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 completed an MA in Creative Writing but I started my education with an Associates at a business school. One of the requirements was Public Speaking. I will never forget my "How to do something assignment" I kept it simple and did the steps to make "Ants on a Log," which is celery stuffed with peanut butter and raisins scattered along the peanut butter. It was a tasty hit!
I have had experience reading poetry on stage at open mikes starting in 1996. I have continued to read poetry at venues around town, including being a featured author at Printer's Row Book Fair many years and one year participating on two different stages. I facilitate a writing workshop, and currently teach three students on SKYPE with an online camera. I also have been interviewing people on the telephone for a company contracted by government agencies.
