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.

During the course of my 20 year career as a special education teacher, I taught a life skills/cooking class as part of my special education curriculum. In this class students had to choose a menu, price out the cost of making their dish, use math to determine whether it should be doubled (because they cooked for entire class), go out and purchase the groceries, pay, come back and cook, serve and clean up. We used a cooking curriculum from CPI.com and it was a very sought after class for years. I also have 4 kids and cook on a daily basis!
