Advice for setting up as a tutor

    I am leaving full time teaching in December and want to set up as a tutor. I would welcome advice from anyone out there who has gone through this process. I already tutor in the evenings, travelling to students' homes. Ideally, however, I would like to work from home and would like to be able to offer small group sessions (the idea being that this will make it more affordable, both for me and students). Can any one tell me:
    The legalities of tutoring from home
    The legalities/possible problems of small group tutoring
    Also, although I understand it wouldn't be necessary, has anyone used an agency to get a DBS certificate independently? If so - recommendations please!

    Hi. It might be worth asking the same questions on the Private Tutors forum.
    You might find that there are people who can give you more specific information about the ins and outs!
