Would you offer tutoring in a place you didn't own?

    Would you offer tutoring in a place you didn't own?

    Hey, would anyone offer tutoring services if you didn't have a location and had to do it in the Starbucks across the road from the school?  We need some quick cash and we're thinking of doing this, but we're not sure about the advisability/legality issue.

    In France, it could not be possible, because the law states that services like tutoring should occur at home, otherwise the person couldn't have the taxe refund.

    I don't know where you are, but I think that the first think to take in consideration, is the fact that if you do tutoring courses anywhere else, you must search a good insurance for you and the child, it's important.

    You could find maybe some web café to do this, for example, the place would be more adapted ... maybe ...

    Hope, it helps a little ! Good luck !

    In Singapore, I believe if you have license then it should not be a problem where you give the tuition.

    I have spent a few years tutoring children under the No Child Left Behind Act. Although most tutoring services would take place within the child's home, as long as there was a parent or guardian present, any public place free from distractions was suitable. However, a parent or guardian should always be present for the entire tutoring session. This protects both the student and the tutor from any questionable accusations.

    I tutor in a public library and I've never had any issues.  If you tutor in a coffee shop, it is expected that you purchase something so that you don't take space from paying customers, but if the shop is empty enough you shouldn't have any trouble.

    For safety reasons I suggest that you always meet with a client in a public place first.  An exception is if you are tutoring children, but I gather from your question that you are tutoring adults.

    I have done a bit of tutoring, and a coffee shop should be okay. If I was you, I would double check with the owner, if you're not sure.  Check the atmosphere of the place and see how much people tend to "linger," there and if the management seems to mind, or not. If everyone lingers, it shouldn't be an issue to do so, as well.

    What I tutored, mostly, was for ESL students. A good place to find them is to advertise on your classified's or at the local university.  I wish you all the best!
