    I have a new tutoring student who I have discovered may end up in my class at school (I teach primary). How concerned would you be about this? I don't think it matters while it is only a maybe but if it does come to pass would you consider it a total no-no? Or perhaps it is normal for you to tutor children you also teach? Any opinions would be appreciated. Thanks.

    I won't tutor people in my own classes (or school for that matter) , but I do know people who do. It can cause complications - but can also appear to work for some people.It really comes down to personal choice and any school rules. Sorry for not helping much!

    I've had students that I teach, and others in the same school actually approach me and ask if I would tutor them. I told them if it was OK with their parents it was OK with me.
    Unless it's specifically in your contract then **** any school rules: they are not legally enforceable.

    I do it all the time, I teach part time and tutor part time.
    It was the school that asked me in the first place.

    Thanks for your responses. My preference would be for children from other schools, I like that it's then more separate. However, I don't feel strongly enough to turn the work down so it's good to hear it's up to me really (no school rules I have been made aware of).

    If only I could tutor the many students I offer extra curricular sessions to at my school and get paid for it: I'd be able to retire next week!
