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.

I have been teaching statistics for more than two years, and tutoring for much longer. I recently started helping students with Biostatistics. Topics I have helped students with include basic epidemiology concepts such as the extent of disease, its incidence, its prevalence, mortality rates, risk ratio, rate ratio, odds ratio, relative risk, and risk difference. I have also covered study design, sampling methods, and survival analysis. And of course, I have experience with probability, confidence interval estimation, sampling distributions, hypothesis testing, power and sample size determination, and regression. I frequently helped students with topics like: Student's t-test, Paired t-test, ANOVA, Mann-Whitney U test, Fisher's exact test, Chi-square test, Pearson's correlation, Spearman's correlation, Linear (bivariate and multiple) Regression, and Logistic Regression.
