Tales Of Tutoring The Children Of 'The One Percent'

Untitled drawing (5).jpg

"If I had a million dollars..." Go ahead and complete that sentence. But if living in Manhattan is part of the sentence, you'll need more money.

People who live on Fifth Avenue have quite a bit of disposable income, but a fair amount of anxiety, too.

Blythe Grossberg found that out when she worked as a tutor to the children of rich families.

They have privilege, sure, but also worry about competing with the other rich kids and getting into good colleges.

Grossberg tells the story in her book I Left My Homework in the Hamptons: What I Learned Teaching the Children of the One Percent.

We get a sample of the experience in an interview with the author.
