It's summer once again and I need money. For the past few years I've been dabbling with various "start-ups" which were all well and good but weren't a constant stream of income as they usually involved doing a high margin one off job and leaving it at that (building home servers, setting up home alarm systems, CCTV security for local firms and the like). So now I want to try my hand at giving tuition - I have tutored my sis for a while and she's doing a lot better than I was at her age (also in a top 10 state school ) so I'm thinking of giving tuition to kids up to and including GCSE. Firstly what sort of documents would I require? I assume the criminal check (no idea what the real term is) but what else? Also how would I actually start up - other than word of mouth I haven't got much to go on to be honest. Are there online services? Are there any pitfalls as such - if there are any tutors here I would be most grateful for your insights. Cheers for reading guys. EDIT: I'm only going to be available till October too so how could I advertise my services, best I can think of is helping the kid prepare for the upcoming year. Maybe appeal to parents who really push their kids?
