University of Massachusetts Amherst (History)
I'm a recent graduate from the University of Massachusetts Amherst with a bachelor's degree in History.

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.
