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.
My approach to English, as well as other subjects, is to stress patience and allow students to proceed at their own pace. I have successfully tutored grade school and high school students from widely differing backgrounds.
I have worked as a labor economist in federal and state government and have successfully tutored both high school and adult students in macroeconomics and microeconomics (I have also tutored statistics courses).
I have successfully worked with elementary students in the past, tutoring both math and reading. This includes working with students under No Child Left Behind and also with those who have math phobias using a very patient approach.
My approach to tutoring prealgebra, which I have done to both grade school students and adults, emphasizes thoroughness and patience--letting the student proceed at the rate he or she desires. I also try to bring in real world examples to make the subject matter more easily understandable and relevant.
