With Fortnite only seeming to increase in popularity since its release last year, many users have become incredibly competitive, with a strong desire to prove themselves as one of the best -- a concept that's opened the door for in-game tutoring services.

As The Wallstreet Journal reports, many parents have shelled out anywhere between $10 and $50 USD an hour to have a "Fortnite coach" teach their child to better their skills. Although this may seem wasteful to some, these parents site their desire to support their child's dream of becoming a successful esports gamer, where the prizes from winning major competitions can be incredibly lucrative.

Given the money that's in the esports industry, it's likely that these in-game tutoring services will only keep expanding to accommodate more hopeful pro gamers.
