Parents paying for 'Fortnite' online tutors

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

Private tutoring and test preparation in the US has grown into a $7bn industry and is continuing to grow with a slew of educational startups, like Varsity Tutors, where students can pay for extra help online.

Now, some parents are even shelling out for extracurricular lessons in the video game Fortnite, paying for online tutors to help their children perform to the best of their ability in the game’s survivalist Battle Royale function – where 100 online players compete in a fight to the death, with only one winner.

They should have just spend that money to teach their kids how to code so they can create websites.

Here's the thing.

I can see being addicted to, say, Battlefield, or GTA, or just ..anything. It's fine. It's just the shh itty graphics. What's the point of owning a next gen console with photo-real imagery if you're going to waste it on cartoony crud like this? Doesn't Far Cry or Just Cause have an online multiplayer feature? There you go, then. Play a real game, you slack-jawed little dullards.

This generation of kids, man. As never before, they're feckless beyond words.

This isn't new. There have been videogame tutors for ages, since I was a child playing Halo. I have a friend who was a professional Hearthstone player for a few years, he supported himself from prize winnings and by teaching. None of this is even remotely new, at all.

Thank you for your kind words :) Spend enough time around down-to-Earth, practical people, and they rub off on you, is all I can really say. The land really is the best teacher.

The industry moves fast - you better have a backup plan for your kid cause Fortnite could be dead in the water inside 5 years.
