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.
I have been playing trumpet for the past fifteen years and teaching for the past eight. I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Music from Saint Mary's College and am currently a second year Master's candidate in Classical Trumpet at Manhattan School of Music. I currently teach for MSM's Distance Learning Program and I have also worked with students in our pre-college orchestra. I took a year off between undergraduate and graduate school and during that year I taught students privately and presented masterclasses at elementary and middle schools near where I lived.
