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.
I have a Bachelors degree in Business Management and 16+ years experience in private arena as a defense contractor providing direct support on multiple contracts, program management and senior leadership.

I have personal experience counseling my three children and many of their friends regarding college selection and courses (majors/minors) to select. In addition, I spent one year at their high school as an volunteer adviser to minority students. I also advised them regarding employment options, internship possibilities while they were in college. I also served as an on-campus recruiter for my USG employer at primarily HBCUs and also at majority schools. I managed two college interns providing them coaching and academic advise as well as being their supervisor on the job. I continue to interact with young high school and college students helping them navigate the college selection and application process, and I check in with them while they are in college. I have written letters of recommendation for students in every stage of the development process from applying for college, applying for internships and applying for employment at graduation.
