I am currently working as a private tutor. The pupils come to me. Do I need insurance?
I don't think it's compulsory but personally I wouldn't proceed without it. I arranged mine through my union, ATL, who had arranged a special deal with a firm in Norwich.
I do not think it is a good idea to teach pupils in your own home. It means the pupil has to have an adult present and the pupils will not be so relaxed in a strange place. I think it is best to teach them in their own home where a parent/ guardian is there and the pupils are more relaxed in their own home. Also, you do not need insurance.
thank you for the replies - I have arranged insurance through the union, thank you!
