Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ADD/ADHD

I have taught at Dean College in the ARCH program, which targeted students with ADD/ADHD, Asperger's, and other ASD issues. I have also worked one-on-one as a writing coach with students who have these issues.
