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

Teaching Organization habits and time management: From wise use of spare time and finding the right time and place to do homework, to assignment, projects, meetings and practice record, priority lists and adequate sleeping hours. Once the learning atmosphere is accomplished and skills acquired, the student will learn to ask him/herself questions to understand the meaning of the readings finding topics and main ideas. We will work on class readiness and test preparation strategies, by creating a system of note-taking, graphic organizers, pictures and note revising. I will gladly accommodate to the academic needs of the student as he or she progresses.
