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 counseled dozens of students preparing for college over more than ten years. I have particular skill and experience in helping students complete application essays and questions.
I hold a master's degree in Applied Linguistics and have taught ESL in China, South Korea, and Japan. I have taught at, developed curricula for, and managed ESL programs at various institutions in the greater Boston area during a teaching career of nearly 20 years.
