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.

Dependable and explains concepts well

We are very pleased to have met Mr. Steven J. His expertise and tutoring style have been a perfect match for our college-age son. Following is his review: "(Mr. J) is a really good tutor, gives a clear overview of concepts presented in class but not thoroughly explained by the teacher. I can recommend him to anyone who is trying to learn multiple programming languages."
