The interaction between tutor and student must always be more than just an automated recitation of facts to a passive learner. An educational collaboration rarely succeeds when a learner lacks motivation or a teacher lacks experience. Amy and Mike invited educator Anthony Celino to clarify all the reasons you want to work with a career tutor.

- What distinguishes career tutors from part-timers?
- How does a long-term commitment to education influence an instructor?
- What are the educational advantages of working with career tutors?
- Why are career tutors often better at building authentic educational relationships?
- In what instances might a less experienced or focused teacher or tutor suffice?
