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.
As a second language speaker (i.e., Spanish), I am uniquely qualified to teach English as a second language to non-native students.
I use lexical mnemonic techniques and graphic organizers to teach. I also urge my students to read as much as possible. Unfortunately, the English language is idiomatic, and in many cases there is no rhyme or reason for the order of prepositional phrases or clauses, choice of preposition in sentences, etc.
For the last two years, I've tutored Korean-American students in grammar, vocabulary improvement, SAT and TOFL test preparation.
