Here are Answers for Common Questions

Yes, it is. The majority of our teachers continue to work full-time or part-time in their schools; some have recently moved, or are planning to move, into more full-time tuition roles. Our teachers come from the State, Grammar and Independent School Sectors; with experience across Primary, Secondary and Further Education. Many of our teachers work with one or two clients each week, others perhaps only want one role each year. All can choose how much or how little they wish to do, and can organise their own rhythms and routines for lessons, to fit in with their own busy lives.
There is an increasing demand for high quality tuition and we are increasingly busy managing requests throughout the year, apart from the quiet months in late July and early August. It is difficult to predict how many roles we will be able to offer you, as this is dependent upon the range of subjects and levels you can offer and also the location in which you are based: busier urban areas have many more requests than remote rural areas. Some of our tutors work with as many as six or seven clients; others with one or two families each week, while others just take on one or two jobs each year. Teachers can choose how much or how little they wish to do and can organise their own rhythms and routines for lessons. Many placements are medium to longer term; lessons generally are weekly, 60 mins for younger children and 90+ mins for senior students and adults.
Some teachers choose to become full-time tutors, although it can take a while for an individual to build up a full portfolio of clients. This is also dependent upon the subjects you can offer and your location. If it is your ambition to leave the classroom and become a full-time tutor, we would advise that you begin by registering with two or three good quality tutor agencies; also to advertise yourself as a private tutor, perhaps with your own website; also not to undercharge your fees and to only accept good quality clients and families. Over a year or two, you will begin to build up your reputation in your local area ... and you will gradually build up your own business.
There are many tutor agencies that you can register with; most offer undergraduates, students, retired academics and others, as tutors. Tuition fees in some agencies can start from as low as £15ph. Some agencies charge tutors to register with them and to join their website, uploading and maintaining their profile; other agencies take a slice of the tuition fee leaving the tutor with less. It is worth taking your time to look around for the best options for you.
Teachers to Your Home is run by a small team of teachers based in Oxford and we work with over 18,000 teachers across the UK. Our ambition is to provide the highest quality of service to our families ... and also to our teachers. We work only with qualified teachers. We do not charge our teachers anything to register with us, nor do we publish public profiles or photos on our website. We offer our teachers preferential rates and tuition fees are transferred directly from the family to the teacher’s bank account at the end of each month.
Our teachers can organise their own schedules and can take on as many roles as they wish. We do not micro-manage the process and trust our teachers to manage the ambitions and expectations of families; and to ensure excellent teaching and learning. We do not require access to any paperwork, copies of lesson plans, assessments etc.
We also offer a professional and personal touch; we are not simply an online portal. We value talking with our teachers and are available to do so at any time, including evening and weekends.

Safeguarding is the action that is taken to promote the welfare of children and to protect them from harm. It is also the action that is taken to protect teachers or tutors from any false allegations of misconduct.
All current serving teachers should have an enhanced DBS certificate and full DBS clearance. We are a registered provider with ukcrbs and can apply for or renew your DBS certificate, if required. We would also encourage teachers to register with the DBS update service, so that they do not need to apply for a new DBS certificate every few years.
We further promote safeguarding by asking our teachers to provide tuition at the family home, in a supervised setting, with a parent or guardian present.
Yes, if you are still current and up-to-date with your teaching and the requirements of Exam Boards and a changing curriculum.
Tuition Fees are transferred directly from the family to the teacher’s bank account at the end of each month, less our commission, which is inclusive of vat. Generally, families will pay between £40ph to £48ph: teachers receive all of £36ph for Primary, KS3 and GCSE: £40ph for A level. Our full Tuition Fees are published on our website.
Once you are registered with us, you will receive regular e-mails from us detailing tuition roles, which match your skills and location, normally within 15 to 20 miles of your postcode. You will be given a brief or the requirement, age group, exam board, school, location of home for the tuition and distance from you. If you are interested in the job, we ask you to click on a link within the e-mail to register your interest in this role. This instructs us to put you forward for the role, enabling you to have a chat with the family, to see if it is a good fit for you.
Once you are registered with us, you will receive e-mails from us detailing potential roles for you, within your area.

