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 my doctorate in political science and have five years of teaching experience at the collegiate level in the subject. In addition to my broad competencies, I have subject area knowledge in multiple geographic regions and important global issues. My approach to teaching political science was strongly focused on improving writing and critical thinking, so I would be especially suited to helping students improve their verbal communication and reasoning skills.
