What’s the difference between a mentor and a tutor?

Tutoring and mentoring have similar aims – to support people to achieve their goals. Let’s take a closer look at some of the similarities and differences.


  • Tutoring and mentoring both aim to boost confidence and wellbeing
  • Both forms of support are individual-focused.Tutoring sessions are tailored to the learning needs of the learners, while mentoring aims to support the recipient.
  • Tutors and mentors can either be selected or assigned


  • Tutoring has a more academic focus, while mentoring offers more general support
  • Tutoring sessions are more structured in terms of time scale, process and outcome
  • Tutors have specified knowledge about a subject or the curriculum
  • A mentor-student relationship can be more informal than tutoring, as sessions may involve play or a walk in the park
  • In mentoring, results are less quantifiable and more about the person’s own sense of wellbeing
