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 a passion about plants. I not only studied botany in college but have studied herbs as part of a series of workshops. I have taught botany and gardening to children on St. Croix after studying with a local botanist while working for the Nature Conservancy. In addition, I worked for the Brooklyn Botanic Garden as a children's gardening instructor. For many years as part of the required Biology curriculum in New York, I have taught botany.
As a science teacher I have been required to teach nutrition as an important part of the curriculum. Specifically as part of preparation for NYS Regents tests, I was required to have extensive knowledge in this subject area. In addition, as a student midwife I have been required to study basic nutrition and nutrition for pregnant woman. As a part of my prenatal work, I must inform families about proper nutrition.
In addition to being a stickler for detail, I have had experience proofing text for a school textbook publishing company. I have also proofed science and math curricula as part of a curriculum writing team for NYC Dept. of Ed. as well as copyediting for various non-profit organizations.
