Loren teaches the study skills that will make learning criminology easier and more relevant. Loren drove all the way from Arlington, Virginia to our house in Rockville, Maryland to tutor my daughter who is taking her first criminal justice class at the University of Maryland. She was lost about what aspects of the class would be important for the upcoming midterm exam and Loren had her summarize in her notes all relevant court cases and provided her with a table that gives brief descriptions of important criminological theories. He is amazingly patient and helpful and was able to teach her study skills that will make learning the criminology material easier and more relevant. We plan to keep using him as my daughter now feels much more confident about the class and how to study for the important exams.
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.
