tutoring, Inc. realized how limited the preparation resource options were for teachers, he was inspired to develop study guides with one goal in mind – helping teachers pass their exams.

With that goal as his guide, Scott started 240 Tutoring in October 2010 to equip teachers with a quality, comprehensive study resource. The content, which initially included a handful of popular TExES study guides, has expanded to more than 14 test series and 250+ study guides to help teachers nationwide get certified faster – so they can get in the classroom and finally reach their full potential as educators.

It’s been 10 years, but the simple goal that 240 Tutoring started with hasn’t changed. Helping teachers pass their exams so they can start teaching is the fuel that keeps driving us to develop the best study guides available – and we’re just getting started.

Our Values

Care
This is a big one. Not only do we care for ourselves and our individual roles, we also care for other members of our team. We take care in our work, paying attention to what we’re doing and doing our best every day. We keep a pulse on what’s going on around us and what may impact the teacher candidates we serve. And we always treat anyone who interacts with 240 Tutoring with the utmost consideration and care.
Produce Excellence
When we commit to doing something, we commit to doing it well. We work hard to ensure that anything with the 240 Tutoring logo on it receives our best input and best effort. And if that isn’t the case, we humbly receive feedback and work to address the issues.
Know Reality and Change it Deliberately
Let’s be real for a moment - anyone involved in education has to be at least a little bit of a dreamer. But just like a good teacher takes the time to evaluate students and then chart a course to get them where they need to be, we consider our reality and then work to implement plans and processes that are impactful and effective for us and for the teachers we serve.
Focus on the Important
Distraction is easy; staying focused is the harder task. We constantly evaluate whether the tasks and projects we devote our time to are important and contribute to the overall goals of 240 Tutoring. We prioritize what matters and let go of the things that don’t.
Add Positive Energy
No, we’re not just a bunch of happy-go-lucky Pollyannas. We’re real people and we acknowledge that work - and life - can be hard. But we do our best to stay optimistic no matter what the circumstance, to encourage our teammates when they’re having a bad day and to treat anyone who interacts with 240 Tutoring just like we would a friend - with kindness, respect and positive energy.
Anticipate Tomorrow
We’re in this for the long haul. We’re not after short-term solutions or bottom-dollar based decisions. We look ahead to the future and evaluate our actions and choices based on more than just our feelings in the moment. We hope for the best, plan for the worst, and course-correct quickly when we need to.
Think, Speak and Write Clearly
Communication is important. Clear communication is even better. We strive to make sure that we think, speak and write as clearly as we can in both our personal and internal communication and with anything we publish on behalf of 240 Tutoring.
