Approved subjects

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.

For presentation delivery, I can help a student incorporate facts and statistics in an interesting way through appropriate language choices. I have experience in helping students begin speeches with an attention-grabber and end with a powerful closing. I am skilled in helping students use effective pace, tone, and volume.
