I also want to go into private tuition. However, I only teach maths up to GCSE level...
...By the way, I too was thinking of writing to schools to introduce myself. However, before I did that, I went to 2 local schools to ask them if they could put up small A5 size posters (which I had printed) advertising my tuition services. Both turned me down saying that would mean that the school is endorsing my skills, which they cannot do. Following those responses. I am now in 2 minds of whether or not to write to the schools.
Any advice greatly appreciated.

I am considering returning to doing some private tutoring, but have no DBS (the old CRB check) as my current teaching role does not require it.
I've checked on the gov.uk website and, as with the old CRB, only employers can get for an applicant.
Do people want private tutors to have the DBS? And if so - how do others go about getting it?
I suspect that joining an agency may be the only way? Not really keen to do that as they don't seem to generate much work for tutors from what I've heard.
There’s a trick to extend them
