In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.

I am internationally licensed in TESOL and was the ESL director for El Segundo High School in California.
I have been a licensed teacher for 10 years and have found tactics to help students with memorization and for breaking large amounts of information down into like categories and manageable sized portions. I teach time management and being creative by using rhymes, sketches. I believe in using a tabbed binder for easy location and having a priority list.
