Tutelage

I'm watching Inside the Actors Studio with Tom Hanks right now (I don’t watch American Idol) and he just used the word "tutelage." Isn't that a fun word to say? Tutelage. He was talking about being under the tutelage of someone.

tu•te•lage (n.)

  1. The capacity or activity of a guardian; guardianship.
  2. The capacity or activity of a tutor; instruction or teaching.
  3. The state of being under the direction of a guardian or tutor.

I'm going to use this word more. Just so I can say it.
