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.

Wonderful tutor who challenges my son to do better!

Mr Paul E. has been so good in challenging our son to think & compose better! He's already challenged him in just a few sessions, so he's beginning to write better sentences! He helped our son identify his better traits and makes his lessons fun!
