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.

ADD/ADHD

I have had specific tutoring experience with children that have ADD/ADHD, working with k-6th graders for 6 years. I have also taken additional studies in education through online classes in this specific area so I have the additional knowledge to teach and tutor these students.
