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 an MA in Geography & Environmental Studies including a graduate-level GIS certificate. In my studies I took eight courses focused on GIS and received an A in all of them. My thesis research was on the relationship between tourism and deforestation rates in national parks and had GIS work as its primary component. I have done GIS work for two different companies.
