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 am qualified for this certification because I hold a teaching certificate from the state of Michigan as well as a degree in elementary education with an early childhood endorsement from Western Michigan University. I have been a Kindergarten teacher for three years and worked as a tutor and nanny before that all through college. In addition, attend regular professional development workshops and am up to date on the state common core standards.
