The WyzAnt class with Rodger was very productive: We are in the process of reviewing the eight parts of speech. Rodger provided me, at no cost, with a set of well-organized written materials as a study guide. I went through several of the exercises, which helped to clarify the subject matter. I look forward to next week’s class, when we will review the homework assignment and continue with our course of study. It is critical for me to improve my writing skills; with Rodger’s help, I am a step closer to that goal. The session was conducted at his home, a cheerful apartment overlooking Union Square.
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.
