In her Writers Circle article, “Reflections on Tutor Humility [by a Recovering Engineer],” Amanda Butler imperatively exhorted tutors to embrace humility for “humility allows tutors to support families in a mentoring relationship, humility permits honesty to permeate the lessons in the classroom, and humility invites the Holy Spirit to do His work in the lives of the tutor, students, and parents.” Amanda predicated this thesis on the statement, “individually, humility in the nature of a tutor is hard to obtain.”1 Humility, when viewed in the life of the winsome and vibrant Jesus Christ, becomes a most desirable trait, attractive to anyone. Along with Amanda many would argue, imperative as it is, that humility is hard to obtain. I would argue that humility is not only difficult to obtain, but it is impossible to obtain. Thankfully, humility may be attained through interventions.

What is the most important attribute of a classical, Christian tutor? Mastery of academic material, expertise in classical pedagogy, and the expression of natural charm or charisma in the classroom characterize a desirable tutor to some parents. Extraordinary biblical knowledge, administrative excellence, and clear communication skills define a highly sought-after tutor to others. Some would argue humility in the life of a tutor is required while others believe humility is an incidental benefit. Individually, humility in the nature of a tutor is hard to obtain. Humility in the life of a classical, Christian tutor is imperative for three reasons: humility allows tutors to support families in a mentoring relationship, humility permits honesty to permeate the lessons in the classroom, and humility invites the Holy Spirit to do His work in the lives of the tutor, students, and parents.
