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.

In addition, I lived in Taiwan for 7 years, have been studying Chinese for 10 years, and part of my college major requirements was to study a foreign language, in my case Chinese.
