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.

In order to obtain my teaching credential, I was required to take courses in teaching methodology which emphasized the different types of learners and what type of teaching is required to see success.

Phonics

In college, I took a course in phonemics. We learned how to analyze word sounds linguistically. We were assigned to do a independent study on an elementary child on how they pronounced certain sight words. Then we instructed the parents on how to help the child correctly pronounce the words (repetitions, flash cards, etc.) In my ESL teaching experience, we spend much time learning the different phonetic sounds of the English alphabet in relation to sight words.
