Private tuition is big business
One-on-one tuition has exploded into a major industry that annually serves huge numbers of clients across the UK. Setting up a tutoring business can be a great way to earn supplemental income or even make a career change if you’re successful enough. The hourly rates are a very significant attraction, but the independence and flexibility that tutoring allows are also important: a tutor can work on a part time basis as a self-employed person in tandem with working in some other capacity or in some other field.
We have just added a new Tuition Services Agreements subfolder to the IR35 & Self-Employment Group in the Business Folder. If you are a self-employed full or part-time tutor/teacher/mentor/coach or instructor, one of our three new template agreements can be used when you contract to provide services to your clients.
These new agreements are suitable for use where you deal with individual clients (adults or children) requiring one-to-one tuition etc. for their private (i.e. not business) use. The topics covered may be Maths, English, or any other academic subjects, learning a musical instrument, any business/commercial or IT/technical subject, a foreign language, ESOL, or any practical, creative, or life skill subject.
These agreements are comprehensive, and they contain various optional and alternative clauses to allow for considerable flexibility. To avoid any misunderstandings or disputes, they include clauses covering in detail various key topics, including booking, cancellation, fees, tutor’s and client’s commitments to each other, and tutor’s qualifications.
