if you can't figure out how to offer a better service than testmasters, you should probably just give up on life

my pay-in-advance rate was $50, compared to your advertised $67. always asked students what they could afford, always negotiated rates, never turned anyone away due to an inability to pay. unlike you, i'm not a greedy scam artist with contempt for my students

gee, idk, maybe you could sit down with the kid like he was a human being instead of an atm machine and talk to him about his goals.
you're a middleman. you find clients, you find quasi-qualified people to teach them, you take a cut. don't pretend this is some noble endeavor. you have no moral high ground here
