Ditch your math tutor, get one for Fortnite

Fortnite was big news on Tuesday, when the Wall Street Journal published a feature looking at parents who hire tutors to help their kids (and themselves) get good. It is so socially relevant, that successful participation in the game has an impact on how kids feel about themselves and others.

There are tutors for football, chess, and piano.  But the internet responded with a number of reactions: Shock, incredulity, disgust, derision, even outright horror. In many circles, there is still a stigma for people, especially kids, playing video games as a justified past time or hobby.

Parents are turning to tutors for a variety of reasons, the article reveals. Some want to help their kids win more. Others are taking the lessons themselves, so they can better keep up with their more skilled progeny. Still others have turned it into a parent-child bonding activity.
