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.

I have a BA and an MA in economics, and I taught economics for eight years.

French

I took French from 5th-12th grade (including AP French), studied it in undergrad, and took it again in grad school, passing a certification exam in the process. I lived in France for two summers and more recently worked in Haiti and Cameroon.
