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 have also helped these students with writing in academic English as well. I have personally sat for the TOEFL exam to gain a better understanding of what non-native speakers have to go through to improve their language abilities.
