Insurance as a tutor or private teacher
As a tutor you aim to provide the best education and experience for your clients. But what happens if they take issue with your style or content, or they blame failures in their own business on your advice? If a school, education authority, student or parent claims there’s a problem with your work, such as failing to cover a syllabus correctly, defending yourself could be expensive and time consuming. Having the right teachers’ insurance in place makes sure you’re covered.
Why you need business insurance for tutors and private teachers
Injured and unable to work
A cycling accident on the way to a school results in a swimming teacher suffering a serious injury. It means she’ll be hospitalised for a number of weeks. As she can’t work for a while, personal accident cover with her teachers insurance ensures a weekly pay-out to help cover rent, bills and other costs.
Parents claim negligence
Failure to achieve a top grade in an A-level exam leads to a student’s parents claiming the private teacher missed parts of the syllabus. A legal defence is required and clears the teacher of negligence. The defence costs are covered by the professional indemnity insurance for the self-employed teacher.
Held liable for a student’s accident
A student trips over music equipment on the floor, breaking her arm. The equipment belongs to her private dance teacher and the student’s parents believe the teacher was negligent. A legal claim is covered by the teacher’s public liability insurance, helping to cover the legal costs of a settlement.
