Regardless of experience, private tutors may face lawsuits
Your clients may need help with school or a particular exam. In an ideal world, your expertise will help them understand challenging concepts and breeze through the curriculum. But sometimes, you may make mistakes as a private tutor. If you fail to meet your client’s expectations, APOLLO Insurance can support you financially by covering the cost of legal fees and damage awards. This lets your tutoring business remain economically secure, so you can focus on your students.
Tutoring may not seem inherently risky. But accidentally teaching a wrong method or outdated material can lead to poor results for your students. If your students fail their course or exam, it could mean an expensive reexamination process, and they may try to pass these costs on to you through a lawsuit. Given this, you need to protect yourself legally. Professional liability insurance would cover any legal fees or damage award costs if a client sues you for negligent services.
Your tutoring services are valuable to many individuals. Without these services, some students may remain confused about core testable concepts. However, if you don’t hold the proper insurance, you’re at risk of facing financial hardship. The right insurance can take this risk off your shoulders.
