I don't know if this one has been mentioned already, but one I sometimes hear is:

My students don't need access to a tutor; I have more than enough office hours for them to get all the help they need from me!

Looking forward to seeing the compiled list!

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!
