Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

American History

I've been a major history buff all my life and I've had to study US history as part of my undergraduate work.

Anatomy

I passed my general anatomy class with a 93 percent. My teacher was so pleased with my performance he didn't even ask me to take the final exam.

English

I am a native speaker of English. I have been tutoring non-native speakers in English since 2008.

ESL/ESOL

I am a native speaker of English. I have been tutoring in English since 2008. I am particularly well suited to tutor native speakers of Japanese, because I possess a bachelor's of arts degree in Japanese from San Francisco State University.

Japanese

I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Japanese from San Francisco State University. I studied abroad at Temple University Japan Campus in Tokyo for one year. Since I returned from Japan in 2009 I have been tutoring in Japanese and English. I have passed the Japanese Language Proficiency Test level N2,

Martial Arts

I have been studying Northern Shaolin Kung Fu under Master Su Xing, Master of the US Kung Fu Temple In Dublin, California. I have been training and studying for the past four years and have taught lessons in his stead regularly. I continue to train and take lessons from Master Xing but in my spare time I enjoy teaching others what I know.
