Parents Are Hiring Fortnite Teachers For Themselves And Their Kids

It's not everyday that you see a news story that says parents are actually encouraging their kids to play Fortnite but here we are. Most rates depend on the coach, but the cost hovers around $15 to $50 per hour for three to four hours of coaching.
The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) spoke to several families who have hired coaches specialising in the online game's survivalist Battle Royale function - where around 100 players compete in a fight to the death, with just one victor.
A recent Wall Street Journal article detailed the experiences of various parents who hired tutors to help their children "git gud". With individual tournaments paying over a $130,000 and boasting of an overall $8 million prize pool; who can blame them for wanting their kid to have a better chance at winning? Some parents get all judgey and share those memes that remind us of how much we all played outside as a kid. Another parent, Nick Mennen, said that coaching had helped his son rack up multiple wins a day in the battle royale. "There's pressure not to just play it but to be really good at it", Hicks said. When you think of hiring a tutor, the first thing that probably comes to mind is going to school school and getting an education.
Another parent noted that their 12-year-old son was struggling to win when competing in FortniteBattle Royale.
And while some parents are anxious about their kid'sgaming addiction, others are now splashing out on private coaches to help their child excel at the popular 'Fortnite:Battle Royale'.
