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 extensive experience teaching all kinds of Students; some are easier and some are more challenging. Each calls for different methods and strategies. But as each individual is unique, I first spend time with the students to evaluate and assess their strengths and where they might need more creative solutions.
