Subject: Students are "scared" to attend tutoring?


I've gotten some feedback from one tutor that was told students are scared to come to tutoring, they don't know what it is. And they are scared that the tutor is an upper-class student.   This is coming out of our music program.


I have never experienced this and am looking for any help/advice on how to counteract these thoughts.
