One role of a tutor is as a tour guide. A tour guide travels the same comfortable route over and over, pointing out the main attractions. An experienced tour guide knows exactly what to expect each step of the way, and is very familiar with all the sights.
The role I prefer to play, however, is that of a safari guide. Safari guides lead explorers into new territory. They know how to get where they are going, and have the skills to lead, but they don’t know exactly what to expect. Each trip is different, and they never know what they might discover. Also, a safari guide isn’t just looking to go somewhere and see the sights. A safari guide goes out each time expecting to have an adventure and bring home a prize.
