Many of us remember having a tutor during our school days. They may have been a friend of the family, an older sibling's friend or perhaps someone sourced from the local paper or community notice-board. Whilst some of us were lucky enough to develop a great rapport with a tutor, chances are that such instances were few and far between. Unfortunately, kids often find themselves being tutored by someone they just don't get along with, and this can have serious implications for their learning.

We can all remember growing up and having an ever-changing answer to the question What do you want to be when you grow up? The number of us who actually became astronauts or famous singers is probably a pretty low percentage. For todays generation of young people, the question is associated with increasing uncertainty. One thing thats certain though is that change will be a constant in the future workforce.
