    I'm seriously considering setting up and working from home.I have no formal teaching qualification but have many years experience in 7-11 SEN. Do any of you work from home? What are the pit falls or benefits? What hours do you usually work? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    If you are planning to teach from home you will need suitable insurance (public liability I think). Also don't forget that most children would only be available to teach between the hours of 4 and 7 if primary (even 7 is pushing it a bit) so you may struggle to earn enough.

    Thanks. That's what I was thinking with the hours but as an income supplement that would be fine. What insurance companies do any of you use? I'm totally at a loss on how to start up!!
