Tutoring Qualifications

Post by WanWanWan » Tue, 05 Feb 2013 10:53 pm

I will be moving to Singapore in a few months. My spouse has a job lined up immediately, but my job doesn't start until next year. Until then, I'd like to be doing something. Here in Australia, I've always done high school and university tutoring on the side (because I enjoy it), and I'd quite like to do the same in Singapore to fill in the seven month gap a little.

Do I need to complete any government paperwork to do this? Or can I just sign up with a tutoring agency right away?

I should add that I have tertiary qualifications in all my subject areas, as well as a postgrad degree and (Australian) teaching qualifications.

I don't want to get a job at a school--there would be no point for just a few months. I like one-on-one (or one-on-few) tutoring. What do I need to do? I don't want to step on any official toes, yet I can't find anything on all the official sites about tutoring rather than school teaching. Hopefully that means I'm all clear, but I may have missed something that someone more knowledgeable here can inform me about.

unregulated industry. any one can be a private tutor.

as for working without a permit/visa and how to declare your income... that's a different story.
