The business of preparing students to take the SAT exam was a $310 million-a-year industry in 2005, according to the Washington Post. Today it has been ballooned “anywhere between $1 billion and $4 billion,” said Forbes.

One upscale Manhattan tutoring company offers private tutoring starting at $195 per 50 minutes.
