    Hello Romia:

    The basic difference is that a "teacher" has a college degree in education, and is qualified to teach English.

    A "tutor" can be any interested person, even without a college degree in English Studies, who is willing to assist others in speaking and writing English.

    I, for example, qualify as a "tutor" but not as a "teacher" because I do not have a college degree. I have a High School Diploma and no more.
