The Ultra-Wealthy Tutoring Market
Hah! Math 800?
I snapped that pic at my local government library not too long ago.
Me? No I got a 790 on my Math SAT some 20 years ago. Please don't ask me how I was demerited a measly 10 points; I recall finishing the sections in about 11 minutes apiece. Usually *one wrong* would bump a Moron down to 780 or 770. So I must not have darkened in a circle enough (unlikely) or the machine malfunctioned in reading my answers (likely). Whatever - I did score 800 on the Math Level 2 exam, I did win the high scoring honors for my regional team at ARML(twice), and I did grab a few other chest-enhancing accolades. And now I'm here boasting pathetically like Biff Loman about his glory days on the HS football field!
I wonder if that car belongs to a particular sky-high-priced SAT tutor guy in town.
Let me ask y'all a question...what do you think is an outrageous hourly rate for a math or SAT tutor?
I would say $150 or perhaps $200 per hour.
But get a load of this guy's rates:
Man, I have to get in on that racket!
