In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.

I have tutored math for elementary to middle school students for almost 30 years. At that level, we cover basic math, decimal to percent to fraction conversions, improper fractions, mixed fractions, problem solving, perimeter, etc. I am a very patient tutor who finds ways to explain a concept to the student on his/her level so that it is easier to understand. I create a relaxed environment through building rapport with the student so that s/he can feel comfortable in expressing the need for help.
