As tutors for English or math will be most in demand, we encourage, but not require, prospective tutors to be proficient in being able to apply and teach English or math within the elementary to high school range. However, because Tutor Doctor also specialises in other subjects, if you're passionate about teaching other subjects (i.e. computer science, biology, chemistry, physics, history, French, etc.), we welcome your application as well! Tutor Doctor also tutors students of all ages (including adults). However, a parent or legal guardian must be present in the home to supervise the session when tutoring a student under the age of 18.
