Ironically, a similar wordy comparison can be found in tutor and tutorship. True of sporting and tutoring, there will always be a teacher and a student; a coach and player; a master and an apprentice. However, is the teacher the only one teaching or the student the only one studying? Of course not; each are being edified by the other; each are learning from one another. Thus I may be a great tutor-an expert in my field of education and writing-but do I embrace tutorship? Do I look down on my student and desire to carry him up the ladder to my level knowledge with a “know-it-all” attitude? Or do I see both of us as a team of masons, of writing; he holding the bricks to be laid and I spreading the mortar for the bricks to be stacked? Thus is tutorship a joined and intended to be an enjoyed experience: like writing, it is not one-way communication, it's a two-way conversation. Tutorship means teamwork.
