In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

I have been using InDesign since it's first beta version, and even before when it was called PageMaker. I've been using it for more than 24 years!

You can even include hyperlinks, and do a little web page design in InDesign, and design for mobile devices in InDesign, which I have shown all my students how to do. I really enjoy using InDesign, it makes layout and design for print and web so easy to do, and you get very quick results!
