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.

English

As an attorney in New York State for more than 25 years, my experience in writing, reading and speaking the English language is extensive. This includes the preparation of countless legal briefs and memoranda, the reading of hundreds of court decisions and legal treatises, and the presentation of oral arguments before trial and appellate courts. In addition, in 2007, I completed an intensive Oxford Seminar course of 60 hours entitled "Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages." Finally, I have 4 years of experience here in Florida tutoring adults and children in primarily ESL, TESOL, and SAT preparation.
