With this is in mind I develop courses that address my client's specific needs, whether it is Business English, speaking, listening, writing, reading, vocabulary, or pronunciation.
I have over 6 years of experience in the field and currently teach adults at the community college level.

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.
