Student views of who distance tutors are

Visible to anyone in the world
It occurs to me it would be interesting to know who students think distance tutors are.  This is largely prompted by the fact that a student phoned me up at twenty past midnight last night.  Does he think we are counter cultural bohemians who stay up late or that we are robots who do not need sleep?  Actually I was still awake but I think we often assume that late phone calls are harbingers of bad news rather than extension requests.

Yes, we all think late-night calls are harbingers of doom.  Your tudent is thoughtless and rude.  Fail him.

I assume you are joking.  He will get the mark he should get based on his work.
