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.
I have more than 10 years teaching and tutoring experience in the area of Chinese language. Since the students are different, the teaching should be different. The most important is that the teacher should always know what his students are interested in the area of his or her learning. The teacher should keep what the students have learnt and use it (not just repeat it) in the process to learn new things. Also, to point out the differences between Chinese and English is always an interesting thing for the students to learn the new language.
