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.

Patient and qualified Spanish tutor.

So far, Nina has provided 4 hours of instruction in Basic Spanish to our daughter. It looks like Nina has made the difference between her passing the class and being forced to drop it. I highly recommend Nina as a Spanish Tutor. The only problem we had was that the textbooks are online and Nina's home does not have WiFi internet. Therefore, classes were held at our home. Not a problem, just a FYI.