You can also phone us or send an e-mail, if you prefer, or if you have any further detail you would wish to add.
Lessons generally take place at the family home. Some clients are businesses and request tuition to take place at their offices. Sometimes, children are at a boarding school and request for tuition within their school or boarding house. Occasionally, if all parties agree, lessons can be scheduled at the teacher’s home or at some neutral setting (eg. local library or café).
The service that we offer, and which families are expecting, is a qualified teacher to go to their home, to provide tuition. Occasionally, after discussion, both the family and teacher prefer to relocate the lessons to the teacher’s home or to some neutral setting (eg. local library or café). If this is agreed by all, then lessons can take place in any setting. Sometimes parents will request a reduction in fee by £5ph if the parents are travelling to the teacher.
Most families tend to want regular weekly lessons, sometimes fortnightly. Other families require tuition over holiday periods, some do not. Most parents ask for lessons during early evening or over weekends. Parents who are home schooling their children prefers day time lessons, to create a similar structure to a school day. The tuition can start and stop at any time and we do not ask for parents to commit to or pay for lessons in advance. The routine and rhythm of lessons is established after discussions between the family and teacher. It must be a good fit for all concerned; the child, the family and the teacher. Most roles tend to last many months or years.
The service that we offer, and which families are expecting, is a qualified teacher to go to their home, to provide tuition. Occasionally, after discussions, both the family and teacher are happy for on-line tuition. We generally reduce the rate by £5ph, for both the family and tutor, to accommodate this.
The expectation is that tuition should be in a supervised setting, with a parent or responsible adult present at the home, though not necessarily sitting in on the lessons. In our experience, our teachers often build long and strong relationships with families and most are happy to teach without parents being present all the time, particularly with home schooling arrangements, when the teacher may be giving many hours of tuition for a child each week.
We do not offer free or trial lessons, though sometimes teachers are happy to have an initial meeting with families, to introduce themselves more fully and to talk through details before the tuition begins. In this case, we ask our teachers to be clear with the family whether this session will be charged for or not.

We request that clients give "reasonable" notice if a lesson needs to be cancelled. We request the same "reasonableness" if a teacher needs to cancel at the last minute. We do not specify a 24 hour cancellation policy, which is difficult to enforce. eg. a child is suddenly taken ill etc. We recommend that, in the initial meeting between family and teacher, that both parties discuss what is reasonable notice for them and further discuss a clear process for communicating any last-minute cancellations; eg. sending a text or phone call etc. If notice of a cancellation is not reasonable, then the teacher would expect to charge the family for the lesson and would let them know this. We also would advise teachers to keep the bigger picture in mind and consider the importance of maintaining a good relationship with a family. Our experience is that this situation rarely happens and, if it does, the family generally are happy to pay for the cancelled lesson.
Though this is a smaller part of our business, there is an increasing demand for quality home schooling, with more families choosing this as an alternative to formal schooling. We currently support a number of families who have chosen home schooling; some have been dissatisfied by their local schools, others are seeking extra academic challenge for very academically gifted children; others have children with learning needs that a busy teacher cannot cater for and others have children who find the school environment too stressful for them to reach their potential. Teachers who support home schooling need to be available to provide lessons through the daytime and often for many hours each week. They also need to be able to commit to supporting the family for the long term, to enable continuity for the child.
Our teachers teach a large number of adults, who enjoy learning new things. Many are keen to study through the daytime or at weekends; perhaps to learn a new language, or study for a History A level, or develop their Computing skills, or pick up their Maths again. Some want to pass an exam, while others just want to keep on learning for their own enrichment. We also support a number of businesses, often requesting language tuition to develop their staff teams to support international links.
We require you to complete a timesheet at the end of each month, recording all the lessons you have taught that month. This timesheet is accessed on-line through our website.
We send a copy of your timesheet through to you and to your clients, to enable them to check through it and approve it. Tuition fees are transferred directly from the family to your bank account within two days.
Clients receive a of their teacher’s timesheet at the end of each month, which provides a record of the tuition they have received that month, for them to check though and approve. Payment is then made online by credit or debit card by the family and the Tuition Fees are transferred directly through to the teachers bank account.
We follow up any debtors robustly, using our debt recovery service. Our experience is that we rarely have any debtors. Most families will pay their fees, though sometimes need a couple of nudges to do so.
If you are happy to accept this arrangement then we would inform the family that they would be charged an extra £6ph for each lesson and we would increase your fee by an extra £6ph.
We do not charge any registration fee, nor are there are any ongoing costs at all for our teachers. We work only with qualified teachers, who receive a professional fee of £35ph or £36ph for Primary Tuition, 11+, 13+, Key Stage 3 and GCSE Tuition; £40ph+ for A level Tuition. Our teachers receive all this fee, transferred to them at the end of each month. All teachers are self-employed as tutors, acting as consultants for Teachers To Your Home Ltd.
Our teachers will generally provide all of their own teaching and learning resources. If there are any exceptional costs, eg. an expensive text book required etc. then, if and as advised by the teacher, parents will generally be happy to pay for these.
We are a registered provider with ukcrbs and can apply for or renew your DBS certificate. If you wish us to process a DBS certificate for you, this will cost you £57.30. (DBS charge of £44, ukCRB's admin fee of £10, credit card charge £1.08 plus VAT on the £11.08). It takes about 2 to 3 weeks for us to process this.
Clients and families agree to the following terms and conditions.
The status of a tutor is classified as self-employed. Teachers To Your Home Lts is the disclosed agent for its teacher who act as consultants for the company. Our teachers agree to the following terms and conditions.

