About Joanne

My varied background experience includes 4 years as adjunct professor of English Composition plus several years as an ESL tutor.

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.
