A few days ago, I read a synonym of ‘homeroom teacher’, regretfully I remembering not from which I’ve read. And I remember the dictionary I looked up said the word is mainly used in Britain. Can you say the word?

    I do not know the US system, but I think homeroom teacher is the closest to what is called a form tutor in Britain.
