I talked about the problem with my tutor.

I think it could mean "involving somebody as a participant".Am I correct?I want suggestions.Thanks

  • You mean the talk involving someone, or the problem involving someone?

Taken out of context, your sentence is ambiguous.
"I have a problem with my course work so I discussed it with my tutor."
"My tutor is not holding tutorials so I discussed it with the professor."
In either case with could be said to mean involving somebody as a participant but IMHO you are overthinking it. I both cases you just met with your tutor/professor to talk about a problem.
