Greenville is somewhat overpopulated and finding work here can be quite challenging if you are over 50 and haven't worked in a while

I am not certain if I understand the question. I do not determine someone's value by their age, and I would not expect others to do so either. In a tutoring situation, I would expect that a tutor's knowledge on a given subject would be more relevant than his/her age. I have had excellent experience tutoring middle school/high school student on formal subjects; and I currently mentor several college-aged persons on self-awareness and career investigations.
