I like to consider myself an itinerant demagogue. I graduated (in four years, thank you very much) from the University of Texas at Austin, with a major in history (focus on Reformation era European history) and a minor in Linguistics (focus on historical linguistics, though, looking back now I wish I would've studied morphosyntax more).

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.
