Dear Tutors, Please Take Care of Yourselves

A highly dedicated tutor with whom I have maintained constant online correspondence for a long while dropped this shocker about him having suffered a mild stroke because he was overworked:

If you think private tutors (yes there exist conscientious ones who genuinely believe in going the extra mile to assist their students in whatever way they can) aren't as stressed out as school teachers, hopefully this will make you consider twice. So to all you hardworking tutors trying your very best to make a difference, please take care of yourselves and don't compromise your well-being, for the sake of your families and students. Striving to deliver beyond more shouldn't come at the expense of one's health. And a personal plea to students and parents hiring these tutors, please kindly do not take their (at times exceedingly strenuous) efforts for granted. Accord them proper respect, and above all, sufficient appreciation and concern. They deserve it.
