1) a tutor i.e. a guardian and guide of boys. Among the Greeks and the Romans the name was applied to trustworthy slaves who were charged with the duty of supervising the life and morals of boys belonging to the better class. The boys were not allowed so much as to step out of the house without them before arriving at the age of manhood.
From G3816 and a reduplication form of G71; a boyleader, that is, a servant whose office it was to take the children to school; (by implication [figuratively] a tutor [“paedagogue” ])
