    How big is the university tutoring market

    The high school tutoring market is fairly big (in particular year 12) but why isn't the university market

    Because there's literally a plethora of units.

    Units change constantly.

    Uni encourages independent work. Tutoring is due to demand. Not a lot of people have that demand of tutoring over 5 years of uni.

    the high school tutoring market is over saturated

    uni tutoring does exist but it's much more rare imo because there are plenty of other resources to help you like demonstrators, lecturers, tutorials, etc so it's not required most of the time. Also to find someone teaching exactly the course unit would be quite rare. Like high school math there are 20000+ people doing it but MATH1141 there are only a few hundered

    People don't care how well they do.

    People definitely care how well they do at university. Uni tutoring, unlike high school, is mainly for kids who are struggling to pass rather than those gunning for top marks. Completely different market. There are plenty of resources and the best students work for university as tutors anyway and they hold consults for you to go and ask qs for most units.

    No they just care about passing. But Ye the only students I've privately tutored have been ones at risk of failing

    You are either naive or a snake if you are suggesting that just 'passing' is what people want.

    yeah honestly if you're at uni, either you're trying to be an absolute gun (in which case you don't need tutoring) or you are just trying to scrape a pass
