Casual Tutoring Over Summer Holidays

Discussion in 'Private tutors' started by nikkichapman, Jun 12, 2012.

  1. I was recently asked by a friend whether I would be interested in tutoring her friend's children over the summer holidays. I have experience in tutoring 10 children in schools as part of the one-to-one tuition programme, and I have been teaching for two years.
    I was wondering if it is legal for me to take this on myself? Would I be able to put it on my CV if so? Do I have to tell anyone about it such as my employer or the tax man? Would cash in hand be ok? I used to get paid around £25 an hour for tutoring in schools. How much would be appropriate to ask a parent to pay?
    Any advice on this issue would be much appreciated.

    It's perfectly legal, but you will need to register as self-employed and then complete a tax return at the end of the year. No reason why you shouldn't put it on your CV. I charge £25 per hour for KS2 and 3, if this helps.
    Good luck!

    You are being paid.
    Of course you need to declare it. [​IMG]
  4. Hi Nikki,
    Yes, cash in hand is ok but I wouldnt be telling anyone or you can be reported.
    £25.00 is about standard per hour for tutoring. I know loads of parents willing to pay this for one to one tutoring as opposed to paying a tutoring college for group learning.
    Good luck