You will need to register as self-employed with HMRC to make sure you pay the correct Income Tax and National Insurance for your wages. As a sole trader you will have to complete a self-assessment tax return every year after 5th April, which you can do online. You must do this even if you are also employed elsewhere, as this can change how much you are taxed altogether across all of your employment.

What you will pay in Income Tax depends on how much of your income is above your Personal Allowance, and how much of this falls within each tax band. The current 2017/18 tax-free Personal Allowance in the UK is £11,500. This is the amount of income that you can earn a year that you don’t have to pay tax on. Anything you earn over this amount will be taxed, and the tax you pay will depend on how much you earn above your personal allowance.

It is crucial that you register as self-employed and submit details of your income to the government within three months of starting your work. Failure to do this puts you at risk of being audited and paying a fine.

Most tutoring agencies, including Teachers To Your Home Ltd, operate on the basis that all payment is to be managed solely between the tutor and the student. This means that all payment and income records are your own responsibility, and you must therefore keep a detailed record of your earnings for HMRC.

How Do I Complete a Self-Assessment Form?

For a simple and easy self-assessment process, it’s important to have ready all the necessary information you need for your personal circumstances. In becoming a private tutor, you should be keeping records of your income and have all the relevant paperwork up to date to make this process as straightforward as possible.

For your self-assessment form you will need:

  • Records of your income and expenses
  • If you are also employed, your PAYE earnings
  • Any ‘other income’ records, such as pensions, savings or investments
  • A cheque book and paying-in book
  • Your P60
  • Your bank statements or online banking access

You will need to fill in a self-assessment form called SA100, which is available on the HMRC website. There are guidance notes available to help you during the process of filling out the form. There are supplementary pages of the self-assessment form to fill out if you have more than one self-employed job. These will give you the opportunity to declare any earnings from other jobs that you have as a sole trader. This can be filled out by hand and posted, or filled out and submitted online. HMRC can send you the relevant forms for your circumstances and the guidance notes to help you fill them out. They can also be downloaded from their website. If you are completing the form online, you must register and make a login on the HMRC website. You will then receive a password which will grant you access to the online forms. You will receive the password in the post, which can sometimes take a couple of weeks, so it’s a good idea to leave yourself plenty of time.

The deadline for a tax return by post is 31st October. If you complete the forms online, then you have until 31st January. A penalty of £100 can be given if you miss these deadlines.

If you have any problems, please see the HMRC website. You can call the HMRC Self-Assessment helpline on 0845 9000 444.
