Approved subjects

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.

As a teacher of History/Sociology/Psychology, Anthro is woven into all areas. I also majored in this subject in college.

Did you know that public speaking is the number one phobia in the Western World? There's nothing to it but to do it and I can teach you many skills which will make your a super speaker!
