Thank you for the feedback. It was a pleasure tutoring your son. He worked hard and was coming up with some of his own ideas for remembering the material. The links I sent you will help him practice the material.

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.
