Allen helped me complete a statistics project and made sure that I understood each step of the process. He was able to explain statistics in plain English instead of math jargon. He also helped me correct my wording on my project when necessary. I would highly recommend him as a tutor for any subject, especially Biology or statistics.
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.
