Can a private tutor give information to someone requesting information?

Like if someone random says "what year at uni was he in" or "tell me more about him" by phone or email.

Can a private tutor give information pertaining to me? Is it also against the law?

No? Why would they?
They are there to teach someone- the most they would do to get a potential future tutee would be give info on what they have taught and maybe if there was a grade improvement? (in comparison to before the tutoring started)

What if someone random (not another tutor) wanted some info on my history? Or something about me by phone or email?

Is there something against the law to protect me?

It's probably not against the law for the tutor to divulge information, but isn't ethically right. The only person who could force the tutor to talk about you is the police.

If I were a tutor, I would be very suspicious of the caller if they wanted to know info about one of my students. I would simply refuse to speak to them.
