I currently work as TA and I'm also half way through a full-time degree in Learning and Teaching. I'm thinking of setting up as a private tutor to boost my income. Several parents have already asked me if I do this and have expressed an interest in me tutoring their children. I've been looking through the posts on this forum and have found lots of useful information to help me get started, but I'm unsure about the issue of insurance (I will be tutoring in the child's home rather than in my home). Do I need liability / indemnity insurance of any kind? (I'm not sure whether I am just being paranoid as my previous existence as a financial adviser required all sorts of things!!). All help appreciated!! Thanks.
