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 worked at this Japanese Language School in Uptown Los Angeles called "Rafu Uwamachi Dai-Ni Gakuen" from 1983 to 1984. That was a school for mostly elementary school children to study Japanese on Saturdays.
I taught Japanese with text books but sometimes I had to create materials by myself to make our students feel studying Japanese was interesting and fun.
One of the materials that I created was Kanji (Chinese characters) Quiz. For example we have a kanji for tree, which is "?". Now when there are more than one trees, which becomes "?", means woods. What about three trees? It becomes "?", which means forest.
That was fun even to me to see them got excited.
After teaching at the school, I worked at Japanese Newspaper Company as a writer, editor and then editor in chief for 23 years. I left the company 2007 and freelancing for a while writing for magazines and papers.
In the meantime I have kept studying Haiku poems, and now I work as a judge for Haiku column at this Japanese Newspaper called "Nikkan Sun".
