Approved subjects

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.

In 12 years of teaching business and marketing in high school, I have helped many students with different ways to study content in order to be successful on tests. Examples include note taking, flash cards, Jeopardy-style reviews, classroom students response systems, pair-share study, group study, vocabulary review...to name a few.
