I have a Bachelors Degree in Literature and I completed an additional 2 years studying curriculum for educators where I acquired some experience with the AVID program at our local high school.

I have set my fees lower than most tutors; not to discount my ability as a professional tutor, but to be sensitive to those on a budget.
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.
