The wrong part is, that most "instructors" use their "clients" as guinea pigs and adjust their "interpretation" over time. Imagine you get a tutor for your child and they "teach" them math but some 2 weeks into the tuition, the collage kid tutor says: "Listen, what I tought you some time ago is not completely correct so we'll have to revisit that topic. I just learned a few new things the other day myself after i looked deeper into hat one problem we couldn't solve." Now, that wouldn't fly with you, right?
There is nothing wrong with instruction as long as you are honest about it and don't charge for it.
I think a science tutor deserves to be paid for tutoring regardless of whether they're tutoring in a well-established field of science or a new-and-rapidly-evolving field of science. You're paying them for their attention and effort and time.
