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.

Larry is a fountain of information but better than his stores of knowledge...he knows how to speak in clear concise terms about the Java. After an hour just talking I have a better understanding of OOP and Java than I could have attained after hours of reading! Thanks Larry.
