I have over ten year's experience teaching and have worked with a great variety of students from around the world. I have taught ESL (English as a Second Language), ABE (Adult Basic Education), and GED Preparation. My master's degree is in Art History (Southern Methodist University, 2000). I continually work to increase and improve my education by continual reading and reflection.

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.
