If I request a tutor will the one who is assigned to me be chosen randomly or is there some mechanism for matching me to someone who will 'suit' me (and, of course, vice versa) as I would imagine that that would have quite an effect on how I experience the course!

I'm a new arrival, with a question, if I may?
I'm not entirely sure why I'm now drawn to consider structured exploration and study of something I've always taken for granted as instinctive connection. Or perhaps I have some idea, but it involves a strange meeting, a question, some stormy weather, a song, and a seal, and makes little sense to me, and likely less to others! But it led me to OBOD and the training offered here.
One thing I notice browsing the introductory articles and audio excerpts here, are the Welsh tales and harp music and groves and robes, and even the species of trees, all giving me a sense of being 'of the south, of southern lands'. Which gives me pause, for I'm normally appreciative of the kinship among Celtic cultures. So I'm hesitating long enough to ask, is there a druidry or pagan tradition of the northern lands, of Scotland or the Islands or even Scandinavia? Of sheepskins and furs, of fires, of harsh landscapes and wild weather and music to match? A lot of what I read resonates, but sometimes in a slightly foreign way with my lived experience up here in the north of Scotland. I'd rather not subtly translate if there a local dialect handy, so to speak. Or is the OBOD course such that smelting my own unique connection and practice within the greater community is one of my tasks along the path?
I realise that southern and northern are very relative terms! and that this is an international community, practicing all over the world ~ which i'm also curious about, in relation to my question.
Harder than I thought to put into words ~ I hope I make sense! I'm grateful for any thoughts on this.

In my experience, there has been a really well thought out attempt in the creation of the material of the gwersi to be inclusive and global. This doesn't pull the material up by its roots; it is all firmly situated. It's definitely not all Welsh, though but sourced from many places. And it always comes with the suggestion to find your own meaning in it or make it personally relevant, or discard it altogether if it doesn't feel right.
Yes, we do have order members from all over the world, from very different backgrounds and living in many different situations. I promise you, your lived (and felt) experience ofwill fit right in.sheepskins and furs, of fires, of harsh landscapes and wild weather and music
