Mary,

It is interesting that your population views tutoring as a stigma. Our
students look at it as a "luxury" and a savvy, smart way to get ahead and
stay ahead. I wonder how other students feel, and what leads them to their
impressions?

Hello,

We are looking for alternative names to call our tutors.  With the
stigma attached to the word "tutoring," we are trying to come up with
something different to call them. Any ideas?



Have a great day!
~M.
