My very shy daughter was struggling with chemistry, Emma helped her raise her C grade to an A. Emma's gentle, precise and supportive teaching style gave my daughter the foundation so she would understand the curriculum plus the added confidence to raise her grade.

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.
