Hi Michelle,

The most common ones I hear have already been mentioned here. I'll add one
that I've heard a few times:

"Only students who have been through my class will be able to tutor my
students."

I see this list of myths as a very valuable resource. Would you mind
sharing to the list once you've compiled the responses you've received?
Perhaps in a day or two? I, for one, would really appreciate it.

Thanks so much!
