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 have classroom experience as a secondary English teacher, as well as several years of experience as a private tutor. My undergraduate degree was in English, I am certified to teach secondary English, and I have a Master's degree in English education.
Vocabulary is one of my strongest areas. As a secondary English teacher and private tutor, I have helped many students increase their knowledge of vocabulary words, which helps in both school and on the SAT Reading test, which most people know is largely a test of a student's vocabulary mastery.
