Tutoring and Friends and Money

I can't really recommend students to my friends who want to moonlight as tutors.

From the way they say it, I can't help feeling the sole reason for tutoring is Money.

Tutoring feels as though it should be a much higher calling, the privilege to assist people to grow and discover knowledge within himself, the opportunity to grow and develop alongside the student.

I'm an idealist, with romantic thoughts of how education should be like.

While I recognise the need for material wealth to survive in this materialistic world which judges everyone in a material manner, I am disturbed whenever I hear of people who teach because 'the money is good'.

Money should be the second, third, or even the fourth priority. But, it should not be the first and the upmost. The students and their well-being should be the first and foremost.
