Approved subjects

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.

First Tutoring Session

Della met with my son Jack and I to discuss Jack's needs. She came to our first meeting with ideas for learning strategies to assist his learning which I was very thankful to receive. He has a central auditory processing disorder which makes learning more challenging. We are excited to move forward with her help!
