Fortnite has become such a social phenomenon for people of all ages that even young kids are needing to get their status up on the game, as well as, prompt parents to pay for the coaches. "You can imagine what that was like for him at school". However, a new report suggests the latest boom area for private schooling isn't maths, English, or another academic subject - it's Fortnite. Ally Hicks, who paid for a Fortnite tutor for her 10-year-old son, told the WSJ: "There's pressure not to just play it, but to be really good at it". Until now, usually "adult hobbyists and older teenagers aspiring to go professional" sought the help of the coaches. Other parents are taking lessons themselves so they can bond with their children and keep up with their hobbies.
