Teaching and learning

Several things happen in these chapters, including Gerry’s descriptions of his tutors, George and Theodore.

Which man seemed to relate better to the boy? To be a better teacher?

Also, what did you think of the houseguests and the frequent moves? Who is really in charge in the Durrell family, as far as  you can see? Why?
