    Just a quick question do you go to the childs home or does the child come to yours.

    I go to the child's home too. I find it is easier to be professional outside of your own home, and my five-year-old would just not 'get it' that he had to leave mummy alone for an hour!

  • Hello

    My husband is a primary school teacher and is considering doing some private tuition in his school holidays. Some people we know have said that if he did think about doing it they would be interested (although would have to make sure they were serious enough to pay).

    He's not had much of a chance yet to look into it more since he decided on doing it, but I was wondering whether anyone had an idea of what to charge?

    I guess that he would also have to declare it as a self employed income?

    Thanks

    yes it would be taxable income.

    Good luck with his venture - seems like a logical way of making some extra money.

    Hi all,

    I've merged two threads about private tutoring, if we could keep all questions here then it will help people pick up helpful hints and tips.

    Thanks
  • Would you need to buy certain books etc and curriculum guides? Just woundering what the initial outlay would be?

    I charge £20/h for KS2 (don't have any KS1 at the moment) and everyone seems happy with that. Noone has yet said that it was more than they were expecting.

    Your husband may find though that most people want tuition during term time, and then want a break during holidays. Most of my pupils do that, although this last half term I was really busy with different pupils that were happy to come in the hols because it was the only time I could fit them in!:rotfl:

  • for a CRB check have you thought about doing some work for a voluntary organisation, they often required them
    not sure if it would work, but you could try contacting a childrens charity, explain that you would like to pay for a CRB check, but need someone to go through. Your local university or school may also be able to help....i'm sure someone out there would be able to help you.
  • Hi All
    I am embarking on setting up a tutor school for KS2 children and although I have my Cert Ed I also want a KS2 teacher onboard as well, as my qualification is based on Adult Learning.
    My initial thoughts were an agreed hourly rate with them (around 10hours a week) to tutor a group of up to eight children but not sure what a fair rate would be. Also thought about low rate to start (business not yet established) and offer a profit sharing scheme.
    Would be great to have any advice/guidance/info on this from anyone.

    The following site has a free guide to tutoring for people who are interested in tutoring:

    Site:
    www.aplustutors.co.uk

    Philip White's guide to "Profitable Tutoring":
    http://www.aplustutors.co.uk/tutors/profitable_tutoring-01.php

    It also has some advice for people looking for tutors:
    http://www.aplustutors.co.uk/students/faq.php

    In the distant past, I have advertised on the site (very successfully) as a tutor but it doesn't seem to be taking on new tutors at the moment. Still, worth visiting for the advice.
