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.

Writing: Vocabulary, grammar and frequent writing pieces of increasing lengths, with prompt feedback and revision practice.
Sharing: Increasing vocabulary confidence to improve oral communication, including speech-making for multiple purposes.
