Firstly, Home Education, an educational path followed by some parents in the UK for their children is illegal in Cyprus.

Private tuition is an accepted element in Cyprus to help children further educationally develop. You will find adverts in the
local press and notice boards for Private Tutors offering a range of lessons and extracurricular activities. Perhaps your son or
daughter is struggling in one or more subjects, their school reports suggests extra help is needed. Private tuition may seem the
ideal way to resolve these issues.

So, you contact one of the tutors, arrange a time to meet and discuss your childrenís needs. He/she seems a nice person, appears to have a good understanding of the subject you are seeking help with. An hourly rate is agreed (normally cash) and an arranged time and day(s) each week.

The following week you drop off your son or daughter to start their additional lessons which you are convinced will help improve their grades.

Now take a moment to consider your actions. You have just left the most important thing in your life with a complete stranger, in a foreign Country. You have not checked their qualifications, asked to see a current a CRB / DBS / First Aid certificate and Cypriot Police report check. You have no CV so cannot take any references, not even a call to the Ministry of Education to verify the Tutor is licenced and authorised.

Letís be clear, we are not saying private tutors should be treated with suspicion. Sensible is safe, make sure the person you have appointed is qualified, after all you are paying for a service. Would you pay a hairdresser to remove your teeth? Would you pay a dentist to cut your hair?

Many teachers (and some non-qualified individuals) work as tutors privately to supplement their income so it is extremely important you check they are qualified to teach the subjects you are paying for. No matter how friendly or believable they may seem always ask to see their DfES number/Teacher Reference number (if they are British) and examine their CV. Insist on seeing evidence they are registered with the Cyprus Ministry of Education. If the tutor attemptís to convince you certificates and qualifications are not required (in Cyprus) then we would suggest you walk away.


ALWAYS CHECK THE TUTOR IS LICENCED BY THE CYPRUS MINISTRY OF EDUCATION AND HOLDS A CURRENT DBS CERTIFICATE Ė IF THE TUTOR IS NOT LICENCED THEN THEY WILL NOT BE REGULATED.

No matter how tempting only send your child to LICENSED tutor.

Almost all private tutors working from home will NOT hold professional indemnity and public liability insurance. Any accidents, trip or fall your child may have while in the tutors care may result in you picking up the medical care costs.

Ask to see all the resources they hold such as educational books and IT equipment, are they current and appropriate for the lessons they are offering ?

Always insist you receive regular written reports that can be shown to your childís teacher. A receipt for all monies paid. Also important is your child contented with the tutor, an unhappy child will not learn.
