    I am interested too, as owing to one to one teaching vanishing in our area I intend to start a business. How much is it per month? What must you do to 'prove' you are a fit tutor? Which companies are best? Would love different opinions.

    You can get public liability insurance through the NUT - they have a link.
    As for indemnity insurance - I'm not sure. At the end of the day, you cannot guarantee how a child will do in a test. Despite all your best efforts, responsibility comes down to the child.

    I was thinking the same about it being the student's responsibility to work hard too. And as I tutor mainly post-16, they are fully aware of what they need to do in terms of work/revision (and I remind them and their parent's of this regularly!) I'm assuming the indemnity insurance is more for people who are tutoring younger students to pass the 11+ exams for grammar/independent schools. But I may be wrong!!
     
  4. I used to do tutoring many years ago and always told the parents every 2 months what grade I expected the student to get if they were not going to make it I would make it fairly clear.I had a 98% pass rate.
