Did you know?

The Latin verb tueri means “to look at” or “to guard.” When tutelage first began appearing in print in the early 1600s, it was used mainly in the protective sense of tueri, as writers described serfs and peasants of earlier eras as being “under the tutelage of their lord.” Over time, however, the word’s meaning shifted away from guardianship and toward instruction. This pattern of meaning can also be seen in the related nouns tutor, which shifted from “a guardian” to “a private teacher,” and tuition, which now typically refers to the cost of instruction but which originally referred to the protection, care, or custody by a parent or guardian over a child or ward.
