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 am also a reading specialist, and used to work for the Center for Literacy, a non-profit in Philadelphia.
I tutor SAT Verbal, and I previously worked for Huntington Learning Center. I enjoy helping students succeed, and I help take the fear out of test-taking.
