I left my homework in the Hamptons : what I learned teaching the children of the one percent  Cover Image Book Book

I left my homework in the Hamptons : what I learned teaching the children of the one percent / Blythe Grossberg.

Summary:

"A captivating memoir about tutoring for Manhattan's elite, revealing how a life of extreme wealth both helps and harms the children of the one percent." -- Provided by publisher.
"When Grossberg first started as a tutor and learning specialist, she had no idea what awaited her inside the high-end apartments of Fifth Avenue. Children are expected to be as efficient and driven as CEOs, starting their days with 5:00 a.m. squash practice and ending them with late-night tutoring sessions. Meanwhile, their powerful parents will do anything to secure one of the precious few spots at the Ivy Leagues, whatever the cost to them or their kids. Here she shares her journey in the privileged world of America's wealthiest families and the systems in place that help them stay on top." --Adapted from jacket.
