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.

I hold valid Georgia state certification for ESOL. I also hold a doctorate degree in inclusive education, which incorporates special education and ESOL.
