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.

Public Speaking

I have attended many public speaking seminars and studied with a trained public speaking professional. I have gone thorough video analysis and recommendations on how to communicate.

I am an expert in communication and getting messages across, having studied Neuromarketing Science. I am highly skilled at analyzing PowerPoint presentations as well.
