Feasibility of offering coaching for IB recruiting?

For context, I'm a Senior who interned at a BB and am returning to my group next Summer as a FT IB analyst. I've got a few gigs going on currently and am actually making pretty good money now while being a full-time student, but I've always been intrigued by the idea of offering coaching or "tutoring" for investment banking recruiting prep. Coming from a non-target, I know I wish I had more resources during recruiting, and if I'd come from a wealthier background, I totally would've paid $60+ an hour for a couple of sessions to get my bearings straight with recruiting. Today I started thinking about it again since my sister was talking about charging $125 an hour for various middle/high school tutoring, which is nuts to me, so surely some people would pay half that for recruiting, networking, and interviewing advice to break into this field?Anyways, does anyone have experience offering tutoring/coaching for recruiting as a business (more than just helping a friend or two)? Or any tips on how I could monetize my baseline level of experience of grinding recruiting myself and ultimately getting multiple offers from different banks, and being the first kid from my school to land BB in 5+ years?Thanks!
For those saying "help them for free", guys, of course I help people for free, basically anyone that reaches out to me for help, from my school or not! This is purely asking if there's a way to monetize this in ADDITION to ofc helping people for free too, but like a service outside of that!

Don't be a scumbag. You should mentor kids for free... Not charge them to "coach"

Knew a kid in undergrad who charged freshman for recruiting advice... Total clown. Be a good person and pay it forward. Not that this industry if full of great people, but at the very least, it's built on mentorship

Coaching a kid with bad stats is probably useless. I'd probably recommend helping out in your school's IB/Finance club and also maybe having a talk (seminar) to incoming freshman about what it takes to have a good IB profile.

Just help them for free, if they break into the industry then they'll remember you and might be a valuable connection in the future

Or just do it to be a nice guy
