Does anyone offer private tutoring? How much is the hourly going rate? Have you got to have a PGCE? I have a degree in English, a postgraduate qualification in English Language and three current enhanced DBS (CRB) certificates for my current voluntary work (is a DBS necessary?)

I do, but have a PGCE, worked in primary schools, and still work within education. You don't need any of these things though.

DBS isn't necessary, but the parents like it in my experience.

Rate is dependant on your area. Best thing to do is google "English tutor your area" to see what people are charging, and what their set up is. For example I ask pupils to come to me so charge slightly less that tutors who are willing to travel, as I can back to back my students so do more in an evening.

My dh does it. He has a Chemistry degree and pgce plus teaches A-level Chemistry.

He charges £30 per hour but only does A-level.

He's never been asked to show his DBS but I think parents are happy that he has one as he is employed in education.
