Hi 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 (childcare issues) 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! Thanks!
