Interesting question. Discussing "ageism" in class is one of my favorite topics.
I am a student as well and I can tell you that it is a personal question
Some students prefer young tutors while others prefer old tutors.
Experience has its own benefits, but it's also up to the student-tutor relationship in general which may or may not be age related.
No it don't matter. It's about learning the fundamentals of English Language to interact day to day with persons. For help with that check my profile.
It all depends on tastes and preferences. others love young tutor others old
It depends on what the student prefers and feels comfortable with. Young tutors might be excellent with young students having a lot of energy and older tutors might be excellent for older students where they feel more comfortable with a tutor with a lot of experience. All depends on the student.
