"Fortnite" is a popular Battle Royale game from Epic Games, and may be played on numerous platforms, including iPhone, Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. That's where the money is, ain't it?

Amid the popularity of the game Fortnite: Battle Royale started appearing eSports coaches offering their services to teach children the finer points of the gameplay. When you think of hiring a tutor, the first thing that probably comes to mind is going to school school and getting an education.
