As a retired English teacher of thirty-three years, I have an extensive background in education, having spent the last ten years of my career supervising and designing curriculum for the English department at Swampscott High School, as well as working part-time at Newbury College.

She recently graduated and I am looking for another tutoring position.

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.
